Raees Movie Music Preview

The famous music director and composer Ram Sampath, who has given sounds to many Bollywood movies and commercial advertisements; is going to compose the background score of the movie Raees.


The shooting of the film Raees (2016) began in April 2015 and to portray the ‘80s Ahmedabad slums properly, a set has been designed accordingly in Mumbai. The last schedule of the shooting was held in Ahmedabad and Bhuj earlier this year. While King Khan was shooting in Ahmedabad a group of people attacked his car and shouted slogans demanding to boycott the movie. SRK faced almost a similar kind of welcome in Bhuj too and many believe these all are a reaction to Badshah’s  recent comments on intolerance in India.
