MUMBAI, Nov. 1 -- Way back in 1994, Karisma Kapoor set temperatures soaring with her sultry moves in a red kurta and lungi in Raja Babu's hit song, 'Sarkai lo khatiya jada lage'. Eighteen years later, sister Kareena will repeat the moves with Salman Khan in Dabangg 2.
Although the filmmakers are tightlipped about the number, we've found out that in her item song, 'Fevicol', Bebo is likely to appear in a lungi dress similar to what Lolo (Karisma) wore. "Kareena will be wearing a similar dress, but this time it will be in black," says an insider close to Bebo.
When the idea first came up, Bebo was game for it since she is close to Karisma and adores her sense of style. "Kareena and her designer friend Manish Malhotra brainstormed and came up with the final dress design. Both Bebo and Karisma are excited about it.
Besides the colour, the only other major difference would be the length. Bebo, unlike Karisma, won't be wearing that long a lungi. It has been modified to suit today's times," adds the insider. Kareena, who married Saif Ali Khan recently, remained unavailable for a comment. Manish too couldn't be reached. But when contacted, Bebo's spokesperson said: "At this point, we can't divulge any details (about the song)."
As for the song, Kareena has already started rehearsing for it at Mehboob Studio in Bandra with choreographer-filmmaker Farah Khan and her team. "The song will be shot from November 5 onwards with Salman Khan," adds the insider.
