1. Mallika Sherawat
Mallika hits the top spot because she appeared in two of the best item numbers of the year. Both are the epitome of what makes an item number exceptional and she looked breathtaking in both films. Everyone raved about her appearance in the song ‘Mehbooba’ from the Himesh Reshammiya debut film Aap Ka Surroor. Though interspersed with other scenes, the best part of the number is set in a campsite around a fire. Her costume reminds you of a gypsy and she looks incredible dancing for the crowd. The choreography is filled with dynamic movements and boy can she dance, especially her hips.
‘Mayya Mayya’ from Guru is probably the most popular and highly praised number of 2007. This part of the film is set in Turkey and Mallika’s character is a dancer in a restaurant. Looking and dancing a bit like a belly dancer she performs on a round-mirrored stage, absolutely ravishing in her gold and red costume with choreography that is fiery and passionate. Mallika absolutely exudes sexiness and this was a perfect example of an item number.
So there you have it, our list of the Top 10 (plus 26) Item Stars. Each star’s number was unique and they all were definitely show-stoppers! The item girl or now boy is part of the Bollywood genre and we cannot wait to see what the new year will bring!
