Katrina Kaif's recent item number in Tees Mar Khan has become a big hit and everyone in Aamir's team wanted Katrina to do the item number for the film. In an interview, she herself had evinced interest in doing an item song for Aamir. But when she was contacted for the song, the actress reportedly turned down the offer citing date issues.
Later, the makers of Delhi Belly reportedly approached the another Bollywood star Deepika Padukone, whose item song in Dum Maar Dum has also become successful. She also could not make it to the movie because she was shooting for Desi Boyz in London.
Sources say that the filmmakers are in talks for Malaika Arora-Khan, who is known for Munni tune. The actress is eager to work in the project, but she has not been contacted by the film bosses. However, the song is ready, but the hunt for item girl is delaying the shooting.
