Rahul Dholakia has to share about Shah Rukh Khan and Pakistani actor Mahira Khan’s film Top News Director Rahul Dholakia on recreating Gujarat of the ’80s for Raees and the challenges of making commercial films The film stars Shah Rukh Khan and Pakistani actor Mahira Khan Raees is one of the most anticipated movies of 2017 What kind of investment has the movie demanded Five years of life I have done nothing else during this period I rarely go to parties When I did and the host asked who are you bringing with you I used to say: ‘I am bringing Raees’ The research of the movie its writing location scouting production design and shooting had taken over my life Watch | Shah Rukh Khan: I Am A Small Time Guy Who Had To Work Very Hard What was most challenging about putting this movie together Every stage was challenging you have to create a whole world and we were not adapting someone’s book Fortunately my co-writers Harit Mehta and Ashish Vashi are journalists based in Ahmedabad They had done their research and could share a lot of stories and anecdotes For each aspect of the film references were different For instance to create the set we had to go from Surat to Vadodara Bhuj and other parts of Gujarat looking at Muslim architecture and influences that exist in old cities Referring to these designs and architecture we created the mohallas and colour palette for the film Since the story spans from the ’70s to the ’90s we had to keep the detailing in mind The same detailing was also required in the costumes make-up and even sound designing while keeping in mind that it is a commercial film Also read |Raees Dhingana song: Bootlegger Shah Rukh Khan rules ‘farzi’ world in style Watchvideo When the trailer of Raees released some believed Shah Rukh Khan’s look stereotypes a Muslim character I don’t think it is a stereotypical representation of a Muslim man’s look We should not forget that he is playing a Muslim character in the ’80s He does not wear pathan suits always; he wears trousers and shirt too The film shows his character in three different stages of his life At one stage you will find him wearing boots with zips For me creating his character was most crucial after the story You say Raees is not based on Abdul Latif’s life What got you interested in this period We are creating an original story I am a fan of gangster movies especially those made by Martin Scorsese Some of my friends have liquor stores and they suggested that I do a film on prohibition The liquor lobby wants to fund a subject like this set in India and since they are not allowed to advertise they would do their product placement Choosing the subject of prohibition meant taking the story to Gujarat as Bihar was not facing it then And I wanted to set the story in Gujarat before 2002 because after that it becomes Narendra Modi’s Gujarat It also had to be set after 1960 when it split from the Bombay Presidency It was not titled Raees at first We thought of Dry Day Hooch and Prohibition before deciding on Raees It is a drama which has a Robin Hood-like gangster and touches upon politics and the state’s culture When you made Lamha after Perzania some critics did not like the commercial approach you had adopted Everyone has a different opinion Today I don’t know who is a critic Some people write from the trade point of view; some express their views in the form of a letter to their grandma Perzania did not have any songs For Raees you have released three songs already including Sunny Leone dancing to Laila Main Laila Songs are often incorporated into films due to the demands of the producers who claim it is the demand of the distributors The distributors cite it as the demand of the audience However Sunny is not doing an item number in Raees It is part of the narrative Would you call Mehbooba Mehbooba from Sholay an item number In the movie we are still in a real zone Yet the script of Raees lends itself to a big-budget film Watch |Sunny Leone dancing to Laila Main Laila One of the lead actors of Raees Mahira Khan can’t be part of the promotions in India Do you wish things were different I don’t want to upset anybody It is the producer’s call how to promote a film Quite honestly it is unfair to the actress and the filmmakers But if for some reason we have let that go then we have to do that Also read |Shah Rukh

believe you could have made Perzania today I believe so It depends on what you want to make It might be tougher and more challenging but one should make the film he/she wishes without any fear Things have changed and people are over-sensitive regarding certain things But by and large we are good to go For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | Reykjavik | Published: October 10 2017 11:36 am Iceland qualified for the FIFA World Cup for the first time (Reuters Photo) Top News Iceland’s soccer supporters were in raptures on Monday as they celebrated in the capital and across the country after the national team qualified for their first World Cup Iceland the smallest country ever to reach the finals booked their ticket to next year’s tournament in Russia by beating Kosovo 2-0 to top their European qualifying group “Are you kidding We are going to the World Cup” the local TV commentator screamed as the final whistle blew and fireworks erupted over the Laugardalsvollur national stadium Crowds of people waited at Ingolfstorg in downtown Reykjavik for the Iceland players to arrive by bus and when their heroes appeared on stage there was a deafening roar Emmsje Gauti one of Iceland’ most famous rappers joined in the celebrations with the national team who jumped around in delight amd sang ‘Reykjavík er okkar’ ‘Reykjavik is ours’ At the American Bar the biggest sports bar in downtown Reykjavík the cry was: “Iceland to the World Cup” Outside the rain came down but inside nothing could dampen the spirits “The smallest country to get to the World Cup by far this is surreal” supporter Gunnar Atli Thorodssen said on a busy Monday night “I have to book my ticket to Russia immediately” Iceland has a population of about 350000 while the previous smallest country to have reached a World Cup was Trinidad & Tobago in 2006 which had 13 million people Viking Clap Earlier team captain Aron Gunnarsson could be seen joining in with the stadium crowd’s now-famous traditional Viking clap The crowd in the bar watching on TV clapped along with the primal chant which is sure to be a feature in Russia next year as it

Heimir Hallgrímsson told TV reporters Behind him the players joined the crowd in singing “Feroalok” the team’s anthem which means: “I am home” Gunnarsson has no doubt that the World Cup is where Iceland ranked 22nd in last month’s world rankings belong “Nonsense I don’t know if this is nonsense” he said “After we lost against Croatia (in the 2014 World Cup playoffs) we aimed at qualifying next time In my opinion we were in the most difficult group but we decided that we were just going to finish this We had no interest in some playoff bother” Inside the bar the rambunctious crowd wearing their red white and blue jerseys bounced around Even the tourists appeared to get caught up in the excitement “Not since 1996 when Tony Adams played for Arsenal have I followed football but last summer that all changed” said Arni thor Arnason with a beer in his hand “Now we’re going to the World Cup unreal I still don’t believe it” Reykjavík’s bars usually close at 1am on weekdays but Monday’s celebrations seemed set to continue until dawn There will be some sore heads on Tuesday but come the start of the World Cup the whole country will likely be at a standstill For all the latest
