At one point in time, one must realise that nothing stays the same forever and the film industry is no exception to prove this statement true. The audience get bored of seeing the same things over and over again on screen and the same happened with item numbers.
Though we have been witnessing various kinds of movies hitting the screens, the number of commercial movies that are being made is not getting affected. One of the most popular elements in the commercial flicks is the item songs.
The fast beat songs, spicy lyrics and glamorous girls are something that the movie lovers can never get enough of. But do you remember the last item girl you have ever seen on screen?
Well, in the past there used to be a particular set of ladies who are only visible in item numbers. Whether it was Jaya Malini in the 80s or Mumaith Khan in the 2000s, those are called as item bombs and would glitter in item songs only.
Mumaith Khan who danced in some chartbusters like Ippatikinkaa naa vayasu and Nora Fatehi who danced beside Prabhas in Manohari song can be considered as the last of their kind. Nora has done 3-4 songs later and then vanished.
But things have changed these days. The heroines who are playing the leading ladies are now doing the item songs. Whether it is Anjali in Sarrainodu, Kajal in Janatha Garage or Shruthi Hassan in Aagadu, actresses are taking over the place of item bombs in the industry. With female leads themselves taking up their jobs leaving the poor item girls with zero work, these specialist dancers are nowhere found.
In upcoming Rangasthalam, whose director Sukumar is famous for churning out item numbers, got Pooja Hegde on board to sizzle as Jigel Rani. We have to see if someone will get rid of heroines and bring any special girls yet again. #KhabarLive
