One of the highlights of Salman Khan's Dabangg was the Munni Badnam Hui, the item song picturised on Malaika Arora.
Even the balm mentioned in the song had record sales. Now Silambarasan and director Dharani who are remaking Dabangg in Tamil as Osthi, are all out trying to rope in a big actress to do the item number.
The grapevine has it that STR and Dharani talked to Nayanthara to make one last "farewell item number" appearance and was willing to pay her what she would get to do a full film!
However Nayanthara, politely refused as she wanted Sri Rama Rajyam to be her last release, before she called it a day.
The latest we hear is that STR and Dharani are talking to Zarine Khan (girl who did Ready item number with Salman and is Vikram's heroine in Karikalan) and Malaika Arora.
A list of 'usual suspects' like Shriya Saran, Mumaith Khan and Meghna Naidu is also being considered.
