Kareena, Deepika at loggerheads
Says a source, “Recently, Dippy has been telling anyone willing to hear that she was the original choice for the Chamak Challo dance number in Ra.One and that producer Shah Rukh Khan had her in mind for the item number. And that Bebo threw a fit when she heard of it. Kapoor is upset and feels Dippy is only doing this to gain mileage from the Dum Maaro Dum title track.”
A source close to Bebo insists, “Chamak Challo is not even an item number. Kareena is the film’s heroine and the song is part of the story so how can Deepika even be considered?
These rumours amuse Bebo. DP may be spreading this rumour as her DMD track isn’t the hit it was touted to be.”
Ra.One director Anubhav Sinha says, “We never approached Deepika for an item song. Chamak Challo is an integral part of the story. The song will be catchy, glamorous and sexy but it’s not an item song, which are usually random additions that don’t need a story.”
