Actress Shraddha Kapoor, known for her roles in Aashiqui 2 and ‘Haider’, will be seen as a glamourous item girl in Karan Johar’s production venture Ungli.

Directed by Rensil D’Silva, Ungli stars Emraan Hashmi and Kangana Ranaut in the lead.“I don’t know whether to call it an item song or a promotional song, but yes, it’s a very different thing that I am doing,” Shraddha, who will team up with Emraan in the song.

“Karan offered me the song and said, ‘You have never been seen like this before. It’s a very glamourous song.’ So all that excited me and I said yes to it. The moment I heard the song, I was all the more excited as it’s such a catchy song," she further added.

Titled Dance Basanti, the song is choreographed by Bosco-Caesar. When asked does the song have any link to Hema Malini’s Basanti from Sholay, she said, “I guess, it’s definitely a take on original Basanti.

 It’s a modern day twist. I can’t compare myself with Hemaji’s Basanti. She is the original legendary Basanti.”
