Mumbai: Actress Chitrangada Singh will be seen in a different avatar in Shirish Kunder’s ‘Joker’. The actress will do her first item number in the film which stars Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha and Shreyas Talpade.

Sonakshi’s item dance is already being touted as one of the hottest numbers of 2012 (that’s when the film releases) and now sources close to the film state that Chitrangada’s dance number will be raunchy and pleasantly surprise her fans.

The song will be choreographed by Shrish’s wife and ace choreographer Farah Khan and the song is titled ‘Kaafirana’. The dusky beauty will be sizzling on this number while the film’s lead actors, Akshay and Sonakshi will be part of the audience watching her act.

Speaking to a daily, Director Shirish Kunder said, "Kaafirana is essentially a rustic song with a raunchy flavour to it. We wanted a fresh yet sensual face, and not the usual, go-to item girls of today. Also, Chitrangda hasn`t done an item song before, so the novelty value is very high. She was exactly what we were looking for.”
