Reports claim that the item song is a dance track and shall be featured in the #Film itself and will not be shown during end credits like the song Lungi Dance from Chennai Express was.

The set for the song is that of an old retro bar and the situation in the song is that the bar sells alcohol under the name of soft drinks. This is the bar when Sunny Leone is seen dancing. Raees is directed by Rahul Dholakia and is set in 1980s Gujarat. The movie is about Shah Rukh Khan’s character who is a bootlegger whose business is eventually raided and shut down by police officer played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

The item song will be huge and will be reportedly shot in a span of four days with 50 junior artists and 20 dancers. This song will be the first time where Sunny Leone will share the screen with Bollywood’s biggest star Shah Rukh Khan.  Sunny’s face off with a journalist in a rude interview resulted into a lot of support being showered on her for her calm , cool and composed replies to the rude questions thrown at her.
