Kareena Kapoor follows in Katrina Kaif’s footsteps

Katrina Kaif’s rustic Maharashtrian moves in Chikni Chameli from Agneepath have become a trendsetter of sorts. While Vidya Balan recently shot a folk number for Ferarri Ki Sawari, Kareena is all set to do the lavani style item song in Heroine

Vidya Balan’s item song in Ferrari Ki Sewari is yet to be out, but we hear that The Dirty Picture actor has created quite an impression dancing Maharastrian style in a red hot traditional nine-yard sari. And stepping into the same shoes is Kareena Kapoor who will be raising temperatures with her ethnic dance number in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine. We must say that Kat has been quite instrumental in setting the ball rolling. Chikni Chameli’s success and Katrina’s Marathi porgi avatar in the item song seem to have influenced the dance numbers that Vidya and Kareena are now grooving to. Also, filmmakers and lyricists are getting more and more creative with the names of their song. Just when you thought Sheila Ki Jawaani and Badnam Munni were fascinating item gal sobriquets, you had to hear words like Jalebi bai, Raziya, Chammak Challo and Chikni Chameli. Now, Kareena’s Heroine item number is titled Halkat Jawani. We hear that the honchos of the film are extremely busy defending their title against people who are already pointing fingers at the obscenity of lyrics. The filmmakers have been trying hard to prove that it’s not exactly an expletive and a mere Mumbaiya slang.

Now any publicity is good publicity and we really hope the song is as successful for Kareena as Chikni Chameli was for Katrina, considering the Kapoor babe is known to be quite good at holding grudges!
