The makers of the movie had earlier planned to release the movie in July, 2016 but postponed the release to avoid clash with Salman Khan’s ‘Sultan’ which proved to be a major success at the box office. The song ‘Laila Main Laila’ from the movie featuring Sunny Leone has already become popular among the audience. Stay tuned to Bollywood Garam to catch a review of ‘Raees’.
