D Item Bomb of Agent Vinod
Lisa Haydon’s older sister Malika will make her movie debut with an item song in Agent Vinod. Called I’ll Do The Talking, the song is shot in a nightclub in Russia. Music composer Pritam claims that they’d bought the rights to Boney M’s Rasputin song for this number.
Malika, 27, had appeared in a Pepsi commercial along with cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne seven years ago when she was just 19.
After the commercial, Malika moved to Sydney, Australia, for further studies. Later, she took up a job in the accounts department of an Australian company.
Besides the item number, Malika has also featured in this year’s edition of the Kingfisher bikini calendar. In the past, she has worked with fashion designers like Tarun Tahiliani and Rohit Bal, Brazilian designer Jatali and hairdressers Toni & Guy.
Saif’s business partner Dinesh Vijan says the reason they chose Malika for the number was because they wanted a fresh face who could hold the song together. Malika has an international face and an Indian attitude, and so fit the bill completely.
