She’s not known as the best dancer in tinsel town but actor-singer Priyanka Chopra truly surprised us with her dance moves. Asalaam E Ishqum, Ram Chahe Leela, Pinky, Babli Badmaash, Exotic or In My City – just look at her recent songs! Whether from her own music albums or movies, or item numbers in films where she is not the heroine, PeeCee has consistently worked hard just to show us what she is capable of on the dance floor. So, is Priyanka Chopra the new dancing queen of Bollywood? We take a look at her song videos to figure out.
Asalaam E Ishqum song from Gunday (watch video)
By far her best dance number we feel. Priyanka Chopra looks absolutely confident and superhot in this cabaret number, with black shimmer outfit and smokey eyes. She takes the awesome choreography by Bosco-Caesar several notches higher with her dance. The lyrics are Indian but the entire tone and setting of the song is very international – and so is Priyanka, apni ‘Exotic’ export! She steals the thunder away from actors Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh – who’re just playing their part of Indian gunday of the 1970s and look unimpressive.

Without doing too much, again unlike Katrina in Chikni Chameli, Priyanka manages to be a treat to the senses in this number. She is at her sensual best.
Pinky song from Zanjeer (watch video)
Although her movie Zanjeer flopped badly, her item song Pinky was hot and happening with a skimpily clad Priyanka dancing to Bambaiyya beats. The lyrics might seem vulgar, but the video didn’t – unlike her rival Katrina Kaif’s Chikni Chameli. Pinky made PeeCee’s ‘World famous glamour’ – as mentioned in the song – even more so. (Incidentally Pinky is sung by Munni Badnaam Hui singer Mamta Sharma.)

PeeCee went retro and did an Amitabh Bachchan here with that outfit of hers. The play of lights in the song – on the sets and also Priyanka’s dress – was uber cool. Priyanka tried her best to play the sexy seductress with her moves in an LBD too, but the song’s very laidback tune let her down.

Priyanka did well with her typical music video dance steps – not very original – in her singles In My City and Exotic.
