Even as speculations are rife about actress Vidya Balan"s image in
her very first item number, the crew members of the upcoming movie
Ferrari Ki Sawaari say that the aim of the song is not to
be sexy and draw the attention of the crowd. Instead they have gone
for a more 'aesthetic" look.
Vidya will be performing a Lavani number – a cocktail of matkas
and jhatkas – which has recently been made popular by Katrina
Kaif"s performance in 'Chikni Chameli'. The makers of the song are
insistent that this Item Number will be different from the item
number of Agneepath, with the oomph factor being
downplayed by the aesthetics of Vidya"s dance.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra and debut director Rajesh Mapuskar tried nine
different looks before zeroing in on the Lavani number. Vidya will
be rehearsing extensively for three weeks for the song. The
director feels no threat from 'Chikni Chameli' and instead says
“Katrina's dance is inspiring us to do better." So after Vidya"s
oomph in The Dirty Picture, it is time to see if she can
get her 'Oo La La..." effect for her first item number.
