WATCH Raees trailer: You can look this good when you're playing a baddie only when you are The Shah Rukh Khan

The much anticipated trailer of Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees is out and it seems like the wait was worth while. Shah Rukh Khan is a kickass don in this.

The much anticipated trailer of Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees is out and it seems like the wait was worth while. The film features SRK in the character of a Gujarati bootlegger and the actor is all set to conquer the screen in January next year. With strict looks, heavy dialogues and the intense aura, Raees showcases King Khan in a never seen before avatar.

Supporting SRK this time is Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub of Tanu Weds Manu Returns fame. While the trailer seems quiet violent, what makes it different is how our own Raees miyan still doesn’t fail to look every bit as a hero. The beauty of Rahul Dholakia’s direction is that he manages to garner sympathy for his negative characters.

The music of the film has been given by Ram Sampath and the melodies in the background bring a hint of despair yet freedom. Of course, SRK appears to be the heart and soul of the film but the effervescent Mahira Khan sparks a brilliant chemistry with SRK in this two minutes 46 seconds trailer.
