Rani Mukerji Performs Item Number for Housefull 2
For the first time in her career, Bengali beauty Rani Mukherji will be participating in a risqué dance sequence for Housefull 2. Mukherji has always been careful about preserving her good girl image, but now it seems she’s gearing up for some matkas and jhatkas.
As a trained Odissi dancer, Mukerji is expected to execute a breathtaking performance. When approached by the media about her career shift, Rani said, “as of now, this is hearsay, and I’d like to leave it at that. I have not done an item number in my career, but I’m open to it.” She added, “doing it totally depends on the song being presented, and if it excites me. I love dancing, and I think certain special songs have a lot of energy.”
There’s some speculation on whether Mukherji’s dance number will be choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant, who is a close personal friend that has already worked with the star on films like Bunty Aur Babli and Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic
Mukherji was recently in the news after being chosen as the recipient of the Dadasaheb Phalke award for her performance in No One Killed Jessica. She stated, “I’m happy that people have loved my film and work. I have always let my work do the talking, and I guess I have proved to my critics that I’m not over. The past three years were challenging, because I didn’t have box office success behind me. People forget the blood and sweat that you put in for years, so I’m very happy to get this prestigious award.”
Whether it’s career or dance, Mukherji seems to have all the right moves. It’s a safe bet that all eyes will be on her in the Housefull sequel.
