Of late, the role of ‘item number’ in films has been taken over by the heroines themselves as most of them don’t mind in shedding their clothes and dancing for ‘item number’ songs. They choose to do so in films starring frontline heroes and for friends, thus rendering the real ‘item number’ girls jobless!
Yesteryear’s heroine ‘Silk’ Smitha was the ultimate seductress and ‘item number’ girl of Kollywood for more than three decades now. Though many before and after her have appeared in films in Kollywood, few could make the audiences excited and arouse their desires as ‘Silk’ Smitha managed to do so almost effortlessly.
Mumaith Khan has proved her mettle as ‘item number’ girl and has many hit films to her credit including Kandasamy, Pokkiri and Thalai Nagaram. She also starred in various other language films. She hasn’t been in the best of form for the past few years and is now making a comeback after a long time by dancing for an ‘item number’ in Jai Akash’s upcoming film titled as Amavasaai.
Made trilingual in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi and starring Jai Akash in the lead, the film is produced and directed by Rakesh Savant. Syed Ahmed is the film’s music director. The film also has a bevy of beauties including Saakshi Shogan, Preeti Singh, Tanya Maurya, Rubi Khan and Seema Singh besides our own Mumaith!
