First Rani caricatured Rakhi Sawant’s diction in Saawariya. Now she’s set to dance an item number with her. Both the girls are busy preparing for their dance number together in Yash Raj Film’s Dil Bole Hadippa!.
The item number, titled ‘Bhangra bistar’ is sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Alisha Chinai. These singers are considered by YRF as their lucky mascots for giving them ‘Dhoom machale’ in Dhoom and ‘Kajrare’ in Bunty Aur Babli. Our source says, “Yash Raj’s two biggest hits in recent times have been the Dhoom films and Bunty Aur Babli. So the banner insisted on them singing ‘Bhangra bistar’ as they want to make the song a sure-fire hit.” The song is a rumbustious Punjabi track composed by Pritam.
Apparently, Rani spent weeks getting into shape before they began rehearsing for the song. She took it as a challenge to match steps with Bollywood’s original item girl. Our source adds, “As Rani is dressed like a man for the major part of the film, the idea was to get Rani to do that one sizzling feminine number to balance the gender bender. Just like Saira Banu did a ‘Thoda sa thehro’ in Victoria No. 203 where as was dressed as man, Rani has ‘Bhangra Bistar’ in Dil Bole Hadippa!.”
