Directed by Rahul Dholakia, Raees will release on January 25 and also marks the debut of Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, who plays Raees Alam's love interest.

Laila Main Laila is the latest in several remixes this year, three of them releasing in the last two months. Shah Rukh Khan's previous film Dear Zindagi featured a recreation of Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le from Sridevi's film Sadma. SRK'S co-star Alia Bhatt also recently revealed her own version of the song. Hrithik Roshan's Kaabil, which releases with Raees, boasts a remix of Saara Zamana from Amitabh Bachchan's film Yaaraana. Haseeno Ka Deewana, as the new song is titled, features actress Urvashi Rautela. The third reworking of an old song is OK Jaanu's The Humma Song, a remix of Bombay's Humma Humma. Sunny Leone's Laila seems to have received the best reviews on Twitter of the four songs.

Raees, which co-stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, releases on January 25, the same day as Hrithik's Kaabil.
