Actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan, who will be seen dancing in an item number in his soon to be released movie 'Delhi Belly', today said his performance is a tribute to the Bollywood legends who had rocked the disco era of 80's.
"I am paying a tribute to those Bollywood legends who had rocked the disco era in the 80's. It is my tribute to
Mithunda, Govinda, Amitji, Anilji and Rishiji who were ruling the era," Aamir told reporters after unveiling the first look of his item song -- 'I hate you...'
He said he has incorporated the styles of these legends in the dance number which has been choreographed by Bosco.
"I have copied Amitji's hairstyle, Govinda and Mithunda's dance style. Hair on my chest is from Anilji and the dressing is an amalgamation of all," he said.
Aamir said he was at ease while performing his first ever "full-on" item number.
"I was quite comfortable while doing it and enjoyed it very much. It took me one day to rehearse it. This is the first ever item number I have performed and I don't mind doing it again," he said, adding that his wife Kiran Rao had encouraged him to take up the song.
"My last prominent screen appearance was in '3 Idiots'. I once again wanted to be in front of my fans and so I thought of doing this. Kiran had suggested me to do this song," the actor said.
When asked whether the item song would be as popular as 'Munni badnam hui' and 'Sheila ki jawani', he said, "I hope it becomes a success...it all depends on the audience."
