The entertainment factor an item song brings goes a long way in marketing and publicity of a film. Filmmakers are paying huge amounts to leading ladies in Bollywood for an item song. Hot item girls often dance to catchy

upbeat tunes. Item songs may appear in a movie any time without any relevance to plot or story. When the item song craze had just begun, there were girls who were roped in only for item numbers and were not part of the movie.

In present times, leading ladies in Bollywood have stamped their authority in every item song scenario. Items songs often include provocative dance sequences in the backdrop of foot taping music and suggestive lyrics. The racy images of item girls dancing in an item song are often shot aesthetically. While the meaning of “item song” refers to a sexualized song, the term has earned a broad spectrum in terms of perspective.
