The producers started scouting for a composer and many names including Anu Malik were approached for the same. But it is Pritam who made the cut.

A source close to Pritam confirmed the news and said, “Pritam has composed a couple of songs for the film out of which one is definitely going to be included in Raees. The song could be shot in Morocco or Dubai as Shah Rukh's schedule already includes a visit to these places.”

It was made clear that Mahira will not return to the country to promote the film.

And now, Shah Rukh is set to serenade her on foreign shores. Buzz is, it is currently a toss-up between Dubai and Morocco.

Raees is scheduled for a January 25 release.
