Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made hearts skip a beat with her performance in “Kajra Re.” While the movie was a flop, this item number was the song of the decade. No doubt this is her favourite song! The love sparks flew between her and Abhishek Bachchan.

She wasn’t sure that she was the right fit for this item number, as “there were a lot of glamourous women in the industry who could do a fabulous song.” But it took convincing from her husband, Arbaaz Khan, who asked her to see the song’s “full potential.” And as she notes, history was made.

3. “Ooh La La” — The Dirty Picture (2011)

This item number features Vidya Balan turning heads alongside veteran Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah. She noted the fun she had working on this film with her co-star Shah. “When we were dancing in the midst of oranges it was hilarious. We were laughing like mad, dancing between pots, posing like old sculptures. We had to roll down a slope. It is not easy, more than (getting) hurt, I couldn’t control my laughter,” Balan reminisced.

4. “Chikni Chameli” — Agneepath (2012)
