There can be no second thoughts to the fact that Malaika Arora is the Bollywood item song queen; with performances like ‘Chaiyaan Chaiyaan' to ‘Munni Badnaam Hui' and so many more to her kitty! While; Kareena Kapoor Khan too, has proven her dancing chops in item songs like ‘Mera Naam Mary' and ‘Fevicol Se'. 


And you need to wake up from your slumber if you do not know that the 2 actresses are extremely close friends with each other! And both of them individually have featured in an item song in both the installments of Salman Khan's super hit franchise ‘Dabangg'.


And now; with the makers confirming ‘Dabangg 3', the industry grapevine has it that Salman Khan has decided to stick with Kareena Kapoor Khan for the item sequel in Dabangg 3. A report in the Deccan Chronicle says the makers have decided to rope in 'Fevicol Se' girl Kareena Kapoor for an item song in the film. 


Well, the news certainly does not come as a surprise since Arora and Arbaaz have parted ways and there have also been rumors of Salman banning Arjun Kapoor from visiting his home, because of Arjun's growing closeness with Arbaaz Khan's ex-wife and Salman's ex-sister-in-law Malaika.


Admit speculations of Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor tying the knot by the end of this year; it is also being alleged that Arjun's father Boney Kapoor and cousin Sonam Kapoor are staunchly against their relationship. 


Directed by Prabhudeva; Dabangg 3 will go on floors in the first week of April and will see the much-loved pair of Chulbul Pandey and Rajjo recreating their romance onscreen. The film will also feature Kannada actor Sudeep in a pivotal role.


Kareena has in past interviews spoken about her bond with Salman and his family. The ‘Heroine' actress has been quoted saying," I have a very old connection with the Khan family. It's such a wonderful coincidence that I have always been a part of the Khan family's home productions. I acted in Sohail's first production Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna. I did the song Fevicol Se in Dabangg 2 which was Arbaaz's directorial debut."


Further, she had said," When Alvira and Atul started their production house with Bodyguard, I played the lead actress opposite Salman, and then again in Salman's home production, Bajrangi Bhaijaan. That makes me feel very special. In fact, not only me; my sister Karisma, who has also worked with Salman, shares a good friendship with Salman and his family."


Well, if the news of Malaika being replaced by Kareena is true, it certainly shows that the doors of the Khan family and the Khan production house have been close on Malaika. Ouch!
