Kareena Kapoor wooed hers fans when she gyrated in a red saree to the tune of 'Chammak Challo'. But rival item number 'Chikni Chameli' took all the icing from Kareena's platter at the end of the year.

That did not demoralise Kareena who is staging a come back with another "desi" item number- a 'mujra'.

Her new item number, 'Dil Mera Muft Ka' is her first mujra for boyfriend Saif Ali Khan's home production 'Agent Vinod'.

Kareena has no formal training in classical dance. Owing to which the actress had to toil extra bit to get her act perfect as a dancer. She took nearly 22 hours to wrap up the song sequence.

Ace choreography Saroj Khan taught her the fine nuances of kathak (classical dance) while Manish Malhotra designed her costume. The red hot apparel with loosely tied hair completed her mujra look. The lyrics of the song 'Fenke Nazar Ke Sikke Usne... Bik Gayi Hoo Main', have already caught the fancy of netizens.

Dancing in the tune of an item songs was ‘not-so-happening' thing for our Bollywood divas few years back. It was a thing for the vamps.

But now the tune has indeed changed; now if you want to seal your fate in B-town you need to do it with an item number. The original item girls like Rakhi Sawant have vanished. It's now the lead actresses like Katrina, Deepika, Bipasha, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena who will do anything for an item number in a movie.

Kareena leaped a notch ahead this time with a mujra in ‘Agent Vinod’.

It seems Bebo darling is giving all out for beau Saif Ali Khan’s home production. And why not, while trying to impress Chote Nawab she might also end up giving the Munnis and the Shielas a run for their money.
