Priyanka Chopra to be the unique item ladySpoofs seem to be the latest fad in Bollywood. Close on the heels of Salman Khan's hit song Character Dheela from Ready and Aamir's not such-a-hit I Hate You Like I Love You from Delhi Belly (both take-offs on old-time Bollywood), rumour has it that industry's current favourite Priyanka Chopra is all set to take on this generation's cult item girls Sheila and Munni, in a new item song.

The industry is abuzz with the speculation that Piggy Chops' first ever item number in the forthcoming film Tezz will be a spoof on the hit item numbers Munni Badnam Hui and Sheila Ki Jawani. The actress, who has never performed an item song per se, has reportedly agreed to give dates for song in question.

Though known for her inimitable sex appeal, and never one to shy away from 'bold' sequences where scripts called for it, Priyanka had categorically refused to ever do an item number in an interview. But the 28-year-old has apparently had a change of heart-perhaps considering how Munni and Sheila became overnight rages nationwide.

Secondly, Priyanka is not oblivious to the fact that the popularity of rivals Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone took a giant leap post their item forays in Tees Maar Khan and Dum Maaro Dum respectively.

Sources claim that Priyanka's item debut is intended as a funny take on Munni and Sheila. Tezz is being directed by Bollywood's favourite funny man Priyadarshan, and will star Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn and Kangna Ranaut.

However, going against Priyadarshan's staple comedies of error (Malamaal Weekly, Hera Pheri), Tezz will be an action thriller , and has been shot extensively in Europe. Priyanka's number has apparently been composed by the music-director duo Sajid- Wajid. So will Priyanka be the new item queen? Wait and watch!
