Though item songs are on a constant rise in Bollywood despite being under the scanner, Czechoslovakian born Yana Gupta, who sizzled on the big screen in the song "Babuji zaraa dheere chalo", finds nothing wrong with them as "masses love it".

"People enjoy watching item songs, then who is it who decides how moral it is? Item songs are in demand, and that's why they are happening right now. Masses are really interested in these numbers and they love it," Yana told IANS over from London.

The day the audience says "no" to item numbers is the day filmmakers will stop including these in movies, added the 33-year-old, who feels the current take on item songs is "hypocritical".

Besides, she said, it depends on an actors' personal choice to do a song, and how to do it.

"Nobody forces you for anything," said Yana, who admits she was offered a number by a big production house recently, and she chose not to do it.

For now, Yana is upbeat about a new TV show "Life Mein Ek Baar 2", which goes on air on FOX Traveller starting Monday. On a South African adventure with actress Barbara Mori, model-VJ Archana Vijaya, model Diandra Soares and southern actress Kirat Bhattal, Yana had a great time shooting for the show.

She is all for all-girls trips, and believes it can be "an empowering experience for women of all ages".

"It is just about doing something you love doing, and overcoming your fears. So I do feel women should go out and just enjoy doing what they love most," she said.

As part of the show, Yana tried adventures sports like scuba diving, shark cage diving, helicopter ride and bungee jumping.

Bungee jumping is something she never liked, even when she was a part of a former adventure reality show "Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi". However, she says "Life Mein Ek Baar 2" has cured her of that fear.

On the Bollywood front, she said she is in talks for something "interesting", but "it's too early to talk about it". However, she definitely believes "showbiz is more open-minded now" and ready for "out-of-the-box" offerings, which makes it a wonderful time to be a part of it.
