Apart from the strong star cast, the film also has an extra attraction. Shah Rukh will be seen shaking a leg with Sunny Leone in an item number in "Raees." While fans are eagerly waiting for "Raees" to hit the screens, another much-awaited movie "Sultan," starring Salman Khan, is also slated to be released around the same time. Both the movies are expected to be released on Eid this year.
