Model-actress Lisa Haydon's sister Mallika feels that her item number in Saif Ali Khan's home production, 'Agent Vinod', will carve out a niche for herself even as the leading lady Kareena Kapoor casts her spell in the maiden mujra for the spy thriller.
Kareena, who is exploring the old genre of mujra with 'Dil Mera Muft Ka', which is choreographed by Saroj Khan, turned to veteran Rekha for inspiration.
"I don't think the song ('I'll do the talking') would get overshadowed by it (mujra)...As both the songs are of different styles they bring something different on the table," Mallika said in an interview.
The elder sibling of Lisa, who has featured in a Pepsi commercial with cricketing legends Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar, is making her Bollywood debut with 'I will do the talking'.
With the item song making quite a rage, the makers of 'Agent Vinod' have roped in Mallika for yet another special number titled 'Pyaar Ki Pungi', crooned by Mika featuring Mallika and Saif.
Mallika, who is quite elated with the response generated by the 'I'll do the talking', says the item number is boisterous and stands out from the crowd of recent Bollywood numbers.
"It ('I'll do the talking') is different from the other usual item songs. It is different from Sheila's, Chikni Chameli's and all. It is not like that at all. It is clubby, bouncy...feel good kind of a song (sic)," she said.
Mailka said 'Pyar ki Pungi' takes the story forward whereas 'I'll do the talking' is just a promotional song.
When asked whether she was comfortable doing the item song, Mallika says dancing has always been her passion.
"It was pretty simple for me as I have been dancing since I was a kid. Dance is something I have been interested in so it was easy for me," she said.
The spy thriller directed by Sriram Raghavan will be released in 3,500 screens globally including 2,500 in India on March 23.
