It was reported last week that Malaika Arora has done a song titled MUNNI BADNAAM HUI for Salman Khan starrer DABANGG. Makers of the film insist that the song hasn't been forced into the narrative for the sake of it. There is a story running in parallel; while Malaika is dancing, there a police raid happening in the background. Her dancing companion in the song is Sonu Sood who is the main antagonist in the film. Since his character is required to have a funny touch, his dance moves too were devised on the same lines.
SONU SOOD and MALAIKA ARORA KHAN
Informs Sonu, 'Yes, I do feature in the song and the brief was to just being natural. I had to come up with those funny non-conventional moves and everyone fell off their chairs once they saw the results.'
The song has been choreographed by Farah Khan and as per the source, she had a blast during its making. 'Farah has yet again done a brilliant job to ensure that this would be the biggest song of the year on its release', says a source attached to the film.
While Malaika is a pro when it comes to dance numbers, as evidenced in many of her performances like 'Honth Rasile' (WELCOME), 'Kaal Dhamaal' (KAAL) and 'Chaiyya Chaiyya' (DIL SE), for Sonu Sood it was a relatively new experience as he hadn't quite let his hair down in his films in the past.
'I have danced a little in my films like EK VIVAH AISA BHI and DHOONDTE REH JAAOGE but still I was itching to do something totally 'dhamaal' and commercial', he says, 'I got to do that in 'Munni Badnaam Hui' and the incentive was to shake a leg with Malaika. I totally freaked out on the song and Farah too gave me a free hand to do my own bit.'
Directed by first timer Abhinav Kashyap, DABANGG marks the debut of Sonakshi Sinha as the leading lady. The film releases all over on 10th September.
