Eeks! Look what I found!

Rakhi SawantI dubbed a film song composed by Adnan Sami some months ago, and heard in the passing that it was for a Vikram Bhatt film called “1920”. I presumed then that I was asked to dub possibly because I had started sounding like I was from the 1920s! But then a few days ago, people started asking me about the song I had sung for Rakhi Sawant! I must confess that I had no idea the song would be turned into an item number featuring Bomb Sawant. Its ironical that I should find the following post on a blog called Life is Funny Baby! Rakhi Sawant’s item bombs!

Item Girl Rakhi Sawant does it again

They say that “A rose by any other name remains a Rose”. Likewise, Bollywood’s hot item girl: Rakhi Sawant, by any other name (Dramebaaz, Nautanki, Drama Queen etc.) remains “The Rakhi Sawant” by all means.

After having made news (and still continuing to do so) with her item number in Rakesh Roshan’s Krazzy 4, where she takes on the likes of none other than SRK and Hrithik (who also have an item number each in the film), this ‘bindaas’ girl has been roped in for yet another item number in the Vikram Bhatt’s horror flick 1920, which is being produced by Surendra Sharma of ASA Films Ltd. The film stars newcomers Rajneesh Duggal and Adah Sharma. The song is called “Bichhua” and the track has been sung by Shubha Mudgal to Adnan Sami’s music.

Speaking about the song, Rakhi thanked God (assumingly ‘Jesus’ and ‘Ganpati’) for her Krazzy 4’s song and Rakesh Roshan, that she got a chance to work in 1920. She also added that 1920 is a dark thriller with her as the only colorful thing in it.

The song’s costume designer Reza Shariffi says, “Rakhi’s look in the song is that of a typical Rajasthani, which is sensually Indianised. And that it’s for the first time that Rakhi has worn a totally traditional garment with the 1920’s feel.”

Frankly speaking, when it comes to presume the audience’s (specially the frontbenchers) reaction to ‘Bichhua’… all that we can say is that, be it ‘1920’ or 2008, one thing is for sure that “Boys will be Boys”. What you say Rakhi?
