Shraddha Kapoor is seen as a glamorous item girl in Karan Johar's Ungli in song titled Basanti

Actress Shraddha Kapoor, known for her roles in Aashiqui 2 and Haider, is seen as a glamorous item girl in Karan Johar's production venture Ungli. Directed by Rensil D'Silva, Ungli stars Emraan Hashmi and Kangana Ranaut in the lead.

"I don't know whether to call it an item song or a promotional song, but yes, it's a very different thing that I am doing," Shraddha, who has teamed up with Emraan in the song, told IANS.

"Karan (Johar) offered me the song and said: 'You have never been seen like this before. It's a very glamorous song.' So all that excited me and I said yes to it. The moment I heard the song, I was all the more excited as it's such a catchy song," she further added.

Titled Dance Basanti, the song choreographed by Bosco-Caesar went on air today.

When asked if the song had any link with Hema Malini's character Basanti from the yesteryear film Sholay, she said, "I guess, it's definitely a take from original Basanti. It's a modern day twist. I can't compare myself with Hemaji's Basanti. She is the original legendary Basanti."
