Katrina Kaif says 'never felt objectified in Chikni Chameli' as Karan pledges to not have item songs in films
Katrina Kaif opens up about doing Chikni Chameli after Karan Johar in an interview said that he is apologetic about introducing item songs like Chikni Chameli in his movies. Read on.
Katrina Kaif's journey in Bollywood can very well be trailed to her dance journey. From Chikni Chameli to Sheila Ki Jawani to Kamli, the actress has given some kickass performances which we continue to drool over. As Katrina is all set for the release of her upcoming movie Zero where she plays a superstar, she was asked to comment on a statement made by Karan Johar a couple of months back. In his statement Karan said that he is apologetic of having item songs like Chikni Chameli in his movies and he will never have it henceforth.
Reacting to it, Katrina told DNA that she did not feel objectified or voyeuristic doing that song. "Oh, I didn't know that was said, but I feel very differently on the matter. I feel it's all down to the individual who is performing the song. Madonaa, who I'm sure we all know of, I don't think she is feeling objectified. I don't think Beyonce who performs in a swimsuit on stage is feeling objectified. It's all about how you feel while you are performing that song. I can tell you, I never felt objectified in 'Chikni Chameli'. I enjoyed that song. I enjoyed the dance, I enjoyed what I was doing."
She added, "I didn't even for a moment felt objectified or brought any kind of wrong eyes on me. Not at all...There are many times when people ask me for songs and there's no context to it. I won't do it, nomatter how much I feel about dance. We don't need to characterize it that every song that a woman is celebrating herself and performing, that's not objectifying women. It all depends on the angle and lens it's being seen.”
