Actress Priyanka Chopra, whose debut single In My City has received a lot of compliments, was initially approached by music composer Anu Malik to sing the track Babli Badmaash from the film Shootout At Wadala. Priyanka went on to perform for this song instead. Anu Malik was recently quoted saying that he wanted Priyanka to sing the item number. He added that she is very bubbly and energetic and that he loves the texture of her voice.
Anu also said that Priyanka refused, as she is under a contract with her record label. He said that it is unfortunate and that in the future, he would definitely like to have her sing for his compositions.
Sanjay Gupta-directed Shootout At Wadala, starring John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee, Kangna Ranaut and Tusshar Kapoor, is set to release on May 1, 2013.
