Malaika Arora Khan will don her Munni avatar tonight, once again. The actor-dancer will be performing at the Bigg Boss 5 finale to a string of her popular numbers like Chaiyya Chaiyya and Kaal Dhamaal, toplined by her Dabangg (2010) chartbuster.
The 39-year-old actor has been rehearsing for the last couple of days with a bunch of dancers in the city. The performance was recorded yesterday at Karjat, and will be clubbed with a host of other acts for the finale night in the TV capsule.
Host Salman Khan and co-host Sanjay Dutt, who will also put together an act for the Colors show, are reportedly also going to be a part of Malaika’s dance routine.
“I will share the stage with Salman for sure. But if I tell you in what capacity it would be, I’ll be letting the cat out of the bag too soon. So, for now, I can just say that Munni will meet Chulbul again,” says Malaika, who is currently nursing a muscle pull.
“I’ve had to rehearse and put up my act with that pain. So, I’m really hoping people will like what they see because there will be costume changes and a lot of good music.”
The actor, who is putting her money on finalists Akashdeep Saigal and Siddharth Bhardwaj, admits that she’s watched the show in large chunks and has enjoyed the episodes featuring Sanjay and Salman. "I think their chemistry really worked. They were cool co-hosts and looked at ease in each other’s presence," says Malaika, whose son, Arhaan, is with her at Karjat.
"He’s very excited. He loves to see me dance and I love to have him around when I’m dancing because it just ups my energy levels," she beams. "I don’t know about Arbaaz yet, but my son would love to see Munni and Chulbul together on stage. He just loves Salman and vice versa."
