One of Bollywood’s hotties Malaika Arora is always in the news these days. While the India’s Got Talent judge hasn’t been seen on the big screen since long, it’s her latest interview, that’s grabbing eyeballs on social media. Well, the lady has sizzled in several item songs like Chaiyya Chaiyya from Bombay, Maahi Ve from Kaante, Munni Badnaam from Dabangg, Anarkali Disco Chali from the multi-starrer Housefull amongst many others. You may fondly want to call her one of the most popular ‘item girls’, the lady outright refuses to acknowledge the term.
In a recent conversation with Anupama Chopra, the actress spoke about anything and everything. Talking about doing item songs, she said, “Whenever I did in a song I did it on my own. I never did it under duress, I was comfortable. If I felt I wasn’t not okay with something, I’d voice my opinion. I’d say no I don’t like this step, or if I felt I was being objectified in any way I’ll say it.”
Malla further added, “I always had a problem with it being called an item song. Imagine somebody turning around on me and saying, ‘kya item hai.’ I would want to turn around and slap that person. I have a problem with the terminology.”
On the personal front, Malaika is dating Arjun Kapoor, who will next be seen in the films India’s Most Wanted and Panipat.The couple have pushed their wedding ahead as Arjun is busy with the post-production of his film.
