Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will begin the shoot of his next film `Raes` from November 1 and has requested producer Ritesh Sidhwani to give him an off on his birthday, which falls the day after.
The Rahul Dholakia-directed film will see SRK pair up with director-actor-singer Farhan Akhtar for the first time on-screen.
"Ritesh you will give me a day off on my Birthday na and not be a tough producer please," Shah Rukh posted on Twitter just moments after Sidhwani confirmed the filming date of `Raes`.
SRK will celebrate his 49th birthday on November 2 this year. `Raes` is a Gujarat-based film and has been co-produced by Sidhwani and Akhtar.
