Watch: 'Munni' Malaika back as Anarkali!
By Hindustan Times
After her hit performance in Munni Badnaam Hui, Malaika Arora Khan has gone retro for her next item number Anarkali Disco Chali in Housefull 2. The song, choreographed by Farah Khan, will see Malaika in a see-through green and pink anarkali.
The song is not only sensuous but also looks like a modernised mujra, just like Kareena's Dil Mera Muft Ka from Agent Vinod. In the song, Malaika seduces a merry gang of Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Boman Irani and Mithun Chakravarty as she shows off her adaas and thumkas at a mehfil.
Choreographer Farah Khan says she and Malaika Arora were under a lot of pressure while shooting for the song Anarkali Disco Chali for Housefull 2 because so far their team has been hugely successful.
"I think Malaika and me have a track record. We have done three (hit) songs together and all three of them have been very successful, so there was a lot of pressure. The song Sajid and Nadiadwala had given was Anarkali Disco Chali, which was a different take for both of us," Farah had said at a promotional event for Housefull 2.
"I hope that this song keeps our track record because we have done Chhaiyya Chhaiyya, we have done Kaal Dhamaal and we have done Munni. So I hope this works well," Farah added.
Malaika, meanwhile, is pretty sure that the song will be a chartbuster. "Anarkali Disco Chali is superb. It’s sexier and more modern in its look and feel. Munni was desi and rustic,” Malaika told HT City.
Talking about the USP of the song, she says, “Sajid-Wajid have given excellent music and Farah has choreographed it really well. It has the entire male star cast of the film in it.”
Slated for April 5 release, Housefull 2 stars 12 actors - Akshay Kumar, Shreyas Talpade, John Abraham, Riteish Deshmukh, Mithun Chakraborty, Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Boman Irani, Zarine Khan, Asin Thottumkal, Shazahn Padamsee and Jacqueline Fernandez.
