MUMBAI: 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. Malini does not like items songs, “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.” Malini, 63, has earned a name for herself in filmdom.
