If it wasn’t for the item-girl tag, Bollywood actor Raveena Tandon could have stepped into the shoes of Malaika Arora Khan and danced on the roof of the train in the popular item-number Chaiya Chaiya from Dil Se (1998).
“Incidentally!! Chaiya chaiya was offered to me first!! I’d already done many songs that I said no to this, afraid will be labelled item girl! ha ha (sic),” Tandon posted on her Twitter page.
However, the Sheher Ki Ladki will now be seen grooving to an item number in Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Bbuddah... Hoga Tera Baap.
