Item numbers are considered a hit formula for Bollywood. From 'Chikni Chameli' to 'Lovely', these tracks have been superhits because of their catchy music and not-to-forget the item girls.
But while some like Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone excelled at item numbers, there were a few leading ladies who missed the mark.
"Tevar" actress Sonakshi Sinha was unable to show the right tevar (attitude) for her item number 'Thank God It's Friday'. It was from the flop Sajid Khan film "Himmatwala". The film was already a disaster and on top of that, the item song was a dud too.
Shraddha Kapoor is cute, beautiful and sexy, but her charm didn't work as an item girl. Her item song 'Basanti' in Emraan Hashmi's film "Ungli" failed to impress the viewers. Now, the actress is going to appear in Remo D'Souza's dance film "ABCD 2". We hope that the actress does justice to that.
The South Indian diva Shruti Haasan failed to win votes as an item girl when she appeared in 'Madamiya' with Arjun Kapoor in the film "Tevar."
One of the most promising actresses of Bollywood, Mahie Gill, had wowed the audience with her performance in "Dev D". But, the actress failed badly as an item girl when she shook a leg in Saif Ali Khan's "Bullet Raja".
The smoking-hot Chitrangada Singh might have done only a handful of movies, but her performance has always been brilliant. However, the leggy lass failed to sizzle in item song 'Kafirana' from Akshay Kumar starrer "Joker".
