Bollywood's dance diva Madhuri Dixit Nene will not be doing an item song in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming venture "Ram Leela".

According to earlier reports, the filmmaker had approached to actress for a raunchy number in the romantic drama starring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in lead roles.

However, terming the reports as baseless, a source close to the movie said there was no situation for an item song in "Ram Leela".

"There is no truth to these rumours. Firstly, there is no situation for an item song in Ram Leela," the source told DNA.

"Secondly, why would Sanjay sir repeat the Madhuri-younger hero format in an item song? This is nothing but wishful thinking on someone's part. Sanjay sir will call Madhuri to dance for his film only when there's a situation to better what he did in the Maar Daala and Kahe Chede Chede Mohe dance numbers in Devdas," the source added.

Madhuri was recently seen shaking a leg with Ranbir Kapoor in the peppy track "Ghagra" from director Ayan Mukerji's "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani". The song was a hit and the film was declared a blockbuster.

The 46-year-old diva is set to make her second comeback to the silver screen through Abhishek Chaubey's "Dedh Ishqiya". A sequel of 2007 hit film "Ishqiya", the film also stars Naseeruddin Shah Arshad Warsi, and "Gangs Of Wasseypur" fame Huma Qureshi.

"Dedh Ishqiya" is one of the much hyped films of 2013 and the "Dhak Dhak" girl will be seen playing her first grey character in the film through the role of Begum Para. Another highlight of the film is that she will perform a mujra in a track by Vishal Bhardwaj titled "Apke karar mein ".

After "Dedh Ishqiya", Madhuri's next project is debutant Soumik Sen's "Gulaab Gang". Co-produced by Anubhav Sinha and Abhinay Deo, the film also features Juhi Chawla.
