Nathalia Kaur’s item song is the best: Ram Gopal Varma

The filmmaker says Dan dan is the best item song of his career, even better than Rangeela and Khallas

Ram Gopal Varma is all for item songs. The filmmaker says the item number Dan dan cheeni from his upcoming film Department is his best offering in the genre ever. “Over the years, since Company, I have not been giving enough focus on the songs because I am doing very different kind of films. After Rangeela and Khallas songs, I think Dan dan is the best item song [Watch song]. I think this is the best item song of my career,” said Varma. Dan dan features Indo-Brazilian model Nathalia Kaur.

Varma acknowledges how important item songs have become nowadays, and believes they are like a moving portfolio for actors. “I believe that item song is a moving portfolio. Many female actors feel that they will not have a career if they do an item song, but I think that is wrong. The way you do a layout of pictures for a magazine, item songs are moving portfolios,” said the 50-year-old. Department features Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Rana Daggubati. It will release May 18 this year.
