‘Bhabhiji’ s Special Item Song In PATEL KI PUNJABI SHAADI

Shilpa Shinde, TV’s Bhabiji has bagged her first Bollywood film. She will soon be seen in an item number for a Bollywood film. The actress will be grooving to an item song in Rishi Kapoor starred Patel ki Punjabi Shaadi.

Seems like Shilpa is trying to break away from her image of a saree-clad daughter-in-law by doing an item song in a Bollywood film. She will soon be seen shaking a leg with Rishi Kapoor and Vir Das in the film. According to buzz, it is a celebratory song and appears during an engagement scene in the film.


Confirming the news, Shilpa said,

“After enough controversy that affected my repute, it was surprising to get a call from the makers of ‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi’. When I was offered the song I was like ‘I will have to shed some kilos’ as I haven’t done dance numbers before, but the PKPS team didn’t have enough time and wanted to shoot immediately. They briefed me about the concept and I was okay with it. I thought if I let go off this opportunity, I might not get it again, especially to dance along with such a stalwart Rishi Kapoor ji. I think I was destined to do it. Moreover, PKPS was such a good team to work with right from the producer to the stars to the director, the film title also sounds good. The name PATEL KI PUNJABI SHAADI is so vibrant.”

When asked if the controversy regarding her decision to quit her Telly soap ‘Bhabhiji Ghar Pe Hain’ worked in her favor, she says,

“Yes it’s good for me. I was really upset when I had to quit Bhabhiji. People used to tag me as ‘News Queen’…But I am an actress and my desire is always to do something where I can creatively contribute. So when I got this song, I was more than happy. Moreover, this song didn’t demand me to be skinny or acquire a particular body. All I had to do is give my best shot.  It wasn’t a demeaning song which only demands skin show. Since PKPS is a family comedy drama and it was so comfortable working with such a great team, I was game for it.”

Speaking about the song, she adds,

“It is a cute, nice, funny, situational song which comes after an interval and goes well in synch with the storyline. It isn’t there out of place. People will surely enjoy it.”

Writer and director of the film, Sanjay Chhel says,

“The song required a hot woman with innocent face and Shilpa is apt for it. She is a male fantasy yet she is popular for her family image! It’s a great combo of sex symbol & Sanskari image.”

“It’s better to cast a known image like Shilpa rather than casting a faceless item girl. I am too excited with my first venture where I am lucky to have ‘Rishi Kapoor-Paresh Rawal’ combination!”

says Bharat Patel, the film’s producer.

The film is a cross-cultural comedy. While Rishi Kapoor plays a Punjabi man, actor Paresh Rawal will play a Gujarati. It is directed by Sanjay Chhel. Shilpa had recently expressed excitement about her Bollywood break and said she was honoured to work with such stalwarts.
