Happy birthday, Malaika Arora Khan!

She is the queen of item numbers, has been voted the sexiest mom in B-town and makes it to the covers of almost every style mag. Here’s wishing the Munni lady a happy birthday and a wonderful year ahead

When ‘Chhaiyaan chhaiyaan’ first aired on TV, everyone wanted to know – who is that girl with the most fab bod matching steps with Shahrukh Khan? Malaika Arora went on to become a rage and she still continues to make men drool. Though she is known for her item numbers, all of them are tasteful and classy. She is not just an item girl, because she juggles many hats and each with unmatched grace. She endorses products, judges dance reality shows, makes cameo appearances in films and recently turned into a National Award-winning producer along with her husband, Arbaaz Khan, for Dabangg. She has gone on record to say that she has no qualms about being labelled an ‘item- queen’. After rocking the nation with her sizzling performance as Munni in Dabangg, Malaika is all set to scorch the screens yet again with her next wiggle-jiggle paisa-vasool foray in Sajid Khan’s upcoming Housefull 2. Having carved out her niche, Malaika has become extremely choosy about the projects she picks, and is treading cautiously to avoid losing her new-found stardom to item overkill. The Housefull offer tempted her, she has said, because the song is being choreographed by Farah Khan, the woman behind much of Malla’s glory. We wish the sizzling item lady a wonderful day and a happening year ahead…
