Sonakshi Sinha, who has done her second item number in an upcoming film, says she hopes to become "queen of item songs" in Bollywood. Sonakshi has done a special number 'Thank God Its Friday' in director Sajid Khan's Himmatwala, which is a disco song of the 80s.
Sonakshi has done an item number in Akshay Kumar's Oh My God, alongside Prabhu Deva, which was released last year. When she was asked if she is looking forward to be the next item queen, Sonakshi said that she hopes to become one and she like dancing and music. If some good song comes her way she will do it. She also said that both songs in the movies OMG and Himmatwala are different.
The latest retro song reminds yesteryear actresses Parveen Babi and Sridevi. Sonakshi said, "We have been inspired by what Parveen Babi wore in Shaan and Sridevi's looks in Chaalbaaz."
Sonakshi is also seen doing Michael Jackson's famous moonwalk step in the retro song. She said that as a child she used to see Michael Jackson's videos and was imitating him. "I did not have to do much preparation for the song. I have seen these kind of disco songs. Also people say I have this old world charm...so I have used that," she added.
Sajid said, "For us Sonakshi was the first and only choice for the song. If she had not agreed we would not have done it." Sonakshi had also performed live on a special disco song at a lounge in suburban Bandra. Even Sajid shook his leg on the song. Though the film's music is being done by Sajid-Wajid, the music for this particular song, which is sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, has been reportedly composed by Sachin-Jigar.
Himmatwala stars Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah in the lead roles. The movie will hit the cinema screens on March 29.
