This seems to be the season of Item Girls in Bollywood. Kabhi Munni Badnaam Hui aur Kabhi Shiela Jawan Hui. Aur Kahin to Razia gundon mei phas gai. Way to go is, Sheila and Munni for Bollywood says Shivani Bhattacharya.
The year 2010 was ruled by likes of sheila and munni. Inspite of the fact that Tees Maar Khan failed to make its presence felt at the box-office, Kat’s sheila ki jawani is still on everyone’s mind. Salman -Sonakshi starrer Dabbang set the cash registers ringing as Salman carried the film on his shoulders very well , the item number Munni badnam not just got people excited about the movie,but also brought Malaika back in the limelight.
Enter 2011,and seems like the item girls are back in action. Thank you, starring Akshay and Bobby in the lead roles, has got sex bomb Mallika Sherawat dancing to the tunes of “Razia gundon mei phas gai”. Dressed in a black and silver shimmery outfit, Mallika is seen matching steps with the lead stars. The song is already a hit amongst the masses and people are waiting in anticipation for the release.
Dum Maaro Dum, another upcoming project from the Sippy’s camp and starring Prateik Babbar and Bipasha Basu in the lead roles, has got Deepika Padukone, dancing to the yester years popular song “dum maaro dum”. Dressed in an itsy-bitsy mini skirt, Deepika’s already making news. With bold lines and foot tapping music, the song has become a hit.
Upcoming Item Songs to watch for
- Razia gundon mei phas gai (Mallika Sherawat)

Item songs have been age old trick of attracting audience’s to the multiplexes. Nobody can forget Shilpa Shetty’s” dhinchak desi “ item number “UP Bihar lootne” that gave a jumpstart to Shilpa’s sinking career.
While on one hand, item numbers attract crowds, they also work a great deal in uplifting the careers of many B-town actresses.Well as long as the film does well, and the crowd goes back smiling from the multiplexes, we are not complaining. Way to go, Sheila and Munni…!!!
