Rani performs three dance forms in Aiyyaa
Our actresses are known to be taking up item numbers right, left and centre. The latest to join the race is Rani Mukherji, who has performed not one, but three item numbers in her forthcoming film Aiyyaa. One of them, incidentally, is a belly dance.
The three songs include a South Indian dance number Dreamum Wakeupm, a 'lavani' dance form and of course the belly dance. The over-the-top dance number is a fantasy song, a dream sequence between Rani and her south Indian fantasy man Surya, played by South actor Prithviraj.
Says Rani about her three songs, “Dreamum Wakeupm' is a south Indian song. Thanks to my hottie hero Surya, she (my character) goes into his world and that is what her imagination is," Rani said.
For her second item song in the film, Rani had to learn belly dancing. “Sachin Kundalkar (director) wanted to talk about a woman's fantasy and how she lusts for a man. Our choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant added her touch to this song by asking me to learn belly dance for it," Rani remarks.
Talking about the lavani number, Rani avers, "Sachin wanted a lavani number as my character Meenakshi Deshmukh is a Marathi girl. So Sachin wanted that introduction in a lavani number and hence that song. Vaibhavi researched a lot on lavani steps and gave her own touch.”
Produced by Anurag Kashyap and Viacom 18, Aiyyaa releases on 12 October (2012).
