After 2 blockbusters namely Main Hoon Naa and Om Shanti Om, Farah Khan’s next directorial venture Tees Maar Khan is one of the most awaited films of the year. After all, the film stars the hit jodi of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif.
One of the USPs of the film is the item number ‘Sheela Ki Jawani‘ filmed on Katrina Kaif. Kats, as everyone knows by now, plays an item girl in the film and Farah wanted nothing but the best for this dance number. Speaking about this special song, Farah says, “Sheela Ki Jawani is a special item number with a never before seen feel to it. There are six different set-ups in the song and Katrina will be seen in 6 different looks. In the last sequence of the song, I wanted a rustic bar setting where you’ll see Katrina surrounded by men holding beer-mugs and splashing water on her something similar to the famous ‘Jumma Chumma‘ song in Hum. Another part of the song is a tribute the musical Chicago. The song itself is a mix of Bhojpuri meets Bob Fosse if you can imagine what I am saying.”
Elaborating more on what promises to be the ‘baap’ of all item numbers, Farah says, “What I wanted for this song was to keep Katrina’ s look rustic and have a backdrop like that of a Broadway musical. So it’s both raunchy yet classy and believe me, Katrina has never done anything like this before. She has really worked hard to get into shape for this number and the results have to be seen to be believed.”
From the looks of it, expect the temperatures to soar high this winter courtesy ‘Sheela Ki Jawani‘!
