Mumbai: Chitrangada Singh, who is trying her hand at an item song for the first time in Akshay Kumar starrer `Joker`, says the catchy number is in the same league as `Sheila` and `Munni`.

The 35-year-old actress is the new B-town beauty to turn item girl with the song `Kaffirana` in the upcoming sci-fi film by Shirish Kunder.

"I had a great time doing the song. It is named `Kaffirana` and has this rustic Marathi feel to it. I have done my best in it and I hope people enjoy it.

"It has some catchy phrases which I am sure will become a trend setter. This song will be in the league of Munni and Chikni Chameli. Farah has done a fabulous job," said Chitrangada at the ongoing Wills India Fashion Week here.

The actress admitted when she started with `Hazaron Khwaishein Aisi` no one would have imagined her as a singing-dancing commercial movie heroine.

"I...am experimenting with roles and looks now and I think as an actor it is very important to do that. When I started people had never imagined me singing and dancing but I am enjoying every bit of it and that`s what keeps me excited."

Chitrangada walked the ramp for designer Kanika Saluja dressed in a royal blue gown with golden embroidery teamed with a golden headgear.

"Fashion to me is comfortable clothing. I am in awe of 60`s and 70`s design and it is coming back. I wear what I am confident in," she said.

"It feels great to walk the ramp for Kanika. I am wearing a blue gown and I feel like an Egyptian goddess. I like the bit of a drama in my dress." ...
