From the time Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming crime film Raees was announced, the excitement surrounding it has been tremendous. From its talented Director to its pedigree cast to fans gushing over SRK’s possible return to playing strong characters, Raees has been making news for all the right reasons. So this latest development regarding the film is only going to send the excitement surrounding it straight into the stratosphere.
It’s been learned that none other than bombshell Sunny Leone will be performing an item number on the yesteryears song ‘Laila O laila’. Whether SRK too will be part of the song remains to be seen, but this latest bit of news is sure to send fans, who were already upbeat for the movie, into a tizzy. If SRK were to feature in the song, it would be nothing short of a major casting coup.
It looks like Sunny Leone is certainly enhancing her stock in Bollywood. First it was Aamir Khan who came out in support of her, and said that he wouldn’t mind working with her in the future. And, now, she’s bagged a song in an SRK movie. We’re glad to see that the actress’ hard work is finally paying off.
Raees is being helmed by National Award-winning Director Rahul Dholakia and produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment. Besides Shah Rukh, the film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Aarya Babbar, Govind Namdev, and Pakistani actress Mahira Khan. The film is slated for an Eid release this year.
