Mallika Sherawat is Tamil Munni

Mallika Sherawat bags the offer to dance to Munni badnam hui in the Tamil version

Mallika will be portraying the Tamil Munni. The actress will shake a leg along with Tamil actor, Silambarasan. The original track picturised on Malaika Arora Khan had become a rage last year with the release of Salman Khan’s Dabangg. The Tamil version of Dabangg is titled Osthi. Silambarasan will be portraying Salman’s character Chulbul Pandey in the film.

Sonu Sood is the one who really got lucky. In Dabangg, he got the opportunity to get close to Malaika and now he will shimmy with Mallika in Osthi. According to the buzz going around, the makers of Osthi had initially approached Katrina Kaif and Vidya Balan for the item number but they declined the offer due to unavailability of dates. The makers then contacted Mallika who agreed almost immediately. Sherawat who is known for her seductive item numbers is apparently charging a whooping amount for the Tamil version of Munni. The song is set to be shot in Hyderabad by the end of this month. The number which is being touted as the major highlight of the Tamil film is composed by music director Thaman. Wonder what Malaika thinks about Sherawat reprising her dance number? Will she be better than Malaika or not? Guess only time will tell!
