While Priyanka Chopra, who was pretty much against item numbers at one point, is all set to shake a leg in Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout at Wadala, Kareena Kapoor seems hell-bent on giving PC some serious competition.
She has given her nod to Punit Malhotra for shaking her booty to not one, not two, not three, but four item numbers in her next film Gori Tera Gaon opposite Imran Khan. We can imagine KK feeling at the top of the world, just like a kid who brags about how she has more candies in her school bag than everybody else. But since PC has an ear for music, we hear the track Babli badmaash hai is personally chosen by her from a set of three songs.
She will also be paying tribute to yesteryear divas such as Zeenat Aman and Parveen Babi through the song. It seems the number is sanitised of all vulgar lyrics, double meanings, et al. Kareena hasn’t had the privilege to anything of that sort yet. If some day she releases a solo album, people may think of consulting her to pick a track.
What’s surprising is that PC, who was so not keen on entering the whole item number race, and Mrs Kareena Kapoor Khan, who had declared that she would henceforth keep a safe distance from anything that’s downright bold after marriage, are getting down to battle it out for the crown of the ultimate item queen with all confidence and vigour. Now that speaks volumes about their rivalry, no?
