Bollywood bombshell Mallika Sherawat isn’t new to Tamil fans and Kollywood. The slim and svelte actress was seen in films like Maniratnam’s Guru and then in a more substantial role in Kamal Haasan’s magnum opus Dasavatharam. Sexy Sherawat is all set to increase the pulse rate of Tamil youths with her latest ‘item number’(Kalasala) in actor Simbu’s upcoming film Osthe.
Osthe is the Tamil remake of the Bollywood super-hit film Dabbangg which starred Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha in lead roles. Simbu reprises Salman’s role in the Tamil version while debutant Richa Gangopadhyaya essays Sonakshi’s role. Hottie Malaika Arora-Khan’s ‘item number’ Munni Badnaam Hui was a blockbuster hit in the film and contributed in no small measure to the film’s success at the box-office.
Mallika has opined that Simbu’s ‘dancing style’ was amazing. She has danced with Simbu in Osthe for the ‘item number’ equivalent to the one by Malaika in the Hindi version. The song was shot some time back. Commenting on her experience of shooting with Simbu, Mallika says that she was taken aback by the dancing prowess and the style displayed by Simbu in the song sequence.
Known as a great dancer herself, Mallika says “I was amazed at Simbu’s dancing skills. He has plenty of energy and style which go into his dance steps to make them likeable and enjoyable. To my knowledge, no other hero in the country can dance with as much ease as Simbu does. I’m sure the songs in the film would go on to become super-hits. I’d love to see more of Simbu’s dances in his earlier films as I’ve become a huge fan of his dancing,” concludes Mallika
