Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor is set to sizzle on the silver screen once again in a song from her upcoming film ‘Heroine’. The actress, known for burning up the screen in item numbers like Chamak Challo from Ra.One and Bebo from Don, claims that her latest item song Halkat Jawani is her raunchiest performance yet.
Kareena, who garnered significant media attention when she dropped to a size zero, is reported to have followed a stringent diet and workout regime to get the perfect body. The first look from the song has the Bollywood beauty showing off her curves in the first of her two items songs for the Madhur Bhandarkar film.
Sporting a Manish Malhotra look in a pink sari, a black choli and bindi, Kapoor looks every bit the ravishing beauty. “This is the raunchiest number I have ever done. There’s so much exposure,” Kareena told newspapers in India. “I have always done classy songs. This song has more mass appeal.”
The five-day shoot from Halkat Jawani was choreographed by contemporary Bollywood dance guru, Ganesh Acharya. The song has been scored by music directors Salim-Suleman with vocals by Sunidhi Chauhan.
During the shoot, Kareena received several visitors on the set, including former Miss World Priyanka Chopra, film maker Karan Johar and item queen Malaika Arora Khan.
‘Heroine’ follows the life of actress Mahi Arora, whose career is on the decline. The film also features actors Arjun Rampal, Randeep Hooda and Rakesh Bapat. The film, initially scheduled to release a week earlier, will now launch on September 21 to coincide with Kareena’s birthday. However, this also means that ‘Heroine’ will now compete with two other heavy weight women-centred films set to release the same weekend – Sridevi’s comeback film ‘English Vinglish’ and the Preity Zinta starrer ‘Ishkq in Paris’.
