Videos reiterate fans going wild as they jump on their seats. They are also seen showering on-screen Sunny with money.
As Twitter is filled with viral videos like these, it appears audiences are going into a frenzy as soon as the song ‘Laila Main Laila’ comes on.
And it appears that many fans are going to see Raees for the song, not just going to see King Khan in action.
Producers planned to release ‘Laila Main Laila’ in January 2017. However, releasing the song in December allowed people to anticipate the movie and dance to the song at Christmas and New Year parties.
As Raees’ trailer also featured Sunny’s song, it propelled the song’s popularity even further.
‘Laila O Laila’ was originally performed by actress, model and beauty queen Zeenat Aman, in the movie Qurbani (1980). However, Sunny Leone’s revamped rendition takes on a whole new flavour, and fans seem to like it!
Casting Sunny Leone in an iconic dance number was proved very successful. As soon as the song was released, it was an instant hit on YouTube, garnering over 90 million views.
