WEB DESK: Bollywood actor Sunny Leone is all set to star in Shahrukh Khan’s upcoming film “Raees”, Mumbai Mirror reported.
The two will shake a leg to the 1980 chart buster “Laila O Laila” for SRK’s upcoming crime-drama.
“Raees is set in the ’80s and there was 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 and it was his idea to get Sunny on board. A lavish set is being created in Mumbai and rehearsals are on in full swing,” reveals a source close to the development.
Raees producers Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, who happen to be fans of the classic, acquired the rights to the Amit Kumar-Kanchan song which they will re-record with faster beats.
The duo will be seen in a similar get up as the original Zeenat Aman and Feroze Khan set up, reports say.
