As a part of our year-end polls, we asked a cross section of people to rate the 2011 item numbers that made them go tizzy with its oomph factor. Here are the poll results
Just as a typical Bollywood movie seems incomplete without an item song, ending 2011 without a special piece on them would be just as abrupt.
An item number along with its mandatory jhatkas and latkas, comes handy not only as a crowd pulling publicity gimmick before the release of the film, but also to up the hotness quotient of the film.
Tere pyaar ne kar diya deewana
In some cases it is also said to have boosted box office openings and has also served as a saving grace for some bad movies.
And if women are ruling the roost with their oomph-appeal, can the men in the male-dominated industry be left behind?
Ooh la la
So if last year's item girls like Munni (Malaika Arora Khan) and Sheela (Katrina Kaif) are conspicuous by their absence in the list this year, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan more than make it up with their nominations.
