The team of Raees –which features Shah Rukh Khan as a bootlegger and has liquor prohibition as the backdrop — ironically celebrated the movie’s success with a party sans alcohol.
To celebrate the occasion, the film’s team, along with Shah Rukh, gathered in Mumbai. It being January 30 — Martyr’s Day that marks Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination — it also happens to be a dry day, said a source close to the filmmakers.
Producer Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment said in a statement: “The entire team is very happy with the critical acclaim and audience reaction to the film. It has been a perfect combination. It seems that all efforts have come to fruition.” “Hence, we want to celebrate this occasion with everyone who has been part of this journey.” Raees has received a promising response due to the performances of actors, hard-hitting dialogues, and foot-tapping music.
