Kriti Sanon appeared in ‘Kalank’ (2019) in what is often described as an “item number”. However, the actress ha recently spoken about her displeasure with the songs in similar circumstances being referred to with that term.
“Why do people call these songs item numbers is something I really don’t understand. It does not give out good vibes. They are simply dance numbers that add to the entertainment factor of the film. And these songs are loved by people. So why not be little respectful to those who are making these songs and also those who are a part of it,” said Sanon, as reported by Hindustan Times.
She went on to add that the term seems to only be used when it’s a female featuring in such a song, “When Aamir [Khan] sir, Shah Rukh [Khan] sir or Salman [Khan] sir perform a special songs in films they are never called item numbers. Then why changes when a female actor does the same? This mindset need to change”.
Sanon was also seen in a special song in ‘Stree’ which released last year.
