Malaika Arora Khan: I find the term ‘item song’ derogatory

Malaika Arora Khan, whose popular dance numbers like Chaiyya chaiyya, Munni badnam hui have raised the bar for her contemporaries to match her style, finds the item girl tag “derogatory and silly”.

“I don’t like the term ‘item girl’… Why not look at it (item song) as a special song?…A song that is creating a hype and entertainment. I find it derogatory and silly,” Malaika said in an interview.

Unlike in the past, currently mainstream heroines like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and others are also doing special songs in different films.

When asked if the leading ladies are intruding the space, Malaika said she did not think so.

“There is enough work for everyone. Everybody has a role or part to play, if somebody fits the bill that is what matters,” she added.

Malaika, whose song Munni badnam hui in Bollywood film Dabangg (2010) was a hit, says nothing interesting has come up in terms of special dance numbers.

The actor is back to judge yet another season of television series of reality show, India’s Got Talent.

“Last time, I was there for half the season. This time I am getting the feel of everything as I am there from beginning. Previously, I was there from elimination part and it was tough. This time it is insane amount of work. In a day we have 20-25 acts minimum,” Malaika said.

On the talent pool at India’s Got Talent, she said some of the acts pulled off by contestants in the current fifth season are breathtaking.

“Some of the acts this season are hysterical, beyond anyone’s comprehension. The acts are breathtaking, mind blowing, death defying and amazing. I don’t think there is any show which provides you a platform to showcase varied kind of talent from all over the country,” she said.

Malaika says disqualifying contestants is a tough call.
