After doing her second item number in the Tusshar Kapoor-Ayesha Takia starrer, Kya Love Story Hai, Kareena Kapoor has decided that this will be her swan song, as far as item numbers go.
On both instances (the first being 'Yeh mera dil' in Don) the actress has agreed to do the item numbers as a favour to friends. The most recent one has been for good friend and director Lovely Singh.

The item song will be filmed in March and probably choreographed by Ganesh Hegde. "But please, no more item songs after this, even for friends. I wouldn't have done it for anyone else," says Kareena.
"At first I wasn't sure I wanted to do another item song after 'Yeh mera dil' in Don. But it was for a dear friend. I've known Lovely Singh from the time he was assisting Satish Kaushik on Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai. He has always stood by me," Kareena says.
"Yesterday I heard the song that Pritam and Salim-Suleiman recorded for me. It's a rocking track. I'm only too happy to possess it. Is it as good as 'Yeh mera dil?' (Laughs) You can't compare the two," she says.
Meanwhile, the actress who goes into the Yashraj film Tasal with Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor in April, followed by Mani Ratnam's Lajjo in winter.
And refuting rumours of Lajjo being shelved Kareena says, "We're working on the look and dialogues of the film. Mani Sir is polishing the script. In the meanwhile I'm thoroughly enjoying my extended holiday. I enjoy doing yoga, going to the gym and playing with my niece Samaira. I'm taking just one more holiday to Bangkok for Shahid's birthday on February 25. After that no more holidays for a long time. It will just be work, work and more work for me."
