After coming out with a superlative teaser of Yash Raj Film's Fan, Shah Rukh Khan is all set to give his fans an early 'Eidi' in the form of Raees' teaser. The teaser is releasing all across the digital platforms tonight. The thriller film which is directed by Rahul Dholakia is about liquor smuggling in Gujarat where in SRK will play a Gujarati don.

Produced by Excel Entertainment, the film marks the return of Shah Rukh Khan in a negative role after Anjaam, Baazigar, Darr, Don and Don 2. The actor plays the title role of Raees in the film whereas Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the character of a tough cop chasing Shah Rukh Khan.

In the past, Shah Rukh Khan had expressed his excitement about Raees to DNA, "It's a very earthy role, something that I have missed doing for so many years. Today, I have reached a stage in life where I would want to go in the morning on the sets and feel I have put my best foot forward. I was like this in the first seven-eight years of my career. I have not even done a rehearsal for the film, but I can assure you that no one can do the film like me. It sounds extremely pompous and arrogant, but I am being humble at the same time."

Raees clashes with Salman Khan's Sultan on Eid next year.
