With item numbers being all the range recently, we really shouldn’t be too surprised when yet another item number is due to hit our screens, but this time it’s the unlikely duo of Priyanka and John! We’ve seen them both shake and shimmy to Desi Girl, and in O Mama and now, the duo are all set to perform in a special item number for the Shootout at Lokandwala prequel, Shootout at Wadala (SAW). This will be Priyanka’s first official item number, although she has made several special appearances in songs such as ‘Sabse Alag’ (Alag), ‘Deewangi Deewangi’ (Om Shanti Om) and ‘You Get Me Rockin’’ & ‘Reeling’ (Billu).
The pair is reportedly going to be dancing along to the Amitabh-Rekha hit ‘Salaam-E-Ishq’ (Muqaddar Ka Sikandar) and if the source is anything to go by, that’s just what will happen! The source that is close to the sets of SAW revealed, “Don’t be surprised if the item number reminds you of Bachchan and Rekha’s yesteryear hit. In the song, John will also reprise the ‘Jumma Chumma’ song from Hum. The Jumma Chumma portion will have a different setting — a kotha (terrace/floor) and not a dockyard.”
The source further adds, “Sanjay Gupta and Ekta Kapoor are keeping things under wraps. They haven’t decided on the choreographer yet. The number will merge mujra with tapori dance, like Bachchan’s moves in Hum. We will also see traces of ‘Apni Toh Jaise Taise’ from Laawaris.” “Before agreeing to do the song, Priyanka watched the film and was impressed by it.” Sanjay, Ekta, Priyanka and John were not available to comment.
So, we guess we’ll have to wait and see for the mujra/tapori number, but until then keep on checking back here for more news on your favourite stars!
