Shah Rukh Khan is basking in the success of his latest release Raees. The movie is set to cross the Rs 100 Crore mark today. A success party was thrown last night and it was attended by the cast and crew of the film. The movie has also garnered good reviews from the critics. Industry friends of the actor, who got to see the film at special screenings, have also been gushing about Raees. And you know what… Shah Rukh gets to hear all about people raving about his performance from no one else but his wife Gauri Khan.
Being one of the producers of Raees, Gauri holds special screenings of Raees for close friends and industry members, even when SRK is not around. And according to an entertainment portal, she live texts the reactions of the audience to her hubby. “Gauri is very excited about Raees and she has loved SRK’s anti hero role in the film. She has been hosting special screenings of the film for close friends from the industry and is enjoying the positive reactions that her hubby dear’s film is receiving. Shah Rukh Khan has been busy promoting the film and therefore he hasn’t been around to attend these screenings at Mannat. He quickly meets the guests before retiring to his study where people are waiting to meet him. However, during the film, Gauri keeps on messaging the Khan and keeping him updated about which scene or dialogue was loved by their friends,” the portal quoted a source.
Though in his own admittance SRK is quite tired of it all. “I am very tired by the end of it. I have no feelings when the film releases. Every film that comes out there is a trial, which I might not get to see. During the trials people say good and bad things. It is a strange numb zone. After two-three days (of release), I spend time and think about it. I keep it to myself.” said Shah Rukh while talking to IANS.
