Shah Rukh and Hrithik - B-town's new item boys


By Joginder Tuteja Bollywood Hungama News Network

In a unique experiment which is certainly one of it's kind, two top actors would be dancing to the tunes of the same song, though presented in different versions. The film in question is Krazzy 4 and the men who would be shaking their legs are Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan.

Confirms Vishal Dadlani (of Vishal-Shekhar fame), who is fast becoming one of the preferred singers in Bollywood, "The track has been composed in two versions with one each reserved for Shah Rukh and Hrithik. I have sung both the versions."

While one version of the song would be appearing within the film, another would appear as a part of end credits roll. Adds Vishal, "The song is a mix of hip-hop and rock and should do really well with the younger generation."

Talking about how the song fell in his lap, Vishal reveals, "I am a big fan of Rajesh Roshan brand of music. How can one ever forget that he is the man behind 'Dil Kya Kare Jab Kisi Se Kisi Ko Pyaar Ho Jaaye' from Julie? The song stays on to be one of my all time favorites. This is why when Rakesh Roshan gave me a call and said that he wanted me to sing for a Rajesh Roshan composition, I was game for it."

For Shah Rukh Khan, this would be his yet another item song special appearance in recent times after 'Mast Kalandar' (Heyy Babyy) and 'Kaal Dhamaal' (Kaal). He also had a few 'blink and you would miss' shots reserved for him in Arjun Rampal's I See You where he held the guitar for the song 'Subah Subah'. On the other hand, for Hrithik, this would be his first ever experience as an item boy, though just like Shah Rukh Khan, he too had made a fleeting appearance in 'Subah Subah'.

Directed by debutant, Jaideep Sen, Krazzy 4 is a comedy which revolves around four crazy men Arshad Warsi, Irrfan Khan, Rajpal Yadav and Suresh Menon. Juhi Chawla is the doctor in charge for treating them all. Apart from Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan in guest appearances, the film also stars Dia Mirza, Rajat Kapoor, Zakir Hussain, Sunil Pal, Makrand Deshpande and Mukesh Rishi. Incidentally, Rakhi Sawant also makes a special appearance in the movie for an item song.

Item boys in recent times:

- Sanjay Dutt in to be released thriller Woodstock Villa which marks the debut of Sikandar Kher. Sanjay Dutt recently shot for this music video by the band 'Aryan'.

- Tusshar Kapoor in Rohit Shetty directed Sunday. He dances to Raghav Sachar's tune of 'Manzar'.

- Abhishek Bachchan in Ram Gopal Varma directed Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag. He had accompanied his dad in Ganesh Hegde's 'Mehbooba Mehbooba'.

- Amitabh Bachchan in Shaad Ali's Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. Coupled with his role as a 'sutradhar', he made stars half his age pale in comparison as he joined the item boys' gang.
