36 Nakhrewali song: Is Shibani Dandekar a sizzling ‘item’ girl?

The IPL host turns sexy babe for a new Marathi film – in a fast-paced special song choreographed by Saroj Khan…

We drooled over Shibani Dandekar’s funky personality, her enviable style sense and her verbal fluency when she played host for the Indian Premiere League (IPL). This Marathi mulgi was imported from Australia to add that much needed eye-candy to the popular cricketing extravaganza last year. While her sister Anushka Dandekar – yes, the chirpy MTV video jockey – has been visible in showbiz in India, seen in the Mahesh Manjrekar-directed Viruddh starring Amitabh Bachchan, John Abraham and Sharmila Tagore, we wondered if little sister Shibani had disappeared after her stint with IPL and a brief appearance on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5.

But now the beauty is making her mark in a radically different avatar. Clad in a kashti saree and a colourful choli, and then a ghagra outfit, Shibani shows off her lavni-inspired item dance moves in 36 Nakhrewali from the new Marathi production Sangharsh. While 36 Nakhrewali is not an explosive track, we were surprised to see Shibani shaking a leg to the tune. Honestly speaking, we liked her better as IPL anchor. As an item girl, she does not impress us hugely. A song of this nature demands a voluptuous babe with spicy dance moves and the lady is too slim and western for it, wethinks. Remember how Vidya Balan pulled off Mala jau de from Ferrari Ki Sawaari , seductive in all her roundness?

We liked the lanky girl’s energy though, even if we expected more nakhra from Shibani. Take a look at the video and tell us if you find Miss Dandekar sizzling enough…
