Malaika Arora Khan is indeed the item queen of Bollywood. With smashing hits like Chaiyya Chaiyya and Munni Badnam in her kitty, her absolutely stunning looks and sensational dance moves make her one of the most sought out item girls in Bollywood.
A R Rahman's composition, Sukhwinder Singh's voice, a running train, hills and to add to the sight you've Shah Rukh and Malaika. Yes! We're talking about Chaiyaan Chaiyaan from Dil Se. The song not only highlighted Malaika's curves she also came across as an raunchy beauty in the song. So much so that people still remember her as 'Chaiyaan Chaiyaan girl'.
Malaika's desi avatar has always been a hit and right from day one the song raked up at the chart busters. Her zandu baam step became so famous that almost all the actress' performed at the song at various shows. The song was one of the biggest hits of the year.
Malaika escalated the hotness meter with her scintillating performance in the song. Not only Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor, we all swayed to her moves.
For the second time Malaika was paired up with King Khan for an item number and once again took away the lime light. Malaika was at her sexiest best in the song.
Malaika's oomph factor in the song was a treat to the eyes. We can't expect anyone else to do this number with so much of panache and elegance.
She had thirteen other girls to match up with but Malaika outnumbered all others with her panache and elegant dance moves. In her diva avatar she had all the men saying 'jee lene de is pal ko'.
Richa Sharma's soulful voice and desire in Malaika's eye made this song one of the most popular song of the year. Although the star cast in itself was the highlight, the song made huge waves.
