Bollywood King Khan’s Raees is looking to delay after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) announcing for a ban on Pakistani actors in the wake of the Uri attack and the film is holding Mahira Khan in the leading star cast.

The film which is directed by Rahul Dholakia and co-produced by Shah Rukh and Farhan Akhtar, was set to release on January 26, 2017. But now there are reports that the release of the film is expected to be delayed because of the presence of Pakistani actress Mahira Khan.

Earlier the movie was under the scanner because of its conflict with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil. An Indian newspaper stated a source’s comment as “SRK’s film is introducing Mahira. After the MNS asked all Pakistani actors to return to their country in the wake of the Uri terror attacks, the makers are now worried this development can severely affect the business of the film,”

The hidden source, in addition, disclosed that SRK who is in Amsterdam to shoot his imminent movie together with Anushka Sharma had been stating to his team about the movie’s fate.

The source further added “Because of the MNS, the makers want to push the release date to avoid double losses. Also, they can’t afford to have the movie boycotted at the last moment due to the current tension between India and Pakistan. If the film is postponed, it will be a big win for Hrithik.”

The source further continued by saying that “Both Dilwale and Fan didn’t fare well at the box office. So, SRK will avoid taking a risk like that,”

Nevertheless, it is all not confirmed yet because the makers of the movie have always remained unavailable for comments.

Raees is an action thriller movie produced by Gauri Khan and Ritesh Sidhwani under their banners Red Chillies Entertainment and Excel Entertainment.
