A lot of speculations have been doing the rounds regarding Shah Rukh Khan's 'Raees'. While there were rumours about the film being shelved, producer Ritesh Sidhwani rubbished them last week and revealed that the film will soon go on-floors.
And now there is a new revelation about the film. Contrary to the reports that suggested actress Ileana D'Cruz has been roped in to play the lead actress in 'Raees', the producers have signed newbie Mahira Khan as the leading lady opposite Badshah Shah Rukh Khan.
Producer Ritesh Sidhwani got on to twitter and confirmed the same. â€œOur leading lady in #Raees @themahirakhan @iamsrk @rahuldholakia @FarOutAkhtar,â€ posted Ritesh.
The film, which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, will be going on-floors in February 2015 and will be wrapped up by June 2015. However, the release date of the film is yet not declared.
