SRK to shoot Raees’s dance sequence with Mahira Khan at a foreign location ?
After the unfortunate Uri attack that claimed lives of 19 soldiers, all Pakistani artistes came under the political radar and were asked to return to their home country, which they have already complied with. Filmmakers who had cast them in their films and the ones who were planning to cast them in their future directorials are obviously upset. And the makers of Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Raees’ too are not an exception. Since their leading lady has returned to Pakistani, the makers are in a fix and finding it difficult to shoot crucial scenes and song sequences that require Mahira.
According to the latest reports, while the most crucial opening sequence, which was initially supposed to be shot with SRK and Mahira together, will now be shot with SRK alone, the bigger problem lies in shooting song sequences which cannot be shot without Mahira. Hence, the makers will now have to shoot the song and dance sequences with SRK and Mahira at a foreign location because there is no way they will be allowed to shoot with a Pakistani actor in India, at least in the near future. And that will obviously shoot up the production cost considerably!
