Regular readers of Bollywood Celebden will be aware that we had reported earlier that Farhan Akhtar would soon be seen opposite Shahrukh Khan in the film Raees. But now, we have heard that Farhan has dropped out of the project.
The actor opted out of the film due to date issues, the shoot of Raees clashes with dates that have already been allocated to Bejoy Nambiar’s film. However, as we had reported earlier, Farhan Khan will be very much involved in the film as a producer, since Raees will be produced by Excel Entertainment.
Directed by Rahul Dholakia, Raees will feature Shahrukh playing a Gujarati character, and is slated to go on floor in mid-2014 and will hit screens on Eid 2015.
