In an interview to Indian Express, Shah Rukh Khan speaking about Raees said,

"Raees is more commercial. Even though it has got lines like 'Baniye ka dimaag and miyanbhai ki daring', director Rahul Dholakia and editor Deepa Bhatia are making it in a very real zone. It's like a biopic of a man who rises from nothing and becomes powerful. And then, power kills him. It is realistically shot with actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Mahira Khan, Zeeshan Ayyub."
