Item numbers in any movie may or may not be the requirement of the script but usually becomes a major talking point of the film. With varied diversions, dance forms, exotic locations and huge sets, something sets apart each item number in its own way. Sandeep Kulkarni’s Dombivli Return will add uniqueness to the list of item numbers we have seen so far. Yes, it’s the first item song of Bollywood that is shot on a yacht.
And of course there are tales to tell from the shooting location. The requirement of the song was to be shot in the night and getting such permissions with a huge crew was a big hassle. Sandeep recalls the fact that on the second day, they had to halt their shoots midway. There was major water turbulence with the yacht being stuck in a water whirlpool making it extremely difficult to shoot. It was also very dangerous and the cast and crew were quite panicked with the way the shoot was progressing. However, no one was hurt and the song was completed. The team is happy for the song to have come out well. The item song has been performed by renowned actress Pooja Kasekar who’s a popular actress down South.
Sandeep, who starred in Hindi films like Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi and Traffic Signal, is set to make his debut in Bollywood as a producer with the sociology-psychological thriller Dombivli Return.
