The recently announced film Raees that is said to feature Shah Rukh Khan and Farhan Akhtar, seems to finally be picking up steam. After an initial back and forth on the lead actor of the film, we now hear that lyricist and composer Ram Sampath has also been roped in for the film.
Sampath who shot to fame with the hit track ‘Bhaag DK Bose‘ from the Imran Khan starrer Delhi Belly has apparently been roped in to helm the music division of the film. Raees that is said to be an action drama set in Gujarat will feature SRK as a bootlegger while Farhan plays the role of a cop. However, the lead actress of the film has yet to be finalized. Produced by Excel Entertainment and directed by Rahul Dholakia, the film is expected to start shooting from November 1, and is slated for release next year.
