A couple of days ago, news broke out that Sunny Leone will be seen sizzling on the big screen with Shah Rukh Khan in his upcoming film, Raees.

Reports suggested that Sunny Leone had been roped in for a special dance in the Shah Rukh Khan film which is set in the 80s.

Now, a Mumbai Mirror report has confirmed that the actress is indeed a part of Raees and is expected to shoot for the special song with SRK in April. The song, which is a modern-day rendition of the Feroz Khan - Zeenat Aman classic Laila O Laila, will be shot over a period of two days in Mumbai.

A lavish set is being created in Mumbai and rehearsals are on in full swing."
