"I don't see songs as bad or weird. When I was growing up, I didn't know what an item song was," said the 35-year-old actress, who recently made it to the BBC's list of Most Influential Women Of 2016.
Sunny feels extremely proud to be associated with a film featuring Shah Rukh Khan and told IANS, "For me, it's like a dream come true. I am so excited about this song and I was waiting for this song to come out. Working with Shah Rukh was a great experience. A lot of work went into the song, so I am damn excited."
Speaking about her dance number in Raees, Sunny said to IANS, "I feel that this particular song has an important part to play in taking the film's story forward. I don't understand what the term item number means anyway. From the beginning, Bollywood films have had some of the most amazing songs and people look forward to that."
Raees marks the debut of Pakistani actress Mahira Khan and also features Nawazuddin Siddiqui in a pivotal role. The plot of the film is set in Gujarat and Shah Rukh plays Raees, a liquor baron. The film is directed by Rahul Dholakia and is jointly produced by Excel Entertainment and Red Chillies Entertainment.
Raees is all set to hit the theatres on January 25 along with Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil.
