From "Chaiyya chaiyya", "Maahi ve", "Kaal dhamaal", "Munni badnaam hui" to "Anarkali disco chali", Malaika has done several special numbers for Bollywood projects. 

"I have always said that we shouldn't tag them or label them as item songs. I have done so many songs and one thing that I would like to share is that I never felt objectified in any of the songs," Malaika said. 

"I have done all the songs willingly. I have done the songs knowing what the situation is. But if anybody does feel objectified with the songs then it is important for them to come forward and speak. But personally speaking, I loved the experience of doing all the songs," she added. 

Malaika expressed her views while interacting with the media at the launch of Sophie Choudry's new single "Ajj naiyo sawna" on Tuesday here.

Adding to Malaika's statement, Sophie said: "I also don't want to call them 'item numbers' because it reduces their importance... The special song is made on grand scale and it is there to promote the film... Great music and dancing is a huge part of Bollywood culture, so we should consider it as a special song and celebrate it."

Hiding her image of being called as not actor but a girl performing item no. Objectified is dignified term of being cruised. You can't do any more than item no. anyway. Well, you started the most disgraceful image of females in bollywood by doing tacky item nos. and that is the reason for Me Too# and females in bollywood get mistreated that way. Shame on you!

Sorry but she is just saving face. She very well knew what she was doing. Munni badnaam hui darling were liye was the lyric of the song.. what is she smoking?

This is really sad from her side, she lives in a bubble. Item numbers are there unfortunately to objectify women who are wearing short clothes, call themselves tandoori chicken for example.. I guess she likes the attention more than the responsibility movies have.
