Mumbai, Sep 3 (IANS) Neha Dhupia says she has signed a Punjabi film with Jimmy Sheirgill and that she will be doing her first item song for another film.

"Yes I am. I am doing a Punjabi film with Jimmy Shergill called 'Rangeeley' for which I am going to be shooting right now, I leave for a month," the 32-year-old revealed at the Blenders Pride Fashion Preview Sunday.

Neha is also going to feature in a commercial Hindi film besides an item song as well.

"Then I will be coming back and, most people tell me that I stay away from commercial films, so as soon as I am back, I am venturing into something extremely big and commercial. I am also jumping on the bandwagon with doing my first item song which is exciting," she said.

The item song is supposedly for director Tigmanshu Dhulia's sequel to "Sahib, Biwi aur Gangster".

Rana wants to speed up things

Rana Daggubati, whose Bollywood debut "Dum Maaro Dum" bombed at the box office, plans to speed up his work to ensure regular visibility.

"I have just finished a bilingual film called 'Krishna Mandir Jagat Guru' - it is a large action-based film in Tamil and Telugu. I will be starting a Hindi film in January. This time I am hoping to do things faster because each film is taking one, one-and-a-half-year to get done," the 27-year-old said here Sunday at the Blenders Pride Fashion Preview.

"But I promise I will do something faster. Also, I am working on things which release in three or four languages at the same time," he added.
