“Raees is set in the ’80s and there was need of a song sequence. The makers unanimously selected “Laila O Laila” which perfectly fits with the dark, gangster theme and period. It was suggested to Shah Rukh and it was his idea to get Sunny on board. A lavish set is being created in Mumbai and rehearsals are on in full swing,” disclosed a source close to the makers of the film.
