Chennai expressNational Award-winning southern actress Priyamani has worked in Hindi films earlier but in Rohit Shetty's "Chennai Express" she is doing her first ever item number. The actress can't wait to shoot for it as it would allow her to meet Bollywood superstar and the film's lead actor Shah Rukh Khan.

"I am very excited. I am just waiting for the shoot to happen so that I get to meet Shah Rukh Khan and to shoot with him," Priyamani told IANS.

The actress, who won the National Award for 2006 Tamil film "Paruthi Veeran", is doing an item song for the first time and said: "I have never done an item number. It is the first time and there is always a first time for everything."

With item numbers becoming a staple in Hindi movies and actresses like Katrina Kaif and Malaika Arora setting the benchmark, Priyamani, 28, is unperturbed about the competition.

"I am not scared. That is a completely different league. They are excellent in what they do, which is fantastic. I am not going to be scared to be branded," she confessed.

When it comes to playing lead roles in Hindi films, the actress, seen in "Raavan" and "Rakht Charitra", is very clear about what she wants.

"You need to see what kind of offers come your way. Just because it is Bollywood, doesn't mean that you have to take it. If something nice comes my way, I will take it up," she said.

"It has to be something substantial. I am not saying that I have to do films like 'The Dirty Picture' or 'Kahaani'. It could be something commercial as well," said the actress whose work down south also includes "Yamadonga", "Thirakkatha".
