Malaika Arora to do item number in Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Pataaaka’


The ‘Chaiiya Chaiiiya’ girl Malaika Arora will shake her legs in Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Pataaka’. She will groove to the item song, ‘Hello Hello’, crooned by Rekha Bhardwaj and penned by Gulzar. Vishal Bhardwaj composed the music.

Vishal has a record of delivering chartbuster item songs. In the past, the makers delivered hit item songs like Bipasha Basu’s Beedi Jalaile and Namak Ishq ka from Omkara.

The dance number will be choreographed by Ganesh Acharya and Malaika Arora will start shooting for the song in a week. Producer Ajay Kapoor credited Malaika for setting the trend of the “special songs”.

"Malaika started the trend of these special songs, so when we came up with this track for 'Pataakha', she was the first one we thought of casting. When I approached her for the song, she was very excited and immediately agreed. We are happy to have her on board and this song is tailor-made for her," producer Ajay Kapoor said in a statement.

'Pataakha' is based on famous short story by renowned writer Charan Singh Pathik. The film also stars Sunil Grover and Vijay Raaz and it will set to hit the big screens on September 28.
