Though the makers of the film and the actors in it are tight-lipped about the story, the fact remains that Priyanka Chopra was originally invited to do a traditional mujra in Agent Vinod. Apparently it was Kareena who put her foot down and insisted on doing the ‘item number’ herself instead of letting her long time rival steal any of the thunder
