Shahrukh Khan is one of the most hardworking and dedicated actors in Bollywood and has already signed to four new films for 2014. We recently reported that SRK will be acting in Rahul Dholakia’s “Raees” and he is already revealing some details about the new movie.

One India Entertainment reported that Khan will be seen in the Dholakia directed film, which is about two rival gangsters, as a bootlegger and will co-star Farhan Akthar as a cop in the crime drama. As for the secret behind the film’s title, he stated that both characters in the movie are “dil ke ‘Raees,’” the “tongue in cheek” reason for the name.

Dholakia revealed that the film is set in the 1980s and is based off of true life events, drawing in from real life sources. The film will most likely take place in Gujarat majority of the time and he plans to shoot “Raees” “extensively in old Ahmedabad and some parts of Saurashtra as I have spent a lot of time there.”

“I have taken elements from here and there to add to his (Akthar) character from a cop who has passed away,” said the director.

Dholakia stated that he is currently in the process of finalizing the cast and crew of the film and needs a lot of preparation for its look and styling.

“There are a lot of people in mind, but I still haven’t confirmed anyone,” said Dholakia. “There is still a lot of time to finalize the crew.”

SRK previously revealed that he will also be working on Maneesh Sharma’s “Fan,” which will begin to shoot in May 2014. By that time Khan will have finished filming for “Happy New Year,” which also co-stars Deepika Padukone.

Khan is also likely to be a part of Rohit Shetty’s new film, which is not a sequel to “Chennai Express,” despite the rumors.

Although it looks like Khan is already booked for next year, he did express that he dreams of making a Rs. 10,000 crore (about $2.058 billion) film.

SRK stated that, “one has to be tensed to be successful in life and one should not be restful and at peace with what they have if they want to be successful in life.”
