Mumbai: In the Tamil version of hit item song, Munni Badnaam Hui, the film's makers are reportedly signing on Katrina Kaif. Not just that, a cool Rs 2.5 crore has been set aside for just the song.

Last year's biggest Bollywood competition was between two popular songs, Sheila Ki Jawani and Munni Badnaam Hui, but in a strange turn of events, Sheila, or rather Katrina Kaif is set to become Munni.

The makers of the under-production Osthi, the Tamil version of Dabangg, plagued by fears of a possible comparison between the new Munni Badnaam Hui with the original, have decided to go for a new version of the song.
