Item songs or the so called item numbers are soon becoming an important part of bollywood movies and therefore most directors are now keen on adding some good item songs to their movies that would provide them with additional publicity and also attract more audiences in the movie halls. In the last few years, there is a new trend of item songs like Sheila Ki Jawani and Munni Badnaam. Katrina has been in the forefront of this race after her Sheila Ki Jawani from Tees Maar Khan became a nationwide hit.
However, soon after that Katrina was seen moving her body in an item song in Bodyguard along with Salman Khan. Katrina and Salman together did the title track for Bodyguard, but now Katrina has taken a lead and she has bagged another item song under her belt. This time it is for Dharma Production’s Agneepath which is expected to be release somewhere in January 2012. The decision was taken by the cast and crew of Agneepath and everybody decided that Katrina will be a good choice for the song which is very groovy and it would require some really flexible body that can adjust to such dancing steps.
This will be for the very first time that Sanjay Dutt will be seen onscreen with Katrina. Sanjay Dutt is playing Kancha Cheena in the movie which is a negative role. However, Sanjay Dutt is really nervous about the song especially because he is a non-dancer actor and doing some hardcore dance steps with Katrina will require a lot of rehearsing. Sanjay has already shaved off his head again for the item number and plus he has also managed to take two weeks off to learn dancing steps that can help him to match up with the groovy moves that Katrina will do onscreen. The music for this item song will be composed by Ajay Atul who recently composed music for Singham. They have revealed that they will come up with a fresh new item song which will be inspired from Jhumma Chumma from Hum which is another chartbuster song from Amitabh’s Hum movie.
