Eclipsing the era of male leads playing the conventional good characters, SRK got curiosity levels soaring high with a character having shades of grey.
Raees and SRK’s angry man avatar is hailed by none other than Bollywood’s original angry young man, Amitabh Bachchan.
The veteran actor took to twitter to share his thoughts on Shah Rukh’s impeccable performance in Raees.

Shah Rukh Khan lives the character on celluloid as he plays the layered personality of Raees, who is less of a gangster but more of an impresario, garnering reverence, love and fear with utmost ease and perfection.
It is after more than two decades that Shah Rukh Khan is back to playing a grey role on celluloid, with his last being Darr and Baazigar. The film has proved true to the audience’s expectations and has been doing exceptional business ever since its release, with its first day collections being 20.46 cr.
Raees has been witnessing housefull theatres in its 2 day old run at the box office, thereby setting cash registers ringing. The film has left the audience absolutely entertained and has been growing stronger with tremendous positive word of mouth!
