Pakistan to watch 'Raees' sans Sunny Leone song

Karachi, July 18 (ANI): 'Raees' has not only Shah Rukh Khan, but also some other reasons to pull the audience and that is Sunny Leone's sizzling number. And now, it looks like Pakistan won't get the chance to enjoy it.

According to a report, the film producers have decided to release 'Raees' in Pakistan, but without Sunny's item number, the Dawn reported.

She is said to have danced with the 'Dilwale' actor on a faster version of the '80s classic 'Laila O Laila' in the sequence.

According to source, the makers feel that the 35-year-old actress' sequence "may be a little risque for the Pakistani audience."

"Raees has a deep Pakistan connection. The film's leading lady Mahira Khan is from Pakistan and the protagonist is a Muslim businessman," source added.

However, Sunny's item number was a late addition to the script to add some extra masala to the film.

Speaking about it, the source further said, "Everyone from Shah Rukh, to director Rahul Dholakia and producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani felt that the film needed that sizzling number, that tadka. And that's how Sunny Leone came into the picture."

'Raees,' which also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, will apparently be released in January, next year.

Set in 1980s Gujarat, the film narrates the story the bootlegger Raees Khan, played by SRK, whose business is highly challenged and eventually thwarted by a police officer, played by Nawaz.

According to SRK, though the movie is almost ready, he has still not given his last shot for it. (ANI)
