With 2017 on the anvil, Shah Rukh Khan has set our hearts racing with the trailer for his upcoming flick, Raees today. Slated for a release on 25th January 2017, Raees is based on the life of criminal Abdul Latif in 1980s Gujrat, a bootlegger whose business is highly challenged and eventually thwarted by a police officer, ACP Majmudar. A versatile actor, SRK lent us valuable life lessons in Dear Zindagi. A stark contrast and what seems to be on the other end of the spectrum, Raees chronicles the business shenanigans, love tales, and racy action sequences of Raees Alam. The imagery of Shah Rukh Khan emerging out of the smoke with those deep-set kohled eyes gave us serious jitters! The trailer also showcases Gujrat with the regional elements imbibed strongly through a garba sequence. Lending support and standing out on his own is Nawazuddin Siddiqui who plays the role of ACP Majumdar. Also, seen is the demure Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, who looks absolutely stunning and ethereal in colorful dresses! But what struck an instant chord was SRK’s retro look and we cannot help but be awed by those vintage vibes. As true blue SRK fans, we are hooked and booked. Portraying a Muslim criminal of 1980s, SRK looks charming, sexy, ruggedly handsome and hot AF in a Pathani suit! With a slew of vintage trends rehashing their presence in 2016, that peaked our roving eye, with Raees, SRK promises 2017 as yet another amazing year of vintage trends making a gala comeback. With a ginormous fan following, SRK’s vintage vibes will definitely be a rage and here are 2 easy ways to emulate the Raees look!
