After an inebriated Shah Rukh Khan allowed a sexy Kareena Kapoor Khan to seduce him in the recreated version of Zeenat Aman's 'Yeh Mera Dil' ('Don 2'), the actor is set to be enticed yet again in a rehashed version of another Zeenat track, 'Laila O Laila', in his upcoming crime-thriller, 'Raees'. 

Sunny Leone, who will be grooving to the iconic track, admits that a comparison with the original is inevitable. "But, this song is more an ode to the original, than a remake. I hope I have done justice to it," she says. The actress confesses to have been nervous while working with SRK and says, "I have lost count of the number of times my mother and I have cried watching 'Kal Ho Na Ho' (2003). Now, sharing the same frame with him was like a dream come true."

It is, perhaps, this skittishness that had the otherwise graceful actress falter with her moves. "I would often forget the steps, but doing the song was like getting a golden ticket to Disneyland," she laughs, further adding that SRK had informed her that they were looking forward to working with her for a while. "We engaged in casual conversations about life and family. While his younger son, AbRam, would run around the set all day, the older one, Aryan, hopped in a few times."

Sunny confesses sharing screen space with SRK will change the course of her career: "If I have reached a stage where I am working with SRK, then a lot of younger kids, who believe in hard work and perseverance, can achieve it too. Working with him can be a turning point; it can alter my career."
