Priyanka Chopra recently shot for a special number — her first item song — in Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout At Wadala. And since the film is set in the 80s, all the three looks that she sports in the song Babli Badmash have a retro feel to them. For one such look, the actress has been inspired by yesteryear Bolly siren Zeenat Aman.
Talking about the song, Gupta shares, “Feroze Khan and RD Burman have both been two of my all time favourites, but the two never worked together. So, I have tried to mix the flavour of the two in this song and Anu Malik has been able to recreate that magic of the era superbly well.”
Choreographed by Ahmed Khan, the song has been sung by Sunidhi Chauhan. The looks have been designed by Manish Malhotra who’s given PC a retro look, but has also adapted it to give her a distinct style. So, while Zeenat was known to wear long slit gowns mostly sequined, PC will be seen wearing a leather gown. “Manish has retained the 80s feel, yet lent it a contemporary flavour,” says an insider.
