The sensational Vidya Balan is making waves in Bollywood this year with her outstanding performances in Paa and Ishqiya. Vidya is now all set to do an item number in the Santosh Sivan directed tri-lingual Urumi.
Don’t jump to conclusions that Vidya is going to do a conventional item number that one would associate with a commercial film. She will be doing a traditional ‘Mohiniattam’, which will be shot in a very artistic and sensuous manner by Santosh, who has made Aishwarya Rai (Iruvar and Raavan) and Kareena Kapoor (Asoka) look sensuous and beautiful on screen.
Santosh, who had given her a narration of his story, feels that Vidya has the “best Indian look and is a classical beauty”.
She was also impressed by the songs from the film tuned by Deepak Dev, who had once worked with A R Rahman. Vidya fell in love with the songs, especially the Mohiniattam number.
