Anees Bazmee gets 6 item girls for 1 dance number

Main Babli Tu Bunty, Beech Hamare 20-20‘….This is the line that inspired Anees Bazmee in Welcome Back to get seriously naughty thoughts. Originally intended to be shot on Huma Qureshi, Anees thought it’d make more sense to shoot the song with a group of dancers rather than just a single sizzling seductress.

The number was duly re-recorded and shot with 6 item girls this week.

Revealing details, Anees says, “We thought the song worked better with a group of dancers. I discussed it with my music composer Anu Malik who was all for it. We re-recorded and shot the number this week with six dancers. One of them is Sambhavana Seth. There is another girl from New Zealand and one more foreigner. Then there are three chorus dancers from my choreographer Ganesh Acharya’s team. The six girls have whipped up truly interesting dance storm.”

Anees dismisses the talk of Huma Qureshi’s exit from the item song. “I read that she asked for too much money. This is just trying to sensationalize a non-issue. The reason she couldn’t do the number was the non-availability of suitable dates. Instead we got six dancers who not only knew how to shake a leg but also had no date issues.”
