It’s official. Shah Rukh Khan will share screen space with Sunny Leone in his upcoming film ‘Raees’ which is being directed by Rahul Dholakia.
The producer of the film, Ritesh Sidhwani, confirmed the news on Twitter.
Ritesh said “So we have Laila – Sunny Leone, SRK & baniya ka Dimaag Rahul Dholakia in Raees.. Are you wondering what’s next?”
Sunny replied “Sooooo excited to be a part of of this !!” she later added that it’s a dream come true.
The two actors will be dancing to the tunes of the ‘Qurbani’ song ‘Laila o Laila’ which originally featured the late Feroz Khan and Zeenat Aman.
A source had earlier 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”
