There’s a thing about item numbers – they still exist and objectify women. In the past and till date, many actresses have been part of dance numbers which have showcased women dancing around several men and the focus have been on their body parts. In the wake of #MeToo movement, many have called out Bollywood for objectification of women in these dance numbers. Recently, in an interview, Karan Johar admitted that his production house won’t do anymore item songs like Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Chikni Chameli’.
In the interview, Karan mentioned that he has apologised publicly in the past for having item numbers in his movies. He said that it was okay to have female dance numbers but no more item numbers which objectified women with men lusting over them. He even said that he has grown up singing ‘Khambe Jaisi Khadi Hai, Ladki Hai Ya Chadhi Hai‘ and didn’t realise what the song meant. He added that even Aamir Khan, who was a part of the song, had apologized for being a part of such a song. He added that they have to make sure that it doesn’t happen again as film is an impactful medium.
Meanwhile, Katrina Kaif is busy promoting Zero which is set for release on December 21, 2018.
