Move over Chikni Chameli, Chikni Kamar is arriving soon. Close on the heels of Katrina Kaif's item number, Sonakshi Sinha is all geared up to set the screen ablaze with her dance moves in her first ever item song in the upcoming movie Rowdy Rathore.
The actress will be rehearsing for the song over the next few days, before heading to Hampi - where she will shoot for the item number with her co-star Akshay Kumar.
Sonakshi prefers to call the track "a complete masaledaar song". The item number is choreographed by Vishnu with valuable inputs from her director and ace choreographer Prabhu Deva.
The actress revealed that she had started practicing for the song earlier, but had to take a break to shoot for two other films in between, one with Ajay Devgn in Patiala and another with Ranveer Singh in Kolkata. "Now that I'm back, I'm going to push myself and get the steps as perfectly as I can," she said.
Talking about the shooting location Hampi Sonakshi said, "It's a very picturesque location and given the kind of film it is, the idea is to make the song also look larger than life."
She was also quick to add that keeping in mind the weather, it's going to be very hot. "So Akshay and I will have a tough time," she said.
While we've heard of actresses working harder at the gym to get a toned body for their item songs, Sonakshi hasn't been given any such instruction by her director.
"Prabhu Deva and everyone else I'm working with, like me the way I am. Although I'm trying to fit in my gym sessions between my work schedules, I've not been banned from eating anything either," she said.
Will Sonakshi's Chikni Kamar steal all the oomph from Chikni Chameli? "No comments," replied Sonakshi.
