Item numbers are an integral part of Bollywood films. Before the item songs were performed by a particular section of item girls. They were never called actresses but were always referred to as item girls but today's Bollywood actresses are breaking that norm and performing in item songs.
We have seen actresses over the years display their acting as
well dancing skills with equal proficiency. But today films cash in
on dance sequences of a different kind. Yes, we're talking about
item numbers or performances which have the actress dance to high
voltage music with hip-gyrating moves! Now with the A-list
actresses being ready to do jatkas and matkas in item numbers,
looks like the B-grade actresses will very soon run out of
Priyanka Chopra's recent Ram Leela number
was a very daring and sensuous song with PeeCee dancing in a bold
avatar. The move in which she buttons up her blouse was much talked
about during the release of the movie. That particular move was
uber hot and sensuous and at the same time shocked us as it was not
something we would usually expect. Similarly there are a number of
shocking moves performed by our Bollywood actresses which make us
Check out the latest Bollywood item girls who shocked us
with their moves...
After a string of flops last year, Pee Cee came to be known as
the newest item girl with some of the most popular dance numbers -
Babli Badmaash and Pinky Hai Paise Walon Ki. But, it was in
Ram-Leela that the actress experimented with a more daring look and
of course, even more sensuous moves. Priyanka's sexy act when she
buttons up her blouse shocked us too!
After dancing her way to Sheila Ki Jawani (wrapped in a bedsheet
that too!), Katrina became the newest item girl to rule box office
numbers. What followed was Chikni Chameli, a sleazy item number
which had her dancing with rowdy men in the background!
Kareena's Halkat Jawani became a nationwide hit with the actress
sizzling on screen in a low-cut choli and pink sari. The masala
item number saw Bebo dance seductively by moving her midriff to the
lyrics of the song - Life ki naughty kahaani, yeh halkat
Deepika received a lot of flak when she danced to a raunchy item
number in the 2011 film Dum Maaro Dum. Those sensuous dance moves
replete with awkward lyrics did not go with her otherwise
girl-next-door image we think. And that tiny skirt and outrageous
tattoo added to the damage!
Of all the item numbers we have listed, this one takes the cake.
If you remember the item number by the bong hottie in Jodi
Breakers, you will know what we are talking about. In the song,
Bipasha Bipasha, the actress provocatively moves her breasts to the
tune of the song. What was she thinking anyway?
Ash did the unimaginable by turning into an item girl with Kajra
Re for the film, Bunty Aur Babli. In the song picturised at a
nightclub, we found the Bachchan bahu shake her booty along with
her husband Abhishek and father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan! Some of
those moves were really provocative!
Kafirana was an obvious hit and the Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi
girl earned herself a ‘bold' tag. The red-hot actress did shock us
with some raunchy dance steps in this lavani-like track.
Even the extremely talented Vidya Balan chose to do an item
number in Vidhu Vinod Chopra's film, Ferrari Ki Sawaari and that
too on the popular Marathi song, Mala Jau De Na. The actress, who
is known for her serious roles wore a nine-yard sari, and performed
did some really sensuous lavani steps in this one.
Malaika's hot item number, Munni Badnam Hui had the actress rub
her back and dance to a ridiculously crass song! Meant obviously
for the masses, this one got the item girl instant fame.
We may not have seen her much on celluloid of late, but PZ has
always managed to be in news. For her sizzling item number in Main
Aur Mrs Khanna, the actress exercised her way to a toned figure and
performed a mujra! Shocked or not?
