The legend of Malaika Arora Khan’s ‘Munni’

The queen of item numbers says that her Munni badnaam hui item song from Dabangg can’t be recreated

Malaika Arora Khan, who is Bollywood’s quintessential item queen, is currently busy working on the pre-production of her home-production and hubby Arbaaz Khan’s directorial debut, Dabangg 2. Speaking to, Arbaaz had said that though other things in the Dabangg sequel might change but Robinhood Pandey (Salman Khan) and Munni will remain untouched. So, it came as a surprise to us when we heard that Kareena Kapoor will be filling in for Malla in the sequel. There is no doubt that Bebo is the Chammak Challo girl but can she be a fitting replacement for Munni, we wondered. In a recent interview, Malaika said, It’s such an iconic song. You can’t recreate Munni. We would much rather create something newer and better. Having said that, Kareena would be fantastic as another Munni, but the creative call will be taken by Arbaaz after he finishes recording the new song for Dabangg 2.” Wethinks Bebo will have to work really hard to meet the expectations people have from Munni and her badnaami. Tell us if you agree!
