Poonam Pandey turns item girl
Poonam Pandey turns item girl for Kannada cinema
Looks like controversy's favourite child Poonam Pandey is all set to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Mallika Sherwat, Yana Gupta, Rakhi Sawant and Mumaith Khan, among others. Sources say that Poonam is the latest Bollywood import to sign up for an item number in a Kannada film. The song, for the film called Love is Poison, features hero Rajesh.
"It's a very colloquial number, to be shot against a dhaba kind of set. It will feature the hero and a couple of his friends celebrating the hero's love life. Poonam heard the song before agreeing to do it. She seems excited to be making her debut in Sandalwood," says the film's director Nanda Prabhu. While the team is yet to bring a choreographer on board, Poonam is expected to shoot for the number in Bangalore next weekend.
When BT spoke to the siren, she confirmed that she's part of the film. "Yes, I am finally coming to the south," she says excitedly, adding, "I have been looking for an opportunity to make my debut in the south and this song seemed ideal.
I am currently in discussions with my team to finalize my look in the song, but rest assured it will be Poonam Pandey style."
