Excel Entertainment, the film's producers, have confirmed the news saying that Sonam will be paired opposite SRK in the upcoming thriller film "Raees", according to The Indian Express.
The film also features Farhan Akhtar in lead role. This is for the first time that SRK will be doing a film with Farhan as well as Sonam.
Shah Rukh has earlier worked in Farhan's directorial films including "Don" and "Don 2", but never shared screen space with the actor.
Apart from the fresh pairing, the film will also have Shah Rukh in a completely new avatar.
A team of makeup artists from Hollywood has been hired to work with a completely different look for SRK's character in the film.
SRK is playing the role of a Gujarati don in "Raees" and the director and maker of the film wants him to sport a new look for this film.
"They will try out not just different hair styles, but also experiment with eyebrows, beards and scars. The scar will be retained only if it works for the character. There will be no prosthetics, the look will be realistic. The team will be finalised soon and will arrive in a few months time to work with SRK," a source close to the development told Mumbai Mirror.
