Raees: Sunny Leone offered Rs 3.5-4 cr to perform live on ‘Laila O Laila’


The New Year is around the corner and party organisers have already started making arrangements for the big day. Reportedly, a suburban hotel in Mumbai has got the sizzling Sunny Leone for a live performance of her latest item song ‘Laila O Laila’ from upcoming film ‘Raees’, and has offered her a whopping amount for the same.

The Shah Rukh Khan starrer film is still over a month away from hitting screens, but Sunny and her item number is already creating a buzz. The song is a remixed version of the classic track of the same name featuring the sultry Zeenat Aman from the 1980 film ‘Qurbani’. The recently released trailer of ‘Raees’ shows a glimpse of Sunny and the music of the popular number plays in the background.  

Item numbers, which are energetic and peppy, form an important part of any party and ‘Laila O Laila’ too has a huge potential to be played at New Year parties. And considering the popularity of the ‘Mastizaade’ actress as well as the song, the hotel has offered Sunny about Rs 3.5 to 4 crores, for performing on the song live for the audience.

Meanwhile, ‘Raees’ trailer has been very much appreciated by audience and had crossed 27 million views in just 24 hours on YouTube, bagging in the tag of one of the best trailers of 2016. Even veteran actress Shabana Azmi and filmmaker Karan Johar tweeted their appreciation about it.  

Also starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, the crime drama directed by Rahul Dholakia is set to release on January 25, 2017.
