Mumbai: Actress Shraddha Kapoor, known for her roles in "Aashiqui 2" and "Haider", will be seen as a glamorous item girl in Karan Johar's production venture "Ungli".
Directed by Rensil D'Silva, "Ungli" stars Emraan Hashmi and Kangana Ranaut in the lead.
"I don't know whether to call it an item song or a promotional song, but yes, it's a very different thing that I am doing," Shraddha, who will team up with Emraan in the song, told IANS.
"Karan offered me the song and said: 'You have never been seen like this before. It's a very glamorous song.' So all that excited me and I said yes to it. The moment I heard the song, I was all the more excited as it's such a catchy song," she further added.
Titled "Dance Basanti", the song choreographed by Bosco-Caesar will go on air Tuesday.
When asked does the song have any link to Hema Malini's Basanti from "Sholay", she said: "I guess, it's definitely a take from original Basanti. It's a modern day twist. I can't compare myself with Hemaji's Basanti. She is the original legendary Basanti."
