Shah Rukh Khan and Mahira Khan were recently shooting for a romantic scene for the movie "Raees" and reports suggest that the Pakistani actress got uncomfortable while shooting the scene.

Shah Rukh will be seen romancing debutant Mahira Khan in the upcoming flick and the stars have been busy shooting for the same.

One report in Bollywoodlife stated that Shah Rukh and Mahira were shooting for a scene in which SRK had to come close to the actress, hold her hand and kiss her shoulder.

However, Mahira apparently was feeling too shy to do the scene and Shah Rukh had to make her understand to ease her nervousness.

"Since the actress is from an industry which doesn't believe in such proximity even when it is a romantic scene, the actress got a little jittery on the sets. But SRK, like a sweetheart, sat with her and tried to understand her discomfort," the report stated.

Eventually, Shah Rukh's words helped Mahira to relax and the duo managed to complete the scene, according to the report.

Directed by Rahul Dholakia, "Raees" also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui, along with Shah Rukh and Mahira. The film is apparently about a bootlegger, played by Shah Rukh, whose illegal businesses are challenged by a tough cop, played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

The film is slated to be released next Eid and is supposed to have a box office clash with Salman Khan's "Sultan".
