It is rumoured strongly in Kollywood that Bollywood’s reigning queen Katrina Kaif might be making her debut in Kollywood with a sizzling ‘item number’ in actor Simbu’s upcoming film ‘Osthi’. The film is the remake of the Bollywood super-hit ‘Dabbang’, which had Katrina’s ex-flame and superstar Salman Khan in the lead. Simbu’s heroine in the film would be the debutant heroine Richa Gangopadhyaya.
The film is being directed by Dharani, known for his fast-paced action flicks such as ‘Dhil’, ‘Dhool’ and ‘Ghilli’. Dharani is directing Simbu, who plays a tough cop in the film, for the first time in ‘Osthi’. For dancing in an ‘item number’ in the film, Simbu sent feelers to his ex-flame, actress Nayantara, and reportedly offered her Re.1 crore for the song. Nayan, who broke up with Simbu a few years back, is said to have politely turned down the offer.
After approaching several other top actresses in Kollywood in vain, Simbu is said to have spoken to Bollywood’s ‘No.1’ actress Katrina Kaif. The starlet, who has had a high percentage of hits than any other star in the past 5-6 years, had agreed to Simbu’s proposal to dance for the ‘item number’. The offer is reportedly pending before Deepika Padukone too, who hasn’t yet responded to the offer.
In all likelihood, it’d be Katrina who would be dancing for the ‘item number’. If she does so, she would easily be overtaking another hottie Shriya Saran as the actress who has been paid the maximum amount for dancing for a particular song in a film!
