Deepika Padukone to perform a sizzling number?: Katrina Kaif might be making waves with her latest sizzling number ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’ but its her circular segment rival Deepika Padukone who has channeled her to get the uncommon item song for Rohan Sippy's ‘Dum Maro Dum. ’
However, the makers were initially zeroing in on Katrina Kaif and even the names of Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra were doing the rounds. In fact, Deepika was never in the contention. But after the director received some astonishingly overwhelming response in favour of the ‘Break Ke Baad’ damsel, he was compelled to pull in the leggy Deepika.
Deepika thus even nudges past Bipasha who, herself, is known for her sauciness and raunchy oomph factor. Bipasha has been successful in the Omkara song ‘Bidi jalayi le’ but this time she loses it to Padukone.
Padukone has earlier done an item song in ‘Billu’ opposite Shahrukh Khan in ‘Love Mera hit hit’.
‘Dum Maro Dum’ stars Abhishek Bachchan, Rana Daggubatti and Bipasha Basu and is slated for a 22nd April release in 2011.
