New Delhi: Veteran actor Shabana Azmi has taken a dig at item numbers in Bollywood and has targeted Kareena Kapoor Khan’s raunchy item number from Dabangg 2. Shabana said, “I have reservations against item numbers. That’s because I think if a top most heroine is singing:
“Main to tanduri main to tanduri murgi hoon yaar, Gatkale saiyan alcohol se” (‘I am tandoori murgi, swallow me down with alcohol’, it’s not a laughing matter. It’s a serious issue.”)
“One person wrote the song, a few more got it made but it was watched by crores of people. They also saw their 6-year old kids singing and dancing on it. Don’t you have a responsibility? It’s not fun”, added the 65-year-old actor.
The lyrics Shabana Azmi mentioned are from Kareena Kapoor’s item number ‘Fevicol se’ from the film Dabangg 2. Azmi has been vocal about her opinions in the past as well, but this is the first time she has taken such a direct dig at a felloe actor.
