Rani Mukerji the next item girl in B-town?


Rani Mukerji the next item girl in B-townWhen was the last time you saw Rani as an item girl? Probably decades ago in Aamir Khan’s Mann. But now the babe is keen on refreshing our collective memory with a little jhatka-matka thing in her new movie, Aiyya

Rani Mukerji is all set to bounce back from her sabbatical. From what we hear the actor has nabbed some meaty roles that will mark her comeback to the big screen. But do you know what the best part is?

The ‘Aati kya khandala’ babe will step into the zingy shoes of an item girl in Sachin Kundalka’s Aiyya. As per the buzz, the Mukerji girl is playing a demure Marathi mulgi in the movie and will undergo a makeover after she falls in love. That’s when she’ll get a chance to flaunt her jhatkas and a few matkas as well. Hmmm, that’s interesting.

And doesn’t that look like a real life transition too? Rani for a while now has essayed roles that have been understated and devoid of over-the-top oomph. But we guess the dusky beauty with a hoarse…oops…husky voice wants to surprise us with her new avatar after that long sabbatical.

The song in question is being choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant, Ms M’s best buddy, and we hope she has some jhakaas steps in store for our darling queen-bee who might not be well-versed with the complicated moves of an item song after this long hiatus. And we wouldn’t want her to stick out like a sore thumb amidst the reigning item queens like Katrina Kaif, Vidya Balan, Malaika Arora Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Right? Fingers crossed!
