Bollywood actress-model Malaika Arora says she never felt objectified while doing special numbers in Bollywood. From "Chaiyya chaiyya", "Maahi ve", "Kaal dhamaal", "Munni badnaam hui" to "Anarkali disco chali", Malaika has done several special numbers for Bollywood projects. "I have always said that we shouldn't tag them or label them as item songs. I have done so many songs and one thing that I would like to share is that I never felt objectified in any of the songs," Malaika said.
"I have done all the songs willingly. I have done the songs knowing what the situation is. But if anybody does feel objectified with the songs then it is important for them to come forward and speak. But personally speaking, I loved the experience of doing all the songs," she added.
Malaika expressed her views while interacting with the media at the launch of Sophie Choudry's new single "Ajj naiyo sawna" on Tuesday here.
Adding to Malaika's statement, Sophie said: "I also don't want to call them 'item numbers' because it reduces their importance... The special song is made on grand scale and it is there to promote the film... Great music and dancing is a huge part of Bollywood culture, so we should consider it as a special song and celebrate it."
Malaika Arora has been ruling the headlines for her alleged relationship with Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor. The couple who are frequently spotted together at various events and dinner dates, have now reportedly planned to move in together. A rumour has been doing rounds on the internet that Arjun and Malaika are planning to move in together and are also looking for a house to live in. As per an India Today report, a source close to the couple said, “Arjun and Malaika are looking for real estate to set up a home together in 2019 after they get married."
