Raees will see Shah Rukh Khan essaying the character of a bootlegger - inspired by the life of Abdul Latif, a gangster from Gujarat. Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be seen as inspector Majmudar. Raees also features Sunny Leone in a special dance number - which is a contemporary take on Firoz Khan's iconic Laila O Laila number.
