MUMBAI: Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone’s first item song in the Bollywood film Shootout at Wadala is finally out. The item song is keeping with her raunchy character and the Bollywood trend towards more sexualized songs.
As the song title `Laila Teri Le Legi’ suggests, the filmmakers have used the porn star to raise the bar on vulgarity in Bollywood. Though Sunny does not seem to be such a great dancer in the song, she throws all the suggestive hints to her men – John Abraham, Tushar Kapoor, etc.
But director Sanjay Gupta has said in an interview that this is not quintessentially an item song. “I think it’s derogatory to term a song an item number. ‘Laila’ is extremely crucial to the film and the twists and turns in the storyline. Back in the day, there used to be a dancer at the Congress House in south Mumbai. Sunny’s character is based on her,” Gupta says.
Sarnia-born Indo-Canadian porn star, whose family later moved to LA, says she is pleased with the item song.
“I had never thought I would be here and have a chance to do something like this… I must say it is a great song to dance to,’’ Sunny Leone said at the music launch of the film.
