Raees team is upset that Mahira couldn't attend the film's success party

Raees is inching towards the INR100 crore club and to celebrate the film's success the team threw a grand party in Mumbai last night. Unfortunately, the only person missing was Mahira Khan.

And the Pakistani actor's absence was felt by the team.

The film's director Rahul Dholakia gave her a special shout-out to Mahira on Twitter.

And Mahira promptly replied:

In a Twitter session with her fans, Mahira's co-star Sunny Leone, who featured in Raees item song 'Laila Main Laila', consoled a Mahira fan from India and praised the actor.

In response, Mahira Khan tweeted, "Missed everyone so much tonight."

The film cast and crew weren't the only ones upset about the missing Humsafar star. Mahira fans felt she deserved to be a part of her film's success as well:

When film flops, the producers throw success party to hide failure. Same is true with ADHM. It's a flop movie. Dangal is still doing better while Raees and Kaabil full flop show.

Rajat Jan 31, 2017 03:58pm

Shahrukh Khan may hold record of most flop movies in successsion.

Rajat Jan 31, 2017 04:02pm

This is copied from main stream Indian media "Kaabil and Raees are struggling to touch Rs 100-crore mark. Both films were released five days ago. But despite Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees showing initial momentum, the film clearly fails to live up to the expectations in terms of box office numbers. All the hype surrounding this gangster-drama seems to be falling apart with each passing day. This at least proves that the presence of SRK is no longer the sole factor for writing the narrative of the film. There has to be more than that. The audience has got very little patience with bad films but also an eagerness to watch ‘original’ content. That’s where Dangal succeeds."

But, I have seen the film on media-download and the film failed miserably on all parameters of entertainment. It is just a useless street urchin (don-hood) film with no any lesson in the end, except an illegal execution by police in the wild as usual.

Excellent Gangsta Movie. King Khan

oracle Jan 31, 2017 05:36pm

Brilliant movie, contrarty to what a lot of indians are saying, Mahira Khan acted pretty well for the role she was given. and as usual SRK and Nawazzudin rocked it

Google Jan 31, 2017 05:37pm

Zabardast movie, with great dialogue and superb acting by King Khan

zafar Jan 31, 2017 05:46pm

@Rajat Exactly right, Dangal is a super hit.

mohammed Mirza Jan 31, 2017 06:08pm

It was an excellent movie by srk, Nawazuddin and Mahira. She acted very well. Pity she couldnt make it for the celebration with these goons making threats.

Naeem Jan 31, 2017 06:39pm ordinary movie. Initial hype was due to big name of SRK. No where close to the quality of "Dungaal"

Jawwad Jan 31, 2017 06:50pm

Raeees or Dangal doesn't matter. Indian industry is a flop without the Khan's. And before that Khan's again hidden as Kumars'.

RAJJAN Jan 31, 2017 08:33pm

One of the poor movie made by shahrukh... This story is boring watching SRK is bad experience of new year...dangal is still doing well ..

sk Jan 31, 2017 08:40pm

@Jawwad we love our Khans and Kalams and Koms and you name them.

Ali (Proud Indian) Jan 31, 2017 08:41pm

@Rajat Why do you even bother commenting - every film seems to be a flop for you - such negativity!! If you can't appreciate something its better to stay quiet!!

Fawad Jan 31, 2017 09:03pm

Mahira should not go to India.

amit Jan 31, 2017 09:09pm

BTW Mahira khan was below average in the movie. Raaees is a FLOP by Indian standards and is struggling to make 100 crores. Usually 100 cr is done in 3 day weekend. Same with Kabil which is struggling to make 100cr mark. Both production houses will recover their investment but distributers will lose heavily.

Melkor Jan 31, 2017 10:57pm

I saw the movie. Mahira Khan's acting was nothing to write home about, although this could be be because of her limited role.

Parikshit Jan 31, 2017 11:03pm

@Jawwad and those Khan's are nothing without India

sanam Jan 31, 2017 11:08pm

She did a horrible job in Raees, it was like no emotions in her or something she was so dull. Sorry but she had the opportunity of a lifetime and she did not perform up to par. She doesn't deserve to be in bollywood.

SC Jan 31, 2017 11:54pm

I liked the songs. Movie is average, Nawazuddin outperformed SRK. What an actor. Wish him and Mahira all the success.

mirzaghalib Feb 01, 2017 03:31am

@Ali (Proud Indian) because he is telling the truth the way it is

Sk Feb 01, 2017 03:38am

Raees is one the most brilliant movies without a doubt, except for time of its release, when sectarian hostility is at its peak. I appreciate SRK for his courage & passion despite unfavourable circumstances, 'cause he is a patriot, passionate & delightful artist with his 30 years of dedication & hardwork with film industry. Good luck.

Who Cares

shaan Feb 01, 2017 08:27am

Ignore the negative comments below they all are right wingers they tried their best to spread negativity about Raees in India but all their attempts failed film has earned 100 crore on Monday it's already in profit zone within 6 days of its release. Film is going to release in Pakistan this week so they are here to spread negativity about it.A gentleman here commented that movies cross 100 crores within 3 days for him I want to say 2 movies released on same day affects business due to sharing of screens between both films.Only Khan movies earn 100 crore in 3 days Kumar/devgan films earn it in 10 days.So haters stop spreading negativity about the film you'll fail miserably here too.

N D Gaur Feb 01, 2017 09:32am

I am going to watch this movie soon, just for Mahira Khan. She is a classy, talented and more beautiful than many Bollywood actresses and should do more movies in India!

Niaz khan Feb 01, 2017 09:40am

@Ali (Proud Indian) .you snatched words frm my finger. Good ans bro

Sky Feb 01, 2017 10:19am

@Jawwad you have many of them. Then why is lollywood like this...?

Superstar Feb 01, 2017 10:26am

@Jawwad The so called khans won't survive with out India . Don't be so jelous of India's progress. Instead convert your regressive society into a progressive one.

Kryptonite Feb 01, 2017 10:27am

See the love !

KHanSaab Feb 01, 2017 12:22pm

Gr8 film and top notch acting. commercially could have made more but thats expected as when 2 big releases go head to head they divide the profit. To join the 200-300 crore club u need to go solo without competition like sultan and dangal did.

skumar Feb 01, 2017 01:17pm

it has already made good money ! that's all counts in show business ....

AAMER Feb 01, 2017 02:36pm

Dangaal and Raees are two different movies with totaly different story line and they both are super hits so live with it.

Pra aksha Feb 01, 2017 05:53pm

@Jawwad : Raeees or Dangal doesn't matter. Indian industry is a flop without the Khan's. And before that Khan's again hidden as Kumars'.

You are right on the wrong point!!!!!!!! India is always shining with... whosoever it may be, without caste & creed, let it be khans, Kumars, Kapoors...!!!! Because we hate 'Hate mongers!!!!!

mohammed Mirza Feb 01, 2017 05:58pm

@Rajat What the media is saying that its a hit movie! So stop bringing your negativity comments

Sawan Feb 01, 2017 10:38pm

It's called "Kare koi aur bhare koi." Mahira deserved her appearance at the grand party on Raees Success To celebrate been in the club of 100Cr. INR.

Kamal Rashid Feb 01, 2017 10:55pm

After Raees Mahira khan and Shahrukh khan can become a successful couple in remaking of Mughl-e-Azam 2 Compare Mahira with Madhu Bala and Shahrukh with Dilip saheb. Try it and make trillions

Vinod Narang Feb 01, 2017 11:40pm

@Rajat What an idiotic comment. Film did Rs.109 crores in one week. you call that a flop . I think you need to learn how to analyze things without prejudice

Pune India Feb 03, 2017 11:41am

@Sawan : 109 INR = 182 cr PKR in one week

AYZA Feb 04, 2017 01:10am

Kudos to Mahira for refusing to cave into the dirty politics and miasmic cesspool of Indian extremists of which Modi and his gang are part of.

Mahira's performance in Raees is outstanding, and she's totally au natural from head to foot
