There is a rather amusing joke floating around in Bollywood on how Warina Hussain got the item song in Dabangg 3 with the newest item boy Salman Khan.
Salman was sitting with director Prabhudheva , his brothers and cronies discussing the item number in Dabangg 3 .It was then decided that Salman would be the item boy in the song. But the song-and-dance also needed a feminine shoulder.
So Salman drawled, “Kareena-Warina ko le aao(bring Kareena or someone like her).”
Taking the words seriously and literally, the crew went and offered the song to Kareena and when she declined politely they dutifully trudged to Warina Hussain , the newcomer who made her debut alongside Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Ayush Sharma in Loveratri.
In Dabangg 3, 20-year Warina does make an odd pair with Salman. But then so does 21-year old Saiee Manjrekar who’s actually Salman’s friend’s daughter. As we can see Salman’s heroines are getting younger and younger.
No wonder Warina and not Kareena was roped in for the item song.
