'Delhi Belly' item number situational, not promotional: Aamir

By Dibyojyoti Baksi

Mumbai, June 30 (IANS) Superstar Aamir Khan, who is set to appear as an 'item boy' in the number "I hate you as I love you" in his production "Delhi Belly", makes it very clear that the song is an integral part of the story and not just a promotional gimmick.

"The item number was not done for the promotion of the film. It's there because the director and the writer felt that it needed to be included. The character of Disco Fighter was always in the script. Even when the first draft came, it had Disco Fighter," Aamir told IANS in an interview.

"But Disco Fighter had no scene. It was a character which appeared on the wall. Arup (Vir Das) in the film is a big fan of Disco Fighter
