After contemplating over it for a long time now, Priyanka Chopra has finally given a nod to an item number, the first in her career, for Sanjay Gupta’s gangster flick, ‘Shootout At Wadala’. The item song has been titled Babli Badmaash Hai.
Priyanka Chopra gave a green signal to the item track only after reviewing it completely. She made sure that the dance moves are not very sexually provoking and also the lyrics of the track are not too profane. Reportedly, the song is very vintage style, scored by Anu Malik and sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, and will be used for promoting the film.
If sources are to be believed, PeeCee was given three numbers to choose from, off which she picked ‘Babli Badmaash Hai’. Buzz is, the song will see PeeCee doff a hat to Zeenat Aman in Aap Jaisa Koi and Parveen Babi in Jeete Hain Shaan Se.
“When PeeCee heard the song, she thought it was RD Burman meeting Feroz Khan,” said the source. “Glamour yes, but no vulgarity,” added the source. Sanjay Gupta says the song will have a retro feel. “We are still working on the styling. There’s lot of detailing that’s required,” he said.
The song will be shot over three days in Goregaon and Gupta will be personally involved in the shoot.
