It’s common knowledge that Katrina Kaif is one of the most hardworking actresses,but her dedication while shooting the item number ‘Chikni Chameli’ for ‘Agneepath’,stunned everyone on the sets,including choreographer Ganesh Acharya. The song is a rustic number,so she had to dance bare-feet on the uneven ground. Halfway through the number,she injured the soles of her feet as the continuous pressure peeled off her skin. Despite everyone telling her to attend to her injuries she continued with the dance without a whimper, said Acharya.
Says a unit member,In this sequence,Hrithik visits Sanjay’s house and playing the host to perfection,Sanjay throws a party to welcome him. Katrina’s item number is part of the celebrations wherein she will enter as a drunk woman. She looks coyly at Hrithik who promptly jumps on the floor and is followed by Sanju.
The song,which was earlier supposed to be shot on a set designed as Sanjays house in Diu,could not be filmed there and instead was shot at Reliance Studios,located at Film City,Mumbai,where Dutts villa was recreated. The song with Kaif as a rural Maharashtrian girl was shot in 10 days. Directed by Karan Malhotra and produced by Karan Johar, Agneepath releases on January 26.
