Shah Rukh Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Mahira Khan are to star in Raees and SRK has nothing but praises for Pakistani actress and acclaimed Indian actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. While speaking with reporters at an event, SRK said that he will have to up his game to perform as well as the duo.

“Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan are there in the film (Raees). Both of them are very accomplished actors. I think the cast is really wonderful,” SRK said at the launch of Dabboo Ratnani’s annual calendar on Monday.

“Now I would have to excel and perform like them,”, added the actor, who is set to join the film’s shoot by March end.

Shah Rukh has already met Mahira and seen her television work. He is quite impressed with her talent.

“Rahul (Dholakia) liked her. She suited the film a lot. I have seen a little bit part of her television stuff. I have met her and she is marvellous actor,” the 49-year-old said.

To be directed by Dholakia, ‘Raees’ is being co-produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani.
