We learnt a few weeks ago that Sunny Leone had been roped in for a cameo in his upcoming flick, Raees; she’ll be grooving to the iconic ’80s track ‘Laila O Laila’ during her brief appearance,
Talking to Indian Express, she revealed how much she had longed to share screen space with the King of B-Town:
“Working with Shah Rukh was unbelievable, it was a dream come true. When you wish for something every single day and then you get a chance, just the offer to work with somebody like him, it was a very proud moment for me.”
It was very emotional for me. I was like ‘I have make up on, control your emotions’. I was constantly saying, ‘Oh God! My first shot with him, thank you!’
The usually cool, confident Leone says she would act like a total “shy dork” in front of Khan.
You admire them, look upto them and then they’re in front of you and you just don’t know what to say, shares the actress.
The first time I walked out when I saw him on set, my hair was rolled up. I walked upto him and said, ‘Thank you so much for having me here’ and then went back to the dressing room, looked myself in the mirror and said, ‘Oh my God Sunny, that’s how you met him?’ My embarrassing moments just keep stacking.
Sunny will wear a white, sequinned gown and feather headgear in the song and will try to woo SRK’s character, the bootlegger Raees Khan.
Raees is slated for release on Eid this year.
