The grapevine is abuzz that Madhuri Dixit will perform yet another item number, this time with Ranveer Singh in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Ram Leela”. But sources reveal there are no such plans and no space in the movie for an item song.
“We don’t know where these stories of an item song with Madhuri and Ranveer Singh started. The truth is, there is no truth to these rumours,” said the source.
Madhuri was recently seen gyrating to “Ghagra” with Ranbir Kapoor in “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”, but if the source is to be believed, there’s no scope of such a number in “Ram Leela”.
“Firstly, there is no situation for an item song in ‘Ram Leela’. Secondly, why would Sanjay sir repeat the Madhuri-younger hero format in an item song? This is nothing but someone’s wishful thinking.
“Sanjay sir will call Madhuri to dance for his film only when there’s a situation to better what he did in the ‘Maar daala’ and ‘Kahe chede mohe’ dance numbers in ‘Devdas’,” the source added.
However, it will be Deepika Padukone, the lead actress of “Ram Leela” who will be perform a dazzling garba dance number in the movie.
