Malaika Arora Khan, happy 39th birthday!

Bollywood’s fave item queen turns a year older today and we hope she has a wonderful time with family and friends

Born on October 23, 1973, model-turned-item girl Malaika Arora Khan is currently judging the fourth season of  TV show India’s Got Talent on Colors. From being a VJ to walking the runway and starring in commercials, Malaika has had quite a diverse and interesting career. She went on to try her hand in grooving to pacey item numbers and judging reality shows. Her first item song – Chhaiyya chhaiyya from Dil Se – in which she danced atop a train with Shahrukh Khan has been one of the most famous Bollywood item numbers. Her other popular numbers include Mahi ve from Kaante.

Married to actor-producer Arbaaz Khan who she met on the sets of an ad they starred in together, Malaika has a son named Arhaan with him. Considered as one of the hottest and yummiest B-town mommies, Malaika looks slim and sexy even at 39. She came in to the limelight again dancing to the smash hit Munni badnaam hui from her husband’s production Dabangg starring her famous brother-in-law Salman Khan.

Malaika was last seen shaking her booty to Anarkali disco chali (Housefull 2) along with Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Riteish Deshmukh. We wish the babe the best of luck for all her future endeavours, and hope she continues entertaining us with the same infectious energy and enviable zest!
