BizAsia reported last week that Sunny Leone would be featuring in ‘Raees’ in an item song which is inspired by a song from ‘Qurbani’ (1980). Producer Ritesh Sidhwani has confirmed that Leone has started shooting for the song.
“So we have Laila Sunny Leone, Shah Rukh Khan and ‘Baniya Ka Dimaag’ Rahul Dholakia in Raees,” confirmed Sidhwani, according to Mumbai Mirror.
Instructor Prashant Sawant has been training Leone for the song. He reveals, “She has been training, wearing a compression gear T-shirt that weighs eight pounds. Her regime also includes functional TRX. She makes it a point to work out with me every day before heading out for dance rehearsals”.
He further comments, “No carbs after breakfast for a week. She is eating chicken, fish salads through the day but everything is below 1000 calories. Sunny is a determined girl so getting her into perfect shape hasn’t been difficult at all”. Leone has been on a high protein diet to achieve her look for the song.
‘Raees’ is set for an Eid release and stars Shah Rukh Khan, Mahira Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
