Mumbai: Actor-director Pooja Bhatt is all set to give a new twist to item songs in her next "Cabaret", which she plans to shoot in 3D.

"There is so much `hoo haa` about item songs, so it would be fun to redo the item numbers... I also feel that the genre of item number has been over used and abused. I want to show the heartland of India`s cabaret like it`s never been seen. I really want to do a spin on that," she told IANS.

"I might shoot `Cabaret` in 3D. `Cabaret` is a musical where there is a cabaret dancer and a man (Randeep Hooda) who comes from the crime world... These two worlds collide and that`s the kind of the act that we have planned," she added.

"Cabaret", according to Pooja, will go on the floors next year before "Jism 3".

"`Cabaret` is something that I will start shooting first. I feel there needs to be a gap between `Jism 2` and `Jism 3` - people need to forget the first part to get into the next one," she said.

Pooja, who will direct the film, denied any similarity between her film and "Chandni Bar" saying: "`Cabaret` is going to be a visual treat and it`s going to be spectacular. That is something that people now expect from my movie."

Her father Mahesh Bhatt and writer Shagufta are working on "Cabaret" and Pooja informed that "Bhatt saheb is my thinking cap. As long as his thinking cap is on, I am going to shamelessly use that. Shagufta will be involved as well because of her background. She has been in Dubai. She has danced in groups and sung. I would like her to be involved in some way or the other, which will give a certain authenticity (to the film)".
