Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees is just a week away from releasing and his co-star Mahira Khan cannot promote the film in our country, thanks to the ban on Pakistani artists. In an exclusive interview with Mohommed Zeeshan Ayyub, who plays a key role in Raees, we asked him what does he think of Mahira being unable to promote the film in India. He went on to say, ” I think this is definitely unfortunate ki wo nahin kar pa rahin hai ismein toh koi shaq ki baat nahi hai. Aapki ek film hoti hai, aapka ek alag he lagav hota hai aur usmein bhi if it’s a launch for you in a big industry wo bhi Shah Rukh Khan ke sath.. I am sure she must be feeling bad ki wo nahi promote kar pa rahi hai and that she cannot come here. Ab inlogon ke aapas mein decisions hai toh I cannot say anything but its unfair aur ye koi bohot achhi baat nahi hui hai that she is not promoting the film. Ye kahin nahi kahin humari ek kamzori ko darshata hai ki hum bohot kamzor hogaye hai aur hum ek kamzor state ki tarah decisions le rahe hai. (I think this is definitely unfortunate that Mahira can’t promote Raees in India. Every time you do a film, you have an emotional attachment to it and if its something as big as your launch and that too with Shah Rukh Khan, it is a big deal. I am sure she must be feeling bad because she isn’t getting to come here for the promotions. I don’t really have a say in this but it is unfair on Mahira.)”.
Talking about SRK in Raees, Zeeshan went on to mention that it was a learning experience working with King Khan of Bollywood. Raees, directed by Rahul Dholakia is slated to release on January 25, 2017.
