Munni Badnaam Hui, Darling Tere Liye
This iten song has almost become like an anthem. The popularity of this rustic and raunchy "item song" has surpassed that of all previous item songs. Malaika Arora Khan has truly outdone all the girls vying for the tag of "hottest item girl on the block"!
Shot in a rustic North Indian village, "Munni Badnaam" is a full on masti song with interesting lyrics, masala, latkas and jhatkas. Malaika is not a new name in the field of item songs. She started the trend of "item numbers" with her Chaiyya Chaiyya, followed by a string of other item numbers. Other names like Aishwarya Rai and Rakhi Sawant gave tough competition to Malaika in the years that followed. But Malaika is now back, with a bang!
As Malaika reclaims her throne, there is another young lady vying for the tag of "item girl". Katrina Kaif, is known for her sweet face and lovely smiles. She is one of the most popular and successful actresses today. But what she is not is an "item girl". Now this is set to change!
Farah Khan has shot an item number with Katrina Kaif in her yet to be released Tees Maar Khan. "Shiela" is being touted to be hotter and more popular than Munni. Both "Shiela" and "Munni" have been choreographed by Farah herself. But Shiela is a song in Farah's home production. So it is not hard to believe that Shiela will be even more popular and successful than Munni. It is a little sad that even top actresses have to do item numbers to remain in demand. Item numbers catch everyone's fancy, but are these not like objectifying women? It would be interesting to know what these item girls think about this?
What say "Shiela"?
