Sonakshi Sinha, who has been making sincere efforts to shrug off the desi girl tag, may get an opportunity to seriously glam up after all. After shaking a leg with Prabhudeva in the 'Govinda' song from OMG, the actress will make her second special appearance for Sajid Khan's HIMMATWALA in an introductory song. It is said that the song, 'Thank God It's Friday', has been 'inspired by the discos of the 80s', with reflective dance floors, mirrors and all things shiny." It will also feature 100 dancers and 400 extras. According to sources, the look and feel may just remind audiences of the 'Jawani Jaaneman' song from NAMAK HALAL, in which Parveen Babi dazzled in gold.
A source close to the development said, "Sajid has conceived of this lavish introductory song for which he wanted Sonakshi. She has a certain rustic image that she has been trying to break out of. Though she is proud of the roles she has done so far, this song seems like the perfect platform for her to attempt a makeover. Her costumes will be designed by Manish Malhotra."
Sonakshi will finally get to glam up for the 80s' inspired special song. Though Sajid-Wajid have scored the music for HIMMATWALA, this particular song has been composed by Sachin-Jigar and sung by Sunidhi Chauhan. Chinni Prakash has been roped in to choreograph the song.
The 80s-style song will also be Sajid Khan's little nod to his roots as he started off as a teen DJ at a club in Mumbai and is well versed with the vibes of that era. "The set is being constructed in a city studio and will be called Funky Town," added the source.
