The dream girl of Indian cinema, Hema Malini, feels there is no need for top notch actresses to endorse item songs.
"It's not my taste but people's taste has changed. What to do? People love to see all that. But I would like to say one thing that the big heroines who have earned a name for themselves don't need to do item numbers. There are a lot of other people to do item numbers," she said at an event celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema in Mumbai.
Hema does not personally like them and added: "The whole meaning of item numbers has changed from our time. Now they are 'Munni badnaam' and some 'Jalebi' and people like it. I personally don't like these songs."
Hema, 63, has earned a name for herself in filmdom for her beautiful and charismatic dancing and acting abilities. She started her career with 1968 movie "Sapnon Ka Saudagar" and in her more than four decade career, she has done numerous films in like "Seeta Aur Geeta" and "Sholay" which earned her great acclaim at the box office.
Hema is an acclaimed bharatanatayam dancer and does solo stage performances as well as with her two daughters - Esha and Ahana Deol.
"After Madhuri and Sridevi, I think Aishwarya is a nice dancer. She has done some good work. Vidya Balan is also nice. I have not seen anyone after that," said the actress who runs a classical dance institute Natyavihar Kalakendra.

She oftenly critise the current bollywood trend in movies from looks, dance, acting etc and I somewhat agree with her. Then she has the chance to do something about it and she gives us Tell me oh Khuda. I mean what the heck, everyting she is so agaisnt about was in that movie!
This might be mean, but honest. I feel todays heroine really do need to do an item number. not only tht, they evn need to have a good body, since there r no good heroines these days. This is the only way they get appreciated. I have stopped watching Bwood movies since long i do not feel it's worth watching anymore but maybe coz im a girl. If the indian cinema want to remain the current audience (males mostly these days) they really have got to make more item number.
she said for big heroeins.. esha is not big heroien.. so her dhoom song doesnt count..
kareena's chamak challo was not good cause she can not dance.. maryam zakarya is good for item dance.
Hema-ji, it's all to do with money, for doing just 1 item number, a established actress can earn nearly as much as doing a whole film... SO WHY NOT DO A ITEM NUMBER...
