For all those fans of Shah Rukh Khan who loved his portrayal of 'Miyan Bhai' in the movie "Raees", have something to rejoice. 

In a Twitter conversation on January 17, director Rahul Dholakia, Ritesh Sidhwani seemed to have confirmed a sequel to the movie.  

Dholakia tweeted, "#Raees most Pirated film of 2017. Now how does one react to this? @ritesh_sid, to which, Sidhwani replied, "Look at the brighter side the audience we have for the sequel #RaeesReturns."
