In a complete red sari, Vidya Balan sizzled on stage as she performed the item number for the audience. On public demand, she was asked to repeat the performance.
"I always had a dream to do a lavani
. But I thought lavani
is done only in Marathi films but I was amazed when I got a call from Chopra productions. I was more than happy to do this lavani
. I really drove my choreographer Standley nuts while filming this song," she said.
The actress claims she has not received any adverse comment for this song.
"I haven't come across any criticism yet for this song. I got a call from someone who said that I reminded them of some authentic lavani dancers. With all the respect I would not like to take their names. I am happy for myself," she said.
