And we do not say this without proof. The actress was captured dressed in a pink top, jeans and boots while shooting for the song on the sets of the film.
The song is being shot in Kamalistan Studios in Jogeshwari.
Though Kareena flaunts her well-toned midriff in this outfit, Chhoti Begum seems to be a bit over-dressed for an item number.
Remember a size zero Kareena in a skimpy bikini in Chhalia Chhalia from Tashan.
If buzz is to be believed, it took a lot of convincing to get the Kapoor gal onboard for this item song as she had announced a "no item song, no kissing" condition post her marriage to Saif Ali Khan.
But thanks to her friend and co-producer of Gabbar, Shabina Khan, Bebo agreed to do the number after a lot of deliberation.
Besides, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's treatment of Priyanka Chopra in Ram Chahe Leela (Ramleela) is said to have done the trick.
Interestingly, Kareena was SLB's first choice for the lead role in Ramleela, but she opted out of the film and the role landed in Deepika Padukone's kitty.
She had even stirred up a controversy after she claimed to be the only actress who donated her roles to other actresses, while justifying her dropping out of the project.
But now it seems that Ramleela's humungous success and a string of bad movie choices have jolted her out of her coocoon and the actress is taking the plunge to revive her fledgling career.
We wish Kareena all the best in her endeavour. As for you, check out her look and tell us if it's hot or not.
