After perfomance of Malaika Arora in famous song ‘Chaiyan Chaiyan’, she never looked back and continue to do item numbers. She has not just dancing skills but also has very stunning voice.
In a recent podcast interview, Malaika defended the entire notion of item numbers in Bollywood. These are only depictions of the Indian films’ vibrant and over-the-top style. Moreover, she recognised that the notion has shrunk in today’s world. There’s a lot of focus these days on not having to objectify anything.
Malaika Arora went on to say that she had never felt objectified n doing item numbers. To the contrary, she relished the sensation of being the focus of someone’s attention. She felt like she had the upper hand. She says she’s always been a person who enjoys having everything under her control. Moreover, She dislikes being told what to do, how to do it, or where to go.
Her friend Farah Khan persuaded Malaika to join the cast of “Chaiyaan Chaiyaan”. The deal was simply too excellent to pass up. Her co-star Shah Rukh Khan, director Mani Ratnam, composer AR Rahman, and cinematographer Santosh Sivan involved in the project.
She has also done a number of item songs including ‘Munni Badnaam’ and ‘Anarkali Disco Chali. She is now dating actor Arjun Kapoor after divorce from her husband.
