Actress Sunny Leone, who will be seen performing on a special dance number in Shah Rukh Khan's Raees said that she does not understand literally understand the meaning of an 'item number'. Sunny will recreate the magic with her dance on the hit song of the Eighties Laila Main Laila from the film Qurbani, featuring Zeenat Aman. The actress, who has earlier performed on hit dance numbers like Laila Teri Le Legi from Shootout At Wadala and Pink Lips from Hate Story 2 told news agency IANS that as a child, she remembers enjoying all the songs and she personally doesn't feel there's "anything wrong with them."
"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."
