Malaika Arora Khan, happy birthday!

The gorgeous Bollywood item girl turns 39 today

Born on August 23, 1973, Malaika Arora Khan started her Bollywood career with an item number in Shahrukh Khan-starrer Dil Se. The number Chaiyya chaiyya – in which she shook her booty atop a train along with SRK – turned out to be quite a hit number. Although Malaika hasn’t really done a full-fledged role in a Hindi movie, she has quite successfully managed to be labelled as the most sought-after item gal in B-town with quite a few hit songs to her credit. Married to actor-producer Arbaaz Khan (superstar Salman Khan’s brother), Malaika has a son named Arhaan with him. The couple first met while shooting for an ad for a coffee brand, and fell in love.

Malaika’s item song in the blockbuster film Dabangg Munni badnam hui – was quite a chartbuster. The babe recently performed on a pacey number in Housefull 2 Anarkali disco chali. She has also judged many dance reality shows and made her appearance felt in numerous fashion shows. We wish Malaika a very happy birthday and the best of luck!
