Priyanka Chopra to Shake Leg with Shah Rukh Khan in “Billoo Barber”

Shah Rukh Khan is going to do an item number with Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra for Priyadarshan's next movie Billoo Barber, which is re-scheduled to hit the Indian cinema in February next year. Shah Rukh Khan plays an important role, portraying a film star in the movie. Director Priyadarshan wanted Shah Rukh Khan to choose some of the leading Bollywood actresses for a few glamorous item numbers in the movie and Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor have already agreed to shake leg with Shah Rukh Khan in item numbers.

The item song with Kareena Kapoor was shot in the very beginning of the shooting. Now, the shooting for the second item song involving Bollywood heartthrob Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan is going on. The story of the movie is inspired by the story of Lord Krishna and his childhood friend Sudama.

The movie Billoo Barber revolves around the story of a superstar and his childhood friend Billoo (played by Irrfan Khan), a barber by profession. Interestingly, Irrfan Khan plays the male lead role in the movie, even though Shah Rukh Khan was initially offered the role of Billoo, but Mr. Khan opted to take a back seat in the movie.
