Few days back there were reports that Sunny Leone will be doing an item song in Raees. Now the confirmation has been made by the makers.
Shahrukh Khan and Sunny Leone will be dancing on ‘Qurbani’s hit song ‘Laila o Laila’ which had originally featured Feroz Khan and Zeenat Aman. Producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani acquired the rights to Amit Kumar-Kanchan song which is being re-recorded and rendered with faster beats.
Ritesh made the confirmation on Twitter as he posted, "So we have Laila
@SunnyLeone @iamsrk & baniya ka Dimaag @rahuldholakia in #Raees.. R u wondering what's next ??
A source said, “Raees is set in the ’80s and there was a need of a song sequence. The makers unanimously selected “Laila O Laila“ which perfectly fits with the dark, gangster theme and period. It was suggested to Shah Rukh Khan and it was his idea to get Sunny Leone on board. A lavish set is being created in Mumbai and rehearsals are on in full swing. She will begin shooting for Raees next month. It will be a two-day schedule,”
