Sonakshi to do item number in Shirish Kunders Joker

"We have one item song in the film. Sonakshi and another top actress will be doing the song together. We are yet to finalise the other actress. These days, I believe, item songs are a great marketing tool," Shirish told PTI.

Directed by Shirish, `Joker` is a fantasy-adventure film made in 3D format in Hindi, and stars Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi, Shreyas Talpade and Minnisha Lamba.

Sonakshi, who debuted playing village belle `Rajjo` opposite Salman Khan in `Dabangg`, will be seen dancing to the tune of ace choreographer Farah Khan for a raunchy item song.

"Farah would choreograph the song… it will be shot in Mumbai," Shirish said.
