Why Kareena first rejected, then accepted item song

By HT

Fevicol, the number she performed with Salman Khan in Dabangg 2, was meant to be her career's last item song, but Kareena Kapoor has broken her no-item-song policy for the sake of friendship.

When her close friend Shabina Khan asked her to do an item song in Gabbar, which stars Akshay Kumar, Shruti Haasan, Prakash Raj and Sonu Sood, her immediate response was to say "no".

But Shabina, co-producer of Gabbar, requested Kareena to break her no-item policy.

When asked, Kareena said: "I did the item song in Gabbar for a friend. I couldn't say no to Shabina."

According to Kareena's friend, the actress was also tempted because it was the "Gabbar" producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali who supervised her look and presentation in the item song. And Bebo was very impressed by what SLB achieved with Priyanka Chopra's item song "Ram chahe leela chahe" in "Ram-leela".

Interestingly, Kareena also made a cameo appearance in Bhansali's production "Rowdy Rathod", which Shabina had co-produced. At that time, Kareena was all set to do Bhansali's directorial venture "Ram-leela".
