IANS | Mumbai |

The trailer of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Raees has been unveiled on Wednesday and it runs high on action, drama and romance as seen in the over two-minute video.
The Rahul Dholakia’s directorial stars Shah Rukh in an intense role and it can be seen in the trailer too. On one hand, King Khan is showing some daredevil fight scenes and on the other hand, his romantic side has been captured well with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, who plays the female lead in the film.
The trailer starts with Shah Rukh saying: “Ammi jaan kehti thi koi dhandha chhota nahi hota, aur dhande se bada koi dharm nahi hota (Mother used to say that no business is small and there is no religion bigger than business)”.
The 51-year-old star will be essaying the role of ‘Raees’, a bootlegger. He is seen sporting eyes highlighted by kohl, and scruffy look for his upcoming film Raees.
The film also stars acclaimed actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is essaying the character of a stubborn officer. A glimpse of his powerful acting also can be seen in the trailer.
Aap mujhe kahin bhi transfer kar dijiye, Raees ko nahin chhodunga (Transfer me anywhere you want, I will not leave Raees alone),” Nawazuddin’s character is seen delivering this dialogue in one of the scenes in the trailer.
Apart from action and drama, there is a sprinkle of romance too! Shah Rukh is seen romancing Pakistani actress Mahira Khan in the trailer. Mahira looks every bit coy and also interesting. The chemistry between SRK and Mahira seems sizzling. 
The trailer also showed a glimpse of actress Sunny Leone, who is seen grooving to new take on the 1980 chartbuster Laila O laila from Qurbaani. The song is picturised on Sunny and Shah Rukh. The original track featured Feroz Khan and Zeenat Amaan.
The film is said to be based on the life of a city-based underworld don of the 1980s, Abdul Lateef Shaikh, who was killed in a shootout with the police.
