Shah Rukh Khan may be determined to continue shooting for his action-thriller "Raees", but rain gods have other plans.
The shooting of the Rahul Dhalakia directorial in Mumbai on Sunday had to be cancelled due to unexpected rains.
Shah Rukh took to Twitter to share his disappointment. "Feel awful the whole of Raees team fighting against rain & time...my injury hampering Ravi Varma, Rahul & Maneka even more. Damn!" he tweeted on 7 June.
Rahul Dholakia was calm.
"@iamsrk you inspire #raees - don't know any one who would dare do action within days of a knee surgery. Inshallah all will be fine."
There was always a fear of rains playing spoilsport.
"A huge set has been erected in Film City and due to SRK's injury a lot of precious time has been wasted. They need to wrap up a major chunk of the schedule before monsoon hits the city as the set will have to be dismantled at that point. So he had to return to work despite being advised rest. These sequences were to be filmed last week," a source associated with the film had told Mirror last week.
Co-produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan's Excel Entertainment, the story of "Raees" is set in the 1980s and has SRK play the role of a Gujarati bootlegger. The film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who will be seen playing a cop.
Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, who is known for her television show "Humsafar", will be seen opposite King Khan.
Besides "Raees", Shah Rukh, who has wrapped up "Fan" shoot, will soon start shooting for Rohit Shetty's "Dilwale".
