Vidya Balan’s first item song in Ferrari Ki Sawaari has been making a lot of news ever since it was announced. Her item number theme is the Marathi form Lavani, which has been recently made popular by Katrina Kaif’s ‘Chikni Chameli’ act in Agneepath. But with Katrina’s number being a huge hit, the makers are consciously trying to make Vidya’s item song a little hatke. A source from the production team of the film says, “After trying almost nine different looks, Vidya Balan, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and director Rajesh Mapuskar chose the Lavani form. However everyone is extremely conscious that this would be more aesthetic and less sexy Lavani. More importantly authenticity towards the dance form will be maintained”. Director Rajesh Mapuskar confirms, “Finally we have short-listed Lavani and are looking forward to the item song. Vidya Balan is extremely excited and would be rehearsing extensively for three weeks for the song”. Ask him about Katrina’s item-song being a competition and he smiles, “Katrina’s dance is inspiring us to do better”. Vidya Balan would take about three weeks to rehearse and get the finer nuances of the dance form correct. Lavani is a combination of traditional song and dance and is noted for its powerful rhythm and erotic sentiment. It is very popular in Maharashtra and southern Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka and also Tamil Nadu.
