Director Sajid Khan is over the moon because Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has agreed to perform an item number for upcoming release, Houseful starring Akshay Kumar and Deepika Padukone.
Penciled in as a promotional track for the film, Ash has already allotted four days for the shooting of the song. Sources reveal, “Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan spoke to Ash about the song, which will be the promotional track of the film. It however, remains to be seen if the song will be a part of the film or will it be just a promotional song. All the actors of the film – Akshay, Deepika, Arjun, Ritesh, Jiah and Lara will be part of the song, and it will be shot in a grand scale with over 500 extras and about 200 dancers on a huge set which will be installed at Filmcity. Ash will shoot for the song after she finishes her schedule for Action Replay.”
Khan had initially approached Kareena for the song but she was unable to commit due to conflicting dates with the remake of Hollywood film Stepmom. This song will be Aishwarya’s third item song after ‘Ishq Kamina’ for Karisma Kapoor starrer Shakti and ‘Kajra Re’ for Bunty Aur Babli.
