New Delhi, Dec 12: Katrina Kaif's next item song Chikni Chameli is taken from a 2006 Marathi film, says a media report.
Music composers who made the original song, promise that the new one will be scorch the dance floors.
Chikni Chameli in Karan Johar's Agneepath, is actually a foot-tapping peppy Marathi dance number from a 2006 Marathi film Jatra featuring Bharat Jadav in the lead.
The original Marathi song Kombadi palali was composed by the brothers Atul and Ajay Gogavale and is still played at festive occasions.
While Ktrina refused to comment on the number, a source said, “ When Katrina heard the song she was blown away. She immediately started swaying to the rhythm. It's that catchy.”
The brief given to composers Atul- Ajay and choreographer Ganesh Acharya was simple. “‘ Make it more rocking than the original,” said the source.
Atul Gogavale says, “ Yes, Chikni chameli is a Hindi version of our Marathi song. We had to make the Hindi version even better.
Shreya Ghosal has sung it in her signature soft style. Though we are known for our lavani songs, Chikni chameli is not lavani number.”
After eight days of dancing under Ganesh Acharya's supervision, Katrina is unable move a limb, the report says.
Says a friend of the actress, “ She has taken three days leave to recover before she resumes shooting for Ek Tha Tiger. Compared the steps in Cheekni chameli Katrina's movements in Sheila jawani were child's play.”
