Bipasha Basu to do an item song in Murder 2?

According to the latest buzz in the tinsel town the Bong bombshell Bipasha Basu has been selected to perform an item number in Murder 2 which is the sequel of the original Murder which starred Mallika Sherawat, Emraan Hashmi and Ashmit Patel. Now according to the reports Mallika Sherawat was originally supposed to do the item number but she demanded too high a price at which the producers balked.

And what was Mallika’s loss turned in to profit for Bipasha Basu as she might do the number due to her desire to work with the Bhatt camp who launched her in Jism. According to her spokes person, ” Right now, she has no dates for the itemnumber’s shoot. However, Bipasha would love to work with the Bhatts again, and yes…if the shoot works out during the time she is available, she will most definitely be doing a dance number in Murder 2.”

Mallika already has two item songs lined for release in the coming months as she looks to reclaim the title of item song queen from the  likes of Katrina Kaif and Malaika Arora. But it seems that her price has put people off.
