Director Farah Khan says that the item number in her forthcoming film Om Shanti Om that stars Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles, is the mother of all item numbers.

The song has 31 stars from Bollywood ranging from stalwarts like Jeetendra , Dharmendra , Rekha , Sanjay Dutt , Saif Ali Khan , Shilpa Shetty , Kajol , Karisma Kapoor , Salman Khan and Govinda .




Farah announced the tie up of 'LYCRA MTV Style Awards 2007' with the multi starrer 'Om Shanti Om' at a press conference in Mumbai on Monday.

She said SRK, Shreyas Talpade , Arjun Rampal and debutante Deepika will showcase their distinctive style statements on October 25 at the Andheri Sports Complex in Mumbai. Designer Manish Malhotra will showcase his retro theme inspired by Om Shanti Om.

"We had invited 34 stars, of which 31 made it. Aamir Khan could not come as he was busy with his film Ghajini , Dev saab also could not come. Amitabh Bachchan could not make it as he was busy with the Ash-Abhi wedding at that time. He has played a small role in the film. This song is a tribute to Bollywood. It is a film based in the 70's . I think the youth will like the film," Farah said.

Speaking to reporters Deepika said, "Since it is a 70's film I saw older films, my inspirations have been Madhubala, Hema Malini and Helen . I am not here to ape them, but since I was not born then I would like to get a feel of that era. I am very lucky to have got a break with Shah Rukh Khan as I have idolised him, and since 'Farah' is a female director and has been around for 17 years that made things very easy."

When quizzed about the experience of working with King Khan, Deepika said, "On the first day of the shoot he came and gave me a pat on the shoulder and said we all are with you."

When asked about the famous T20 match on Saturday she replied, "I had gone there to support the team since it was happening in Mumbai."

"The T20 team is doing very well", Deepika added.

Arjun, who is playing a negative role in the film says, "When I did Don I did not think of Pransaab, similarly in this negative role I did not think of any villain in the 70's. I have tried to bring in something new. It is important for any actor to do something different and in a film like 'Om Shanti Om' when I got an opportunity I took it."

"For Diwali we will be in London as the 'Om Shanti Om' premiere will be held there," he said.

"Farah's energy is at par with that of Shah Rukh Khan. I am happy with my look in the film. I did not consciously copy actors but yes the body language resembles a few of them. When you wear your costume you must feel your character," the talented Shreyas Talpade said.
