Katrina Kaif who is enacting a very intense role of a politician in Prakash Jha’s ‘Rajneeti’ expressed her ardent desire to shake her legs in an item number. She does not want to be typecast as a serious actress and to break the stereotype, she wished to be an integral part of the song. But Prakash Jha is showing lack of interest in the idea.
A close source said, “No matter how serious his films are Prakash Jha usually makes it a point to have one much-talked about song. For ‘Rajneeti,’ he has a club mix hip-hop number composed by Pritam. Katrina, who is the film’s lead actress, has expressed a keen interest in being part of the song.”
“However, Jha feels that he should get another established actress for the song and has already spoken to some likely candidates. Katrina clearly doesn’t want to give up on her image as a commercial actress and wants to feature in the song as after the initial few scenes in ‘Rajneeti,’ she goes completely de-glam. Getting to dance to this masala number was perhaps her way of ensuring that her sexy image remains intact. But knowing Jha he will get some other actress for the item song.”
When enquired, Prakash Jha, the director, confirmed the news and said, “Yes, we have a club song which Katrina is extremely keen to do. But, I have yet to decide on several aspects of the song. Ranbir (Kapoor, lead actor of ‘Rajneeti’) is definitely not part of the song and I will soon finalise who will feature in the number.”
However, when Katrina Kaif was asked about her interest in the item number, she rubbishes the rumor.
