- Shah Rukh released the trailer of Raees at about mid-day Wednesday
- On YouTube, it has 10.5 million views in less than 24 hours
- Raees releases on January 25
At about 2.45 minutes, the trailer of Raees is fairly long and while most screen time is dedicated to SRK's character (and what a character it is), Nawazuddin Siddiqui's police officer also gets a large chunk of attention. In an instant recall scene, he drives a road roller over a street lined with bottles of alcohol. Pakistani actress Mahira Khan appears as Raees Alam's love interest Mohsina and there is also a glimpse of Sunny Leone, who makes a special appearance in a reworked version of the Zeenat Aman hit song Laila O Laila.
