‘Raees’ won’t be affected due to demonetisation, says superstar Shah Rukh Khan

Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan thinks his upcoming film “Raaes” will not face trouble due to demonetisation, which has affected the business of some Bollywood films released in the past weeks.

“I think things will genuinely get better. It has taken some time (to come to normal) and it should. So, initially choices were made by people. When there is a cash crunch, luxury takes a backseat,” Shah Rukh told reporters here at the trailer launch of “Raaes”.

“I think the situation has eased off. In a few days things will be better. It is a better time period. I have been made to understand with ‘Dear Zindagi’ that there is difference in terms of positivity to spend money for entertainment,” he said Releasing on January 25, “Raaes” also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Mahira Khan.

The Rahul Dholakia-directed action drama is produced by Excel Entertainment and Red Chillies.
