Priyanka Chopra’s Babli Badmaash item song – a sad comedown for Sanjay Gupta
Cineswami takes a look at the various item numbers from Sanjay Gupta’s films and thinks that Babli Badmaash is nowhere close to them in terms of entertainment
There was a time when Sanjay Gupta could do no wrong. He looked at the existing methods of shooting songs, ripped apart the rulebook, threw it away, spat on his hands and set about reinventing with gusto. We’re, of course, referring to Kaante and specifically the songs Maahi ve and Ishq samundar. The way Gupta and his team interpreted it, the visuals were slick, sensual, classy and blew whatever little competition there was out of the water. Click here to read more
Kareena Kapoor’s style in Heroine: Quite over-the-topAs Bebo steps into the shoes of a diva in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Heroine, we take a look at the kind of style she has adopted in the film
Kareena Kapoor looks like an ultimate prima donna in the promos of Heroine. Her hair’s always set, she looks stylish from tip to toe and that star-like attitude is quite prominent in the way she carries herself. Click here to read more
Katrina Kaif is still the sexiest woman in the world!
The Ek Tha Tiger seductress has been crowned the sexiest woman on the planet by popular men’s magazine FHM. We bet you just can’t take your eyes off this delicious cover
She rules our dark fantasies unquestionably. Just visualise the slender waist of the quintessential Sheila or the well-choreographed booty of Chikni Chameli and you will know why Katrina Kaif never ceases to capture our collective imagination. Click here to read more
Why is Katrina Kaif such a confused mess?
We mean fashion-wise, of course. The gorgeous babe was recently spotted at a Khan family bash. And, trust us, it looked like she somehow gathered bits and pieces from her closet and wrapped it around herself!
Seems like Kat is in no mood to live up to the sobriquets she’s been given. The way Katrina Kaif was dressed at the do she was headed to, we are sure Chikni Chameli and sexy Sheila will very soon be replaced with names like Gaffe Gal and Chaotic Chamya. Although the babe is receiving rave reviews for her new item number in Agneepath , we think she’s taking the role of the rustic chick way too seriously. Click here to read more
Manoj Bajpayee to do an item number?
Amitabh Bachchan landed co-star in trouble by declaring an item song that featured Manoj Bajpayee. Media grilled Bajpayee endlessly over Sr Bachchan’s quip. What happened then?
Prakash Jha’s film Aarakshan had been in the news, mostly for all the wrong reasons, but this one really made us laugh. Apparently in a television interview, Amitabh Bachchan was asked if there was any item number in the film. Tongue firmly in cheek, Mr Bachchan said that Manoj Bajpayee was doing an item song in the film and Bajpayee played along saying that he was the ‘item boy’. See if you can spot this item number in the movie on YouTube Boxoffice. Little did he know that the media will hound him endlessly to know all about his so-called ‘item number’.

What does Malaika Arora Khan’s ‘Munni’ say?
Remember Mera naam Chin Chin Chu? That was probably the first time an ‘item girl’ introduced herself. While Chin Chin Chu does sound ‘different’, the names of item girls haven’t really taken the sensible route since then. But now we’ve moved a step further and attached certain messages to names that are much more than just hatke
It’s okay if you want to coin names that are catchy and colloquial, but you can’t deny that the acts that follow do raise eyebrows. While Chin Chin Chu didn’t come with a list of complaints or secrets attached, nowadays it seems as if all item girls (or boys) want to put their point across in a very effective manner indeed. So if you think the point got lost amidst rising hemlines, sinuous curves and oodles of bling, here’s a little help to sort out just who is doing what…..Click here to read more
Nicole Kidman to do a Bollywood item number for just Rs 5 crore?
The Hollywood star might have another connection with B-town after Moulin Rouge!
It is not just Tom Cruise who has an India connection now (thanks to MI4). His ex-wife and Hollywood star Nicole Kidman is apparently a part of an upcoming Bollywood project directed by Rumi Jaffery. Reportedly, the Australia star has been approached by Jaffery to do a desi item number in his forthcoming film Gali Gali Mein Chor Hai. Bollywood is not new to Nicole. In her film Moulin Rouge, Anu Malik’s item song Chamma Chamma from China Gate had been used by director Baz Luhrmann with full credits. Kidman had also appeared in an ad with RA.One hottie Arjun Rampal and Slumdog Millionaire child star Rubina Ali. Click here to read more
Kangna Ranaut says no to item numbers
The actor is not very fascinated with the idea of being labelled as an item girl, but then what makes her opt for mindless dance numbers, which wethink are worse than item performances
She played the ultimate blonde in Rascals and grooved on some tacky songs that had abysmal lyrics. She didn’t mind putting on those ungraceful dancing shoes in Double Dhamaal either. We also witnessed her sashaying around from one spot to the other in the name of dancing in No Problem. Now we really fail to figure Ms Kangana’s condescending attitude towards item numbers.

Ranbir-Katrina-Salman: inexplicable love triangle?
Is it professionalism or just the insecurity of giving up some of the best projects in B-town? This is one question we would like to ask Katrina Kaif, who will very soon be seen doing two new movies with her ex-beaus
Ek Tha Tiger with Salman Khan and director Ayaan Mukherjee’s next with Ranbir Kapoor are going to keep the sexy Sheila busy for the next few months. Click here to read more
No ‘item numbers’ for Asin
Unlike other glam gals, Salman’s Ready co-star comes across as someone who won’t be doing ‘anything’ for films. The actor has her own set of rules
Most of her contemporaries would jump to get themselves an ‘item gal’ title, like a Munni, Sheila or Jalebi bai, but Asin, who prefers not to follow the crowd, doesn’t want one. Click here to read more
Mallika Sherawat chucks her diet for hot jalebis!
On the last day of the shoot, the entire unit of Double Dhamaal celebrated with jalebis, inspired from Mallika’s item song in the film
Being an actor is a tough job, but being an item girl is tougher. You have to work out like a maniac and be extremely careful with your diet if you want to maintain your stick thin figure and build a sexy image. In any case, the camera adds five kilos to your existing frame! Click here to read more
