Salman Khan and his ravishing sisterin-law Malaika Arora Khan have never shared screen space. But now the Bollywood sizzler, known for dance numbers like Chaiyyan-Chaiyyan in Dil Se and Mahi Ve in Kaante, does an item number with her hunky brother-in-law. The song, composed by Lalit Pandit, is for the Abhinav Kashyap-directed, Arbaaz Khan-produced Dabangg. It has the raunchy title Munni Badnaam Hui Darling Tere Liye. And Farah Khan, who choreographed Chaiyyan-Chaiyyan atop a train between Malaika and Shah Rukh Khan, will do this number as well.
It will be shot in a set resembling a rugged, sweaty Bihari bar, something like Beedi Jalaile in Omkara. When Arbaaz heard Lalit Pandit’s number, he realised it had the potential to set the charts on fire… provided his wife did justice to it. Although Arbaaz has a pivotal role in the film, he and Malaika don’t share any scenes. Maybe he knows that while the wife and he on screen are not exciting enough, the bro-in-law-sisin-law combo is something that would set audiences’ pulses racing!
