Item numbers are in vogue and Esha Gupta is the latest B-Town actress to join the list of item girls. The Jannat 2 actress will be performing an item song in Punit Malhotra’s film which is produced by Karan Johar and stars Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor.
Incidentally, Esha was roped in at the last minute and flew to Bangalore to shoot the song. “Punit had initially decided not to cast any actress for the song but at the nth hour, he changed his mind and decided to cast Esha as she was the first choice. It was sweet on Esha’s part to make herself available on such a short notice and film the song-dance sequences,” says a source from the unit.
Punit adds, “We wanted to shoot the entire song on Imran. However when things got going, choregrapher Remo D’Souza and I decided that since the song is so good we should have someone in the song.
The girl’s part was really nice and so we called Karan and spoke to him and then started chasing Esha and thankfully for us the dates fell is place. Manish Malhotra also came in and styled her. It is basically a club song where Imran is clubbing and Esha fits the bill perfectly.”
