Sonakshi Sinha seems straight out of the eighties in this dress for her item number in Himmatwala
Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who has
done her second special dance number in an upcoming film, says
she hopes to become "queen of item songs" in Bollywood.
Sonakshi has done a special number in director Sajid
Khan's film Himmatwala. The song, Thank God Its Friday, is
a take on the disco culture of the 80's.
The Dabangg actor did an item number alongside noted
choreographer Prabhu Deva in Akshay Kumar's film Oh My God
which released last year.
Asked if she is looking to become the next item queen,
Sonakshi said, "I hope to become one. I like dancing and
music. If some good song comes my way I will do it. Both songs
in Oh My God and Himmatwala are different."
The latest song reminds people of actresses Parveen
Babi and Sridevi. "We have been inspired by what Parveen Babi
wore in Shaan and Sridevi's looks in Chaalbaaz," she said.
Sonakshi is also seen doing Michael Jackson's famous
moonwalk step in the retro song. "As a child, I used to see
Michael Jackson's videos...I used to imitate 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.
"For us Sonakashi was the first and only choice for
the song. If she had not agreed we would not have done it,"
Sonakshi performed live on a special disco song at a
lounge in suburban Bandra tonight. Even Sajid shook his leg on
Though the film's music is being done by Sajid-Wajid,
the music for this particular song, sung by Sunidhi Chauhan,
has been reportedly composed by Sachin-Jigar.
Himmatwala, featuring Ajay Devgan and Tamannaah in
the lead roles, will hit cinema screens on March 29.
