Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha will be seen dancing in a retro peppy number, Thank God Its Friday in film Himmatwala and filmmaker Sajid Khan says that the actress was his first and last choice for the song.

"Sonakshi was my first and last choice for the song. I had decided that if she doesn't say yes, I'll drop the song," he said at the launch of the song held on Friday evening.

Sonakshi has donned two looks in the song. The first one has been inspired from Parveen Babi's look in Shaan and the second one is similar to Sridevi from Chaalbaaz.

"The first outfit has been taken from what Parveen Babi wore in Shaan, but we have changed it a bit. The next one is from Sridevi's look in her film Chaalbaaz," Sonakshi said.

Sonakshi was recently also seen in the song Go Go Govinda from the film, Oh My God. Asked if the actress was planning to become a queen of item songs, she said that the song had to be special for her to be a part of it.

"I like dancing but the song has to be special for me to be a part of it. Even Go Go Govinda had something special and so does Thank God Its Friday," she said.

The actress also added that she didn't have to put in much preparation for the song.

"I just reached the sets. I did not do any kind of preparation. I have seen these songs before. People say I have the old world charm and I used that," she said.

Directed by Sajid Khan, Himmatwala stars Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah and is all set to release on March 29.
