Actress Priyanka Chopra, whose look in retro chartbuster 'Babli Badmaash' resembles that of Amitabh Bachchan's disco number from Yaarana, says the item song is an ode to the megastar.
Priyanka is seen wearing an edgy costume of rubber and leather studded with LED lights loosely resembling the jacket worn by Bachchan for the popular 'Saara Zamana' from the 1981 blockbuster, in Sanjay Gupta's upcoming film Shootout At Wadala.
"I have acted in three remake films (Don, Agneepath and Zanjeer) of Mr Amitabh Bachchan. I am big fan of him. Unfortunately, I couldn't play his role. So it is my ode to him through this song," Priyanka told the PTI.
The retro track is composed by Anu Malik, sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and choreographed by Ahmed Khan. "I had a good experience while doing the song. It was hectic but fun. We had to finish the song in two days I had to shoot for Gunday. I enjoyed doing the song," she said. "In real life, I am not badmaash (naughty)... I am decent," she said.
Ask her if she is okay with the tag of an item girl, Priyanka says, "I think the item girl tag is overdone. It is a guest appearance song I did for Ekta. By calling it that way it sounds a bit cheap. I am satisfied and happy the way the song has come out. I hope people like it," she said.
