The Times of India reported on Feb 13, 2013, that National Award-winning south Indian actress Priyamani will do an item song in Rohit Shetty's "Chennai Express."
Priyamani said to TOI, "I am very excited. I am just waiting for the shoot to happen so that I get to meet Shah Rukh Khan and to shoot with him."
"I have never done an item number. It is the first time and there is always a first time for everything," she added.
Priyamani has acted in Hindi movies like "Raavan" and "Rakht Charitra".
When asked about what kind of roles she would like to play in Bollywood movies she said, "You need to see what kind of offers come your way.
"Just because it is Bollywood, doesn't mean that you have to take it. If something nice comes my way, I will take it up," she said.
"It has to be something substantial. I am not saying that I have to do films like 'The Dirty Picture' or 'Kahaani'. It could be something commercial as well," said the actress.
