DNA India reports that Shah Rukh Khan has asked for "decorum of the highest order" for his item song in Chennai Express with Tamil actress Priyamani.
A source informs, "The original choice was to pair Shah Rukh with the Tamil actress Nayantara and Prabhu Dheva was to choreograph them. But Shah Rukh wanted a sober song with non-risque movements. So Prabhu Dheva’s elder brother Raju Sunderam, who is a formidable name in choreography and who hardly ever steps into Bollywood, was coaxed to do the item song for Chennai Express. Shah Rukh in any case has a family image. But now with all eyes of the moral police focused on item songs, he has decided not to go anywhere close to raunchy. His brief to Raju Sunderman was to make it fun but not raunchy."
Some of SRK's previous item songs include Chaiyya Chaiyya from Dil Se with Malaika Arora Khan, Dard-e-Disco from Om Shanti Om, Ishq Kamina from Shakti - The Power with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Marjani Marjani from Billu Barber with Kareena Kapoor Khan, Love Mera Hit Hit from Billu Barber with Deepika Padukone, Iss Kaal Kaal Mein from Kaal with Malaika Arora Khan, and Chammak Challo from Ra.One with Kareena Kapoor Khan.
