Shamita Shetty, the younger sibling of saucy Shilpa, is reported to have replaced former veejay Maria Goretti for an item song titled Chori Pe Chori in debutant director Shaad Ali's film Saathiya.
Shamita has been absent from the big screen ever since her debut in Yash Chopra productions' Mohabbatein. However, she was seen in a cameo for a song Sharara alongwith Uday Chopra in Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai.
And now Shamita has been roped in for yet another number in director Shaad Ali's Saathiya which stars Vivek Oberoi and Rani Mukherji in the lead roles.
Ali is planning to shoot a new version of the Chori Pe Chori song which will be shot on Shamita, Vivek and Piyush in Mumbai. The song will be choreographed by Remo who has worked for Chhal and Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai.
The song was earlier supposed to have former VJ Maria Goretti who was later replaced with Shamita, who "goes better with the mood of the track," says Ali.
It may be mentioned that Shamita will also be seen acting alongside Chandrachud Singh and Sanjay Dutt in a film titled Mohabbat Ho Gayi Hai Tumse.
