Ever since the trailer of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Raees was released, people cannot stay calm about how great the actor looks in his mafia avatar. And if after him it is someone who has stolen the limelight then it is SRK’s dialogue exchange with the very talented Nawazuddin Siddiqui and the subtle romance with Pakistan actor Mahira Khan. While all three character fill in the category of romance, revenge and full-on paisa-vasool drama, Sunny Leone’s short glimpse fills the glamour quotient – and yes, it just cannot be missed.
The actor, who has always set the temperature soaring with her dance numbers, will be yet again seen shaking a leg on yesteryear’s iconic number Laila O Laila and this time the Laila is not only going to take your breath away but also make SRK dance to her beats. Well yes, for the first time ever, Sunny and Shah Rukh will be sharing the screen space on the revamped version of yesteryear hit, which starred the veteran actor Zeenat Aman.
It is not a long time back when Sunny Leone’s interview with a journalist saw her facing derogatory and sexist questions. However, she held her own and won respect for her graceful answers both within the industry and outside.
We remember how people were quite confident that none of the leading actors, especially Khans of the industry, would want to work with the former porn star. However, Raees’ trailer has proven people wrong. And Sunny’s appearance even in the trailer is nothing but a tight slap on the faces of all those who failed to look beyond Sunny’s past.
Read SRK-Sunny Leone’s Tweet exchange:

You are too gracious. Thank u for adding so much to Raees. Keep smiling https://t.co/2WHoYkSP83

While the yesteryear song is still a party starter, would Sunny be able to cross the hotness benchmark set by Zeenat Aman? Well, only future has the answer to it. But if we go by the short glimpse of Sunny in the trailer then one more hit from the ‘Baby Doll’ actor is on the way. Meanwhile, both SRK and Sunny have been admiring each other on the social media. The ‘Laila’ of Raees took to Twitter and wrote, “There are certain people who can change ur life in entertainment& Mr @iamsrk can!!Thank u! @rahuldholakia sir thank u4 giving me a chance!” and in return, SRK wrote, “You are too gracious. Thank u for adding so much to Raees. Keep smiling.”
Even in the press conference of trailer launch, the superstar had spoken about how professional and a warm person Sunny is. Well, seems like the trail of Sunny working with superstars had started with Shah Rukh. So, will we see Salman Khan and Aamir Khan following the Romance King? Earlier, Aamir Khan had said that he would definitely work with Sunny when he will get a concept worth the actor. We are definitely waiting for that. Raees, which also stars Pakistani actor Mahira Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, is scheduled to release on January 25. The film will have box office clash with Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil.
