The prelude to the Uttar Pradesh election has been full of political drama. Family feuds, splits, alliances and public spats - all the right ingredients for a action-packed thriller. 

And thanks to the internet and its endless caverns of humour, we have the whole saga of the Akhilesh-Rahul alliance vs Modi reimagined into the script of the Raees trailer.

The Shah Rukh Khan starrer may have received mixed reviews but with Akhilesh, Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi cut into the trailer's dramatic dialogue sequences, complete with Akhilesh's face being photoshopped into a scene where SRK makes an entry through the smoke - this one's bound to be a hit with the audiences.

The genius who rehashed the trailer also has Akhilesh's wife replacing Mahira Khan as our hero's love interest. Even Priyanka Gandhi makes a cameo.

Oh and, the editor also tried to make sure that the footage of the politicians he used lip syncs with the voiceovers in the trailer. Not that he/she succeeds completely, but brownie points for trying!
