Item girl for 'R... Rajkumar'
After Shahrukh Khan presented south actress Priyamani in the Chennai Express item song, it kinda started a trend in Bollywood. Director Prabhu Deva, who was madly on the lookout for an item girl for his R... Rajkumar, also met his girl down south. So, who will sizzle along with Shahid Kapoor in the spicy number in the film?
She is actress Ragini Dwivedi. The buxom belle has mostly appeared in Kannada films and is known to be a sex symbol down south.
Initially, the makers apparently wanted to cast a top actress to do the item song. Also, it’s heard that Shahid Kapoor was also on the same page with Prabhu Deva, but not everyone is as lucky as Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who was able to get Priyanka Chopra for an item song in Ram Leela.
Since all the A-list actresses have their date diaries full, nothing could materialize. Disappointed with the situation, Prabhu Deva looked down south and finalised Kannada actress Ragini Dwivedi for the item song.
Before joining films, Ragini Dwivedi was into modeling. She was a runner up at 2009 Femina Miss South India contest, and even won the Miss Beautiful Hair title at the Femina Miss India contest the same year.
Ragini made her acting debut with the Kannada film Veera Madakari that starred Sudeep. The film was a big success at the box office, and Ragini got recognition. Following this, she appeared in various films and in 2010 even did a Malayalam movie.
