For the first time in her career Bollywood's Numero Uno actress Kareena Kapoor has performed a mujra choreographed by Saroj Khan in her forthcoming film Illuminati & Eros International’s "Agent Vinod" starring Saif Ali Khan.
Styled by Manish Malhotra, Kareena is back with all her 'nazakat' and 'adayein' doing a sensuous 'mujra' - a crucial sequence in the film that carries the story forward.
Says director Shriram Raghavan, "The song, 'Dil mera muft ka', has been shot as a mujra because it blended well with the plot of the film. Songs should take the film forward, not exist just for entertainment. There is a sequence in Karachi, Pakistan, so I thought if we have to do a song sequence, then let it be a traditional mujra".
If sources are to be believed , Kareena took cues from veteran diva Rekha who had audiences mesmerized in the early 80’s with mujra numbers from her films – "Muqaddar Ka Sikandar" and "Umrao Jaan".
Says a source "Kareena is a perfectionist and was very excited to be doing the 'mujra' song – She discussed the details with Sriram and Saif before shooting the song and even participated in the planning of the entire song right from the concept, to the look and even rehearsed non-stop with Sarojji until she got the finer nuances of the dance form".
Apart from some heavy duty action, the film boasts of music by maestro Pritam. The highly anticipated action-adventure,"Agent Vinod" also starring Adil Hussain, Ram Kapoor, Prem Chopra and Gulshan Grover, is all set to release on the 23rd March 2012 .
