Bollywood’s Dabangg goes biggest blockbuster for the year 2010 and so was the item song “Munni Badnam Huyi..”. Featured Maliaka Arora Khan, the racy number swept off the feet of young buffs. As the film is being remade in Tamil as Osthi, with Simbu in lead, audience are curious to know who is going to be the Kollywood Munni. Though Nayantara was initially roped in for the same, she purportedly refused the offer. Now Shriya is said to be more than happy to oblige.
Shriya has recently made an item number for Pawan Kalyan in Komuram Puli. From ‘Dochey’ song, the slim beauty expected more heroine chances and the expectations went wrong. Ironically, she was being offered item songs.
Osthi is being directed by Dharani and Revathi will appear as Simbu’s mother (Dimple Kapadia in Hindi), while Sonu Sood will reprise his original role in the Tamil version. Seen alongside Simbu is ‘Leader’ beauty Richa Gangopadhyay in the role of Rajjo, made memorable by Sonakshi Sinha in Dabangg.
