Deols struggled to find a munni
Why are actresses, some even close with the family, shying away from item numbers, despite the success of Munni badnaam hui?
When Munni aka Malaika Arora Khan, rangeeli Urmila Matondkar and apro Amisha Patel refused to gyrate with the Deols (Sunny, Bobby and Dharam Paaji) in Samir Karnik’s next, Yamla Pagla Deewana, Mahek Chahal accepted the offer. Who? The girl who did an item number with Salman Khan in Wanted.
In fact, for a brief period, Mahek was linked with Salman. And soon after, she apparently vamoosed to Norway.

Mahek has now returned in all her glory to do an item number with the Deols in Samir Karnik’s forthcoming film Yamla Pagla Deewana. And mind you, she was flown all the way from Norway for this. Desperation? Perhaps she was actually ‘wanted’.
Incidentally, the item number that has been choreographed by Caesar (of the Bosco-Caesar jodi), has been sung by Mamta Sharma, who sang Munni badnaam hui in Dabangg. It’s obviously not a surprise that the Yamla… team were very keen to have Mallaika shimmy for the item number but reportedly she no longer wants to item numbers for any film that is not under her home banner.
We were hoping to watch you act as well, Mallaika, but oh well…
When contacted however, Karnik said “Mahek was always the first choice for the item number in Yamla Pagla Deewana.”
When asked if Urmila, Mallaika and Amisha were offered the part or not, he added, “No, nothing like that.”
Well, in that case, what Amisha told us may come as a surprise to you, Karnik. The actress confirmed the story and said, “I was offered this song. I did not refuse it. I was in Manali, busy shooting. I requested the producers to adjust my dates but they couldn’t, as they were on a very tight schedule. I would love to work with the Deols any day, anytime.” There’s always a next time girl; look at Mahek, for instance.
