Akshay Kumar Latest News – Dance with Hot Jacqueline Fernandez

A heroine has been finalized to jive with Akshay Kumar - Akki for the remixed song of Apni to jaise taise... from Laawaris (1981). It’s Bollywood Aladin actress, Hot Jacqueline Fernandez, who has bagged the coveted role for Sajid Khan’s Housefull.

Ritesh Deshmukh, Jacqueline’s Aladin co-star will be also seen in the song. She was finalized for the item song on Thursday.

The song, which was originally sung by Kishore Kumar, has been re-recorded in Mika’s voice.

Portions of Kishore Kumar’s original track will also be retained.
The interesting part of the re-recording, which was originally composed by Kalyanji-Anandji, is that director Sajid Khan too sang a few lines of the song along with Mika.

The remixed version is composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.
Sajid says, “I had sung a few lines of Mast Kalandar in my first film as a director, Heyy Baby. So I was asked to pitch in as the lucky mascot for Apni to jaise taise too. We have completely redone the original song. However, if Kalyanji-Anandji were alive, they would be very happy with what we have done with their song.”

Commenting on Jacqueline Hot finally bagging this chartbuster, Sajid says, “We wanted a relatively fresh, untried face for the song. Both, Farah, who is going to choreograph the number, and me, thought that Jacqueline was perfect for it.”
Apparently, the negotiations with

Sushmita Sen
fell through. This isn’t the first time that Sushmita has said no to an item song.

In Santosh Sivan’s Asoka, she had turned down an item song, Aa tayaar hoja with Shah Rukh Khan, which was finally performed by Rajalakshmi Iyer.
Iyer turned out to be a complete non-dancer, but Sajid assures us Jacqueline is a fantastic dancer.

“She’s going to give Akshay, Ritesh and Arjun Rampal a run for their money.”
Jacqueline is on cloud nine about doing the song. She says, “I am so excited and nervous about doing the song. It is so cool. I couldn’t believe it when I was approached for the song. Nobody knows this, but I can really dance. I can’t wait to shoot the number.”
