“It’s not like this fell in her lap; she threw quite a fit for this item number which could have gone to another heroine. The item number in Joker, in which she is playing the female lead, has gone to Chitrangada Singh which she did not like one bit. She wanted this song to come to her, because she knows that one item number guarantees many more in future, along with stage shows and special events. She’s shed a lot of weight for this song in OMG. She needed to, in order to fit into her urban wardrobe!” said a source close to Sona.
Sonakshi was so gung-ho about her look that she did six photo-shoots in her costume after the shooting of the song. She has earlier confessed that she is fond of singing and dancing and enjoys every opportunity to perform. Though the actress could not shake her leg in Dabangg she made sure she did it this time.
Whether her ‘urban-desi’ avatar would succeed in wooing the audience remains to be seen.
