After Malaika Arora Khan's 'Munni
Badnaam Hui' and Katrina Kaif's 'Sheila Ki Jawaani' took
audiences by storm this year, newbie Sonakshi Sinha will be
seen in an item song in Shirish Kunder's upcoming film
"We have one item song in the film. Sonakshi and another
top actress will be doing the song together. We are yet to
finalise the other actress. These days, I believe, item songs
are a great marketing tool," Shirish told PTI.
Directed by Shirish, 'Joker' is a fantasy-adventure film
made in 3D format in Hindi, and stars Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi,
Shreyas Talpade and Minnisha Lamba.
Sonakshi, who debuted playing village belle 'Rajjo'
opposite Salman Khan in 'Dabangg', will be seen dancing to the
tune of ace choreographer Farah Khan for a raunchy item song.
"Farah would choreograph the song... it will be shot in
Mumbai," Shirish said.
"Both 'Munni Badnaam' and 'Sheila Ki Jawani' had set the
box office on fire. We hope to break the record and do
something much better. We intend to take a new approach for
item song this time," Shirish said.
Music maestro AR Rahman's nephew, GV Prakash, will
compose the music for 'Joker'. This will be his debut in Hindi
films, the director said.
Though shooting is yet to start, Shirish is confident
about his team for 'Joker'.
"I think I have got the best possible cast and crew. I
have put together a fantastic team for my film. I think I have
won half the battle.... The other half is execution. Hope I
will manage to pull it off," Shirish said.
Though his directorial debut 'Jaan-E-Mann' failed badly
at the box office, Shirish is looking forward to the
"I am directing a film after a very long time.
'Jaan-E-Mann' was shot five years back. The wait has to be
worth it. I have to do something spectacular," Shirish said.
'Joker' is being jointly produced by Kunder and Farah's
Three's Company and Akshay Kumar's Hari Om Entertainment.
