Actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan will soon be seen dancing in an item number in his upcoming release Delhi Belly. He told that his performance is a tribute to the Bollywood legends who had rocked the disco era of 80's. "I am paying a tribute to those Bollywood legends who had rocked the disco era in the 80's. It is my tribute to Mithunda, Govinda, Amitji, Anilji and Rishiji who were ruling the era," Aamir told reporters after unveiling the first look of his item song, 'I hate you..'

Aamir informed that he has incorporated the styles and steps of these legends in the dance number which has been choreographed by Bosco. "I have copied Amitji's hairstyle, Govinda and Mithunda's dance style. Hair on my chest is from Anilji and the dressing is an amalgamation of all," he added.

Though this was Aamir Khan's first ever item number, the actor was quite at ease while performing for the song. "I was quite comfortable while doing it and enjoyed it very much. It took me one day to rehearse it. This is the first ever item number I have performed and I don't mind doing it again," he told. Aamir also added that his wife Kiran Rao encouraged him to take up the song.

When asked if the item song will be as popular as 'Munni badnam hui' and 'Sheila ki jawani' the actor told that it depends on the audience. The actor also informed that he approached almost all B-Town girls for the song but none of them responded back. Ram Sampath has composed the music for the song written by lyricist Akshat. Delhi Belly is a sex comedy, directed by Abhinay Deo and is slated for a July 1 release. It stars Imran Khan, Vir Das and Kunal Roy Kapoor.
