Kareena is Salman’s new item girl for Dabangg 2
It’s official. Kareena Kapoor is Salman Khan’s new ‘it’ girl in Dabangg 2. After Salman personally requested the actress to do the item number, she couldn’t have refused.
A source close to the film told TOI, “How could she not? Both Lolo (Karisma Kapoor) and Bebo are very close to Salman. The sisters can never say no to him for anything.”
“All the top girls barring Kareena have done item songs in recent films. Kareena’s ChamakChallo in RA.One was not an item song since she was the leading lady of the film. After Munni Badnaam in Dabangg, Salman wanted the item song in the sequel to be bigger, better and more exclusive,” the source added.
With Kareena having finally said yes after some months of dilly-dallying over dates, efforts are on to get the right song for her in the sequel to Dabangg. We hear the original plan of a Marathi lavni song has been dropped in favour of a North Indian folk and western dance fusion that has never been attempted before. We also hear Salman will be dancing far more vigorously with Bebo than he did with Malaika ‘Munni’ Arora in Dabangg.
Farah Khan confirmed she will choreograph the item song in Dabangg 2 while music composers Sajid-Wajid let spill, “All we can tell you is we’re focusing on making it very different from everything that has come in the last two years after Munni Badnaam.”
