Mumbai, Sept. 18 -- Last year, Abhay Deol was in the news for turning into an item boy for Sudhir Mishra's Tera Kya Hoga Johnny, a yet-torelease movie. But he insists that 'Sheher ki rani...' was not an 'item song' as hyped, but a passing special appearance he'd done for buddy Soha Ali Khan. "I meet Soha at a club, we dance. I go to get a drink, when I return she's gone. How can that be an item song?" he retorts.
Buzz is that Abhay's miffed because a song in Shanghai, 'Bharat mata ki jai ...', involving a 500-strong mob, is being mob, is being picturised on co-star Emraan Hashmi. He laughs off the rumours: "I know Dibakar (director Dibakar Banerjee) is shooting an item number but I don't know if it will be with Emraan. My first item number will be for Navdeep's (director Navdeep Singh) zom-com."
