"I've never seen a co-actor like Shah Rukh in my life. People may think of him as the richest actor or that he's a superstar but what I found in him is that he is an actor above all. He's extremely supportive. The way he responds to you and your performance, it takes your performance to some another level," Nawazuddin told PTI.
"I have yet to finish my scenes in Raees. In fact, I was shooting just two days back and the way he helped and responded to those scenes was amazing. When you work with him it doesn't feel like that he has this huge stardom. On sets he's an actor," he added.
Shah Rukh plays a bootlegger Raees Alam who has irked ACP Majmudar (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) witl his lawlessness. Raees in turn is upset with Majumdar's interference and uses his contacts to get hi transferred but it's too late and the Majumdar decides to put an end to Raees' reign. Their conflicts form the film's plot.
Watch the trailer of Raees:
Of his role, Nawazuddin says: "I've played inspector in Kahaani but it was very different. He was very short-tempered, whereas in Raees my character is very cool, sensible and very professional."
Raees is releasing alongside Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam's Kaabil, produced by Rakesh Roshan.
