The craze and buzz around Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees are rising with each passing day. The film is slated to the screens on 25 January and clashing with Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil. A few days back, internet went crazy after the similarities between the Raees trailer and Netflix’ web series — Narcos. And now there’s a new video with a mashup of The Dark Knight with Raees’ dialogues.
There is no Sunny Leone and Mahira Khan, though. The mashup only focuses on the conversation between SRK and Nawauzddin. While Heath Ledger is the one mouthing SRK’s lines, it’s the Batman who is sounding like Nawaz in the one minute three seconds video.
For the uninitiated, the character of joker, played by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight is one of the finest performances in international cinema till date. In fact, it made him won an Academy Award for the Best Actor performance.
Raees, directed by Rahul Dholakia, stands as one of the highly anticipated films since a long time. It was initially slated to release with Salman Khan’s Sultan during Eid 2016. However, the clash got averted and the makers decided to release the film on Diwali this year. The film still could not see the light of the day because two other big films — Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay were hitting the big screens during the same weekend. After much delay, Raees is the big Republic Day release next year.
Watch out for this one.
