Malaika Arora to do an item number in ‘Pataakha’
MUMBAI: The makers of Vishal Bhardwaj’s Pataakha have roped in Malaika Arora for a sizzling dance number which promises to be all that Bipasha Basu’s ‘Beedi Jalaile’ and ‘Namak Ishq ka’ were.
The actress will be seen grooving to ‘Hello Hello,’ sung by Rekha Bhardwaj which is being penned by Gulzar. The music has been given by Vishal Bhardwaj and it has been choreographed by Ganesh Acharya.
The song will be filmed this week and rehearsals are on in the Mira Road Studio. Producer Ajay Kapoor says, “Malaika started the trend of these special songs, so when we came up with this track for Pataakha, she was the first one we thought of casting. When I approached her for the song, she was very excited and immediately agreed. We are happy to have her on board and this song is tailor-made for her.”
Vishal Bhardwaj’s Pataakha is a comedy-drama about two sisters, Badki and Chhutki and is based on an acclaimed short story by renowned writer Charan Singh Pathik. It stars Sanya Malhotra, Radhika Madan, Sunil Grover and Vijay Raaz. The film is slated for its release on September 28, 2018.
