Will Kareena Kapoor’s ‘Halkat jawaani’ steal Chammak challo’s thunder?

Bebo’s sensual look for the sizzling song from Madhur Bhandarkar’s ambitious film Heroine is out

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar tweeted a photograph of Kareena Kapoor from the sets of his latest film. We have to say the Kapoor babe oozes oodles of oomph in the Manish Malhotra designed fuchsia sari, teeny-weeny black choli and a string-thin pallu. This is the Bebo’s hot and happening avatar for the massy dance number, Halkat jawaani, from Heroine.

While we love the fit and fab-looking Kapoor and can’t wait to see more of “the raunchiest number ever” (as Kareena puts it), we feel her get-up is a mishmash of Chammak challo and Katrina Kaif’s Chikni Chameli. Take a look at the photograph and tell us if you think so too!

The man who made Bebo dance to his moves in the song is Ganesh Acharya. He also choreographed Chikni Chameli, which got everyone going ga-ga over the shy Katrina’s raunchy thumkas. While Kareena’s recent chartbuster, Chammak challo was choreographed by Ganesh Hegde, Dil mera muft ka from Agent Vinod was directed by Saroj Khan. So we wonder if the decision to rope in Acharya, who is known for rowdy dance moves, was purely a professional one or if it’s the ambitious Heroine’s need to prove that she too can show-off her wild side on the big screen.

B-town’s item queen and Bebo’s dear friend, Malaika Arora Khan has already given a thumbs-up to Halkat jawaani. Malaika was shooting in a studio close to where Kareena was filming for the song, so the dancing diva dropped by to watch the Bollywood czarina show-off her latkas and jhatkas. And we hear she came out singing loud praises of Bebo.

However, we’d wait to hear or watch the actual song before giving out our final verdict. So far we think Halkat jawaani will give Chammak challo and Chikini Chameli a run for their money. What do you think?
