Video: Raees To Have Mahira Khan and NOT Ankita Shorey - Raees - SRK
Former Femina Miss India Ankita Shorey on Friday confirmed that she was part of Shah Rukh Khanâs upcoming Raees but was later replaced by Pakistani actress Mahira Khan.
âYes, I was the initial choice for the female lead of the film. In fact I went through the look test for the role as it is a character of a Pakistani Muslim girl, and they were looking for a certain face. I waited for six months for the confirmation and to join the workshop to prepare for the role. However, a last-minute change happened,â said the model-turned-actress.
Shorey said she found out about the rumours when she was in Paris recently for the French European Indian Fashion Week.
