Katrina Kaif has wrapped up the shoot of her item song ‘Chikni Chameli’ in the movie ‘Agneepath’, the re-make of the old movie ‘Agneepath’. The actress shot 10 days for the song at FilmCity in Goregaon.
The actress hopes that this item song of hers becomes bigger than her ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’ track.
“I hope and pray it becomes bigger than any of the previous item songs. As actors, we love doing better than what’s been done in the past. I don’t think there’s anything wrong in expecting that,” she said to a leading daily.
“Now, I’m waiting to see the audience’s reaction. It’s a desi-rustic number. I’m keeping my fingers crossed,” she added.
The movie is being directed by debutant director Karan Malhotra and produced by Karan Johar. The movie stars Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles.
The actress dismissed the reports of a competition between her and the movie’s leading lady Priyanka Chopra.
“We’re all a team. Why would we compete with each other? Priyanka is as happy as Hrithik and Sanjay. And as a producer, Karan won’t allow this to happen. She won’t be overshadowed. In fact, it didn’t even come to my mind that this is also how my item song could be perceived,” she said.
Other than the item number Katrina Kaif has two big releases next year in form of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ with Salman Khan and an untitled film with Shah Rukh Khan. The movies are planned to release on occasions of Eid and Diwali respectively.
When asked if this was a conscious decision on her part, considering the success Kareena Kapoor has met with, with the release of her movies ‘Bodyguard’ and ‘Ra.One’ at time of Eid and Diwali, Katrina Kaif said that it wasn’t her who planned the release dates of her movies.
I don’t plan the release dates for my films. And this talk about competition really doesn’t matter. I don’t perceive things like that,” she said.
“There’s no competition with Kareena or with anyone else at the box-office. The only thing that matters is that my films should make money because there are a lot of people, including technicians and workers, whose incomes are at stake. Whether my films become bigger hits than anyone else’s or not, is irrelevant,” she added.
