Mumbai: The new item boy in B-town, Taaha Shah, who will be seen gyrating to the latest `mutton` song in Y-Films` fresh offering `Luv Ka The End` says he did not have any apprehensions doing the dance number but felt slightly nervous.

Taaha will be seen in a `ghagra-choli` for the `mutton` item song giving a tought fight to Malaika Arora Khan and Katrina Kaif, who performed sizzling numbers `Munni Badnam
Hui` and `Sheila Ki Jawani` in their films recently.

"When I was asked to do this item song I had no apprehensions about the song...as I had no other option. I think while getting ready for the shot for the first time I was nervous but after that when I wore the costume..got into the whole feel. I was fine and impressed by myself," Taaha told reporters.

The lyrics of the song - `Mera Jism Jism Mera Badan Badan Main Hoon Taja Mutton Mutton..` have been penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya of `Emotional Atyachar` from `Dev D`.

When asked how the transition from man to woman was, Taaha said, "The item boy performance is a revolution. We are trying to do something different. We usually call girls chicks and babes, now with such a song girls will become bolder and call guys as `mutton`. It was a different experience all together for me. I think everyone will enjoy this."

Directed by Bumpy, `Luv Ka The End`, an anti-romantic-comedy, stars newbies Shraddha Kapoor and Taaha in lead roles. The film is the first production of Y-Films, a subsidiary of Yash Raj Films and will release on May 6.
