When the Raees trailer was released earlier this month, we saw a brief glimpse of Sunny Leone’s scintillating dance number from the film — ‘Laila O Laila’. We got a sense of the thumping beats of this reprise of the classic hit, and also the colourful sequence that has been choreographed keeping Sunny at its very centre.
However, the song itself has not been shared with fans so far.
What we do have, is a small ‘first look’ — which Sunny has posted on her social media account. In it, we see Sunny in her Laila costume — a blue lehenga-choli, hair worn in waves, maang-teeka and a waist-belt accessorising the ‘look’.
While Sunny captioned her photo with a succinct: “Proud to be part of ‘Laila Main Laila’ (in) Raees… the journey has just begun”, Shah Rukh Khan and Raees director Rahul Dholakia were quick to re-tweet her post. “Absolutely awesome,” tweeted SRK. “Ram Sampath and the ebullient Sunny Leone are bringing back a blast from the past.”
