Item song rage is on an upswing in Bollywood. If Munni and Sheila took the industry by storm last year, this year marks the debut of Pop Singer Jennifer Lopez’s cousin sister Caterina Lopez into tinseltown. Caterina is all set to join the ranks of item girls with a song in director Ankush Bhatt’s next ‘Bhindi Baazar Inc‘.
In an interview Caterina revealed “When they approached me for this sexy item number, I jumped up at it. And this gave me the perfect chance to come and work in Mumbai, which is the New York of India.”
And what are her thoughts about her namesake Katrina Kaif? ‘She is nice’, replied Caterina candidly further confessing to wanting to do more full-fledged Bollywood roles and her crush on baadshah Shahrukh Khan.
Apart from the item song, Catrina has a small pivotal role that of a bar dancer. Bhindi Bazaar Inc, starring Kay Kay Menon, Prashant Narayanan and Shilpa Shukla, is a movie about the story of gangs that reside in the infamous area of Mumbai. The movie is scheduled to release on February 25, 2011.
