Actress Kareena Kapoor may not be a trained Kathak dancer, but she underwent vigorous training to be perfect for doing a mujra, which is an elaborate dance form developed in medieval era, in the upcoming movie Agent Vinod, says her beau Saif Ali Khan. The film, which is directed by Sriram Raghavan, will finally release on March 23.
Talking about Kareena Kapoor's role, Saif Ali Khan told PTI, "There is a very strong role for the girl's character. The presentation and treatment of it is something different. She does justice to the role and the role does justice to her. She is very good in the film."
The Bollywood actor-cum-producer added, "We have a classic 'mujra' which we haven't seen in a long time. It is again a decision that we took after a lot of thinking; should we do an item, should we get another big star and do something really hot. But most Hindi films today have hot songs. Hot in terms of outfits they are wearing and the presentation of the camera."
Saif Ali Khan further revealed, "So we thought we will go in a slightly different way and try and make it different in terms of music, expression. I believe Dinesh Vijan (co-producer) was also pushing for mujra than a raunchy kind of item song. We need to make our item a little different, so we did this."
