It’s a complex role and both the film’s director Rahul Dholakia and producers, Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, believe she is perfect for the part,” the daily quoted a source as saying. The film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a cop who is up against the don. Casting of the leading lady for Raees had been quite a task for the makers. From Sonam Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra to Kriti Sanon, several actresses were considered for the part but it seems Mahira got lucky.
