Item numbers were once only for vamps or the villain's arm-candy but no more. Bollywood's top actors are now ready to sizzle and make their mark as the 'hottest' item girl. Check out our top picks:
Aishwarya's dance moves have always been talked about but her 'Kajra re' item number with Big B and Abhishek had the nation grooving along.
Bipasha's dance numbers in 'Omkara' had the country dancing to her moves and her role as the sizzling village belle was much appreciated.
Three years after her superhit item number 'Honth Rasile' in 'Welcome', Malaika Arora put on her dancing shoes for husband Arbaaz Khan's debut production 'Dabangg'. Not only was the song a superhit, it also entered the Guinness Book of World Record in Melbourne.
Katrina's 'Sheila' was pitched against Malaika's 'Munni' and while the debate is still on about which one is the better song, Kat surely did scorch onscreen in this one.
After her sultry moves in 'Maiya maiya', Mallika's 'Razia' was supposed to challenge 'Munni' and 'Sheila' and now she will sizzle as 'Jalebi bai' in 'Double Dhamaal'.
Deepika's item number in the forthcoming 'Dum Maaro Dum' has created quite a buzz already. While Zeenat seems disappointed with the remake, the audience response is yet to come in.
