Katrina Kaif to do an item song in Lok Sabha to break deadlock over JPC

23, Nov 2010 By Anshul Gupta

New Delhi. Congress has announced that Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif would perform an item dance number in the central hall of the parliament in an attempt to break the deadlock over opposition demands of a JPC (Joint Parliamentary Committee) probe into the 2G spectrum scam. Party is hopeful that the opposition members would forget 2G, CWG, Adarsh, and all other scams once they get the “ultimate enjoyment”.

“They (opposition leaders) are also citizens of this country,” Congress spokesperson Manish Tewary said, “If the citizens of this nation can be happy with stuff like Bigg Boss and forget all the scams, there is no reason why our respected friends in the opposition can’t. They must.”

Will she help India forget all the bad things?

In fact our sources suggest that Congress might not even need to pay Katrina Kaif any professional fee for this special parliamentary performance. Katrina is all set to become the brand ambassador of Congress as a result of an “out of court settlement” between the ruling party and producers of the upcoming Bollywood movie Tees Maar Khan.

As per the planned events, Delhi Chief Minister and Congress leader Mrs. Sheila Dikshit would send a legal notice to the producers for using her name in the song “Sheela Ki Jawaani” without permission and ask for compensation. As soon as the news channels would run it as “breaking news”, both the parties would come up with an out of court settlement as had happened in the Dabangg-Zandu Balm case.

Producers of Tees Maar Khan have agreed to the proposal which would end up making Katrina Kaif, the actress dancing to the tunes of “Sheela Ki Jawaani” in the movie, as brand ambassador of Congress; in the same way as Malaika Arora Khan had become one for Zandu Balm.

“Any publicity is good publicity,” producers Twinkle Khanna, Ronnie Screwvala and Shirish Kunder said on phone, which was being tapped by our PR consultant Niira Radia.

Apart from breaking the deadlock in parliament, Congress is also hoping to replicate the success of “Munni Badnaam Hui”, which had helped Zandu Balm record a 35% rise in sales. The party is planning to use Katrina Kaif’s posters from the movie Raajneeti in the upcoming elections in states like West Bengal to increase its vote share.
