Mumbai, Mar 8 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is at her career best. Once targeted for her fuller figure and dancing – the lady is now staring in her very first item number in Ferrari Ki Sawaari.
The item number ‘Mala Jau De’ is an authentic lavani song and stars Balan in traditional Maharashtrian attire.
After three weeks of extensive rehearsals with a troupe from Kolhapur, Vidya Balan said she is pleased with the results.
Says an insider, “Although green is the traditional lavani color, Rajesh Mapuskar chose red for Vidya to showcase her as a flame among men.”
The insider adds, “Everyone including Vidhu Vinod Chopra (producer) and Rajesh Mapuskar (director) think the song is filmed to perfection. But Vidya and Rajesh want to hold the first screening of the song for authentic dancers to gauge their reactions.”
Mapuskar confirmed the development saying, “Yes, we want the song to look absolutely traditional. We are in talks with some lavani dancers regarding the first screening.”
