Munni to become Anarkali for an item song!
Mumbai: Munni is all set to sizzle in yet another peppy item song. Yes! We are talking of Malaika Arora Khan who won all our hearts in the ‘Dabanng’ item song ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’. She will be soon seen dancing and raving the big screen for an item number in ‘Housefull 2’.
This song is called Anarkali Disco Chali in the Akshay Kumar-Jacqueline Fernandez starrer Housefull 2.
As reported by a daily, Malaika will don six different outfits ranging from desi to western. She said, "It`s been over a year since Munni happened and everyone has been asking me about my next time song. When Sajid (Khan) offered me the Anarkali song, I fell in love with it and said yes." What did she like about the song? Pat comes the reply, "I liked the fact that Anarkali is completely different from Munni, from the clothes to the music. What`s similar is the choreographer - Farah Khan. She and I have a superb track record and we intend to keep it going strong."
Like Munni had the whole country raving, it is sure got to be of nothing less but of the same genre. Munni topped charts for weeks and was the most hit song of the year 2010, choreographed by Farah Khan.
On being approached by media, Farah Khan said, "Malaika looks like a million bucks in this new song. She`s a mixture of Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce. I try not to repeat the steps or ambience of the songs and like to create something new and different each time." Director Sajid Khan reveals that Malaika also has a cameo in the film, apart from the item number, "I am superstitious about Malaika. She has been part of my first film Heyy Babyy. She also did a cameo in Housefull, so I had to repeat her in my third film."
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala explains why Munni was chosen for the song. "Malaika`s a part of Sajid Khan`s trilogy and a lucky mascot for us. She always adds a touch of class and grace to any item song and who better than Munni to become Anarkali?"
