WEB DESK: Shahrukh Khan’s next movie, Raees is in the news for all the wrong reasons these days. First it was reported that MNS will not be allowing Raees and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in Mumbai as it stars Pakistani actors, but now another buzz is creating fuss.

Now it is being said that the movie that already faced a delay before, will again be delayed as the movie stars Mahira Khan as the leading lady.

“SRK’s film is introducing Mahira. After the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (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,” says the insider.

 

The source says SRK, who was recently in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) to shoot for another project with Anushka Sharma, had been coordinating with his team about his next step. “Because of the MNS order, 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. Both Dilwale (2015) and Fan didn’t fare well at the box office. So, SRK will avoid taking a risk like that,” reveals the source.
