Will Katrina Kaif’s ‘Ishaqzaade’ item number be better than ‘Sheila ki jawani’?

We asked this during Bodyguard and we ask it again. Can Kat outdo herself?

When Katrina Kaif shimmied to Sheila ki jawani, all she was thinking about was outdoing Malaika Arora Khan’s Munni badnaam hui. We are sure even she didn’t think that she’ll end up setting the bar so high, she too won’t be able to reach it again. That’s what happened with her item number in Bodyguard. She just didn’t sizzle in her much-awaited appearance the way she had done in Tees Maar Khan. Surely, that hasn’t put you off the idea of Kat doing more item numbers, we hope? ‘Cause the lovely lady has offered to do an item number in Arjun Kapoor’s debut film, Ishaqzaade. Wondering why? You see, Kat thinks of Arjun as her brother. The two became close with Arjun was dating Salman’s sister Arpita and Katrina was seeing Salman. Arjun later broke up with Arpita, but his friendship with Katrina continues till date. Whenever Katrina needs help, she would call Arjun as her own brother is in the UK. So when Arjun signed Yash Raj Films’ Ishaqzaade as his debut film, Katrina realised she wanted to return his favours and do an item number in his film. What remains to be seen is whether Katrina can prove herself as a hot item girl once again, after Bodyguard. She had made a lot of effort for Sheila ki jawani – from a stringent fitness regime that included gymming for long hours to giving up on her favourite chocolates. It paid off and Katrina’s Sheila ki jawani was much applauded. She faded again with her small appearance in Bodyguard‘s title track, but anyone who has watched Mere Brother Ki Dulhan will see that Katrina has definitely improved her dancing skills. Ishaqzaade could just be the film that will put Katrina back on the top of the item girl charts – even with stiff competition from newbie item girl, Chitrangda Singh in Joker.
