Waiting to see Sunny Leone in Raees? All of you would be left with just one complaint? Why is there not more of Sunny in the film! The sizzling actress is fast making a name for herself with special numbers, which add that extra commercial zing to movies and Raees will only emphasis her importance in this arena. Dancing to the tunes of the iconic ‘Laila Main Laila’ made immortal by one of India’s earliest sex symbols Zeenat Aman, Sunny lends the new version, her own stylish tadka.
The song would be released in a few days but indianexpress.com got an exclusive preview of the song and we are here to tell you what to expect from the number. Get ready for a ride back to the ’80s with everything that the decade stood for.
Dressed in a sexy midriff revealing chania choli, Sunny looks captivating enough to the average male gaze. The beauty begins her dance surrounded by a bevy of background dancers as she grooves sensually to ‘Laila Main Laila’. The step that catches attention is when she moves sideways and gets her hands to touch her back giving us a slight throwback of Aishwarya Rai’s ‘Kajra Re’.
The song which has been remixed by Ram Sampath is groovy although the earthy ’80s flavour of Qurbaani has been done away with.
The real high point in the song arrives when King Khan walks in with his bodybuilder like gait. Dressed in black kurta and sporting his trending glasses, Raees takes his seat catching Sunny’s attention. And long before you can blink, Sunny tries to charm the Badshah of romance. One can see the intense passion as SRK too serenades her but ever so slightly. The mood is nixed by gunshots and SRK firing away bullets. We didn’t certainly want any gun action in the midst of a SRK-Sunny item number.
Sunny said that for her, being part of Shah Rukh Khan’s film was a dream come true. One of course felt more could have been done in terms of SRK and Sunny shaking a leg together. Perhaps one would get to see more in the film.
