The actress is gearing up for her first item number for her forthcoming film with Akshay Kumar

Move over Chikni Chameli…Chikni Kamar is arriving soon. Close on the heels of Katrina Kaif’s item number, Sonakshi Sinha is all geared up to set the screen ablaze with her gyrations in her first ever item song.

The actress is rehearsing her sexy moves over the next few days, before heading to Hampi where she will shoot for it with Akshay Kumar for their forthcoming film. Sonakshi prefers to call the track — ‘a complete masaledaar song’ — choreographed by Vishnu with valuable inputs from her director and ace choreographer Prabhudeva. 

The actress reveals that she had started practicing her moves earlier, but had to take a break to shoot two films in between, one with Ajay Devgn in Patiala and another with Ranveer Singh in Kolkata. “Now that I’m back, I’m going to push myself and get the steps as perfectly as I can,” she enthuses, adding that the dance track has several complicated moves.

Camping at Hampi
Sonakshi explains the decision behind choosing Hampi as the shoot location, “It’s a very picturesque location and given the kind of film it is, the idea is to make the song also look larger than life.”
She’s also quick to add that keeping in mind the weather, it’s going to be very hot. “So Akshay and I will have a tough time,” she smiles.

No crazy workouts
While we’ve heard of actresses working harder at the gym to get a sexier body for their item songs, Sonakshi hasn’t been given any such instruction by her director. “Prabhudeva and everyone else I’m working with like me the way I am.

Although I'm trying to fit in my gym sessions between my work schedules, I’ve not been banned from eating anything either,” she enthuses. Will Sona’s Chikni Kamar steal all the oomph from Chikni Chameli? “No comments,” pat comes the actress’ reply.
