"There are certain people who can change ur life in entertainment& Mr @iamsrk can!!Thank u!"
Baby Doll Sunny Leone is let’s say, very ecstatic, about getting the chance to be the item girl in the song Laila O Laila with the Badshah, Shahrukh Khan, in his eagerly awaited film, Raees.
Leone will be performing a remake of Laila O Laila the very popular hit from the 1980s Bollywood film Qurbani which starred Zeenat Aman and Amjad Khan aka Gabbar Singh from Sholay.
No doubt the track will be a huge hit for Sunny Leone like her other smashes from her own films. It will be great to see what kind of sexy and raunchy avatar she will be presented as in the track because the original was a sensual club track for its time, with the track title Laila O Laila being coined different ways!
Leon took to Twitter with a bursting response of thanks to Rahul Dholakia the director and SRK, for be given the chance to perform and share screen space with King Khan of Bollywood.

The tweet gives us a snippet preview of the forthcoming song in which Sunny Leone totally looks the part.
Shahrukh being Shahrukh, responded in his usual open armed way and tweeted:

This is most likely a dream come true for the ex-porn star working hard to being accepted by Bollywood in her new guise, as an actress.
Recently Sunny appeared in a video for the BBC as part of the 100 Women 2016 series, talking about her how she decided to appear in Big Boss and the struggles and the acceptance in Bollywood and India.
She says in the BBC video:
“I was completely wrong to think that people would not accept me. There were groups of people that didn’t and I respect them for it, that’s their choice and that’s their opinion. But there a lot more people liking me. Or there a lot more people that respected me. Or were happy watching me on television than not.”
When asked if she is judged about her past, she replies:
“Absolutely, that’s what I created. That’s the image I created. So, I’m okay with it.”
“I just think people don’t understand that sometimes they say things. And it is so rude! And it’s so inappropriate!”
“Unfortunately, a lot of different women have to deal with this and I’ve had to deal with this in my own way.”
After doing ‘Laila O Laila’ in Raees, it’s likely Sunny Leone will be looking to perform with the other Khan’s in Bollywood. So, could it be Salman Khan next or even Aamir Khan? Time will tell.
