Will Katrina be Munni of Kollywood?
Katrina Kaif has been offered the famed Munni Badnaam Hui item number of Dabangg in the Tamil remake of the film. Will Kat go from Sheila to Munni for Kollywood?Updated: Aug 18, 2011 19:54 IST
Katrina Kaif is riding the highest wave of her career in Bollywood right now. With 3 big banner films in her kitty, the actor is making some heads turn on southern shores as well.
Now, Kaif has been offered the popular item number from the Salman Khan hit Dabangg in the Tamil remake of the film.
"There are reports that Katrina has agreed to do the item number and if everything falls into place, then the song will be shot sometime next month," a source revealed to Mail Today.
There are no confirmations from Katrina's camp, while she recently went on record to rubbish reports about an item number with Sanjay Dutt in Karan Johar's remake of Agneepath.
The Tamil version of Dabangg, to be directed by Dharani, will be titled Osthi. The lead roles will be played by Simbu and Richa Gangopadhyay.
The film that hit the floors in May is scheduled for an Eid release, sometime in the end of August.
Some tabloid reports said that the item number was first offered to south siren Nayanthara. But she couldn't commit as she was busy with her impending wedding to Prabhu Deva.
Director Dharani, who wanted to make the item number the highlight of the film, decided to import some Bollywood beauty to add that chutzpah.
Wait and watch this space to see whether Sheila travels to south India to transform in to Munni...
