Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan agreed to break her ‘no item song’ vow only for a friend.
Kareena who had done an item song called ‘Fevicol Se’ with Salman Khan in ‘Dabangg 2’ said, “I did the item song in Gabbar for a friend. I couldn’t say no to Shabina.”
Kareena Kapoor’s close friend said, “Kareena has done just 3-4 item songs in her career, and all for friends. After ‘Fevicol Se’ number in ‘Dabangg 2’, she was in no mood to get into the groove for an item number.”
Shabina Khan who is the co-producer of ‘Gabbar’ specially requested Kareena for the item song.
“Bebo was also tempted because it was the ‘Gabbar’. Producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali supervised her look and presentation in the item song. And Bebo was very impressed with what Sanjay did in Priyanka Chopra’s item song
‘Ram Chahe Leela Chahe’ in Ram Leela,”Kareena’s friend said.
Kareena had also made a cameo appearance in ‘Rowdy Rathore’.
Kareena’s item song in ‘Gabbar’ is a precursor to Kareena bagging the lead in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajiaro Mastani’.
