As part of the promotional campaign, a teaser trailer of the Kareena Kapoor Khan item number “Mera Naam Mary” was released on July 6, and it immediately generated tons of Bollywood buzz. Choreographed by Ganesh Acharya of “Chikni Chameli” fame, “Mera Naam Mary” looks likely to be just as popular as the Katrina Kaif item number we all know and love from “Agneepath.”
After watching this teaser, you are more than likely going to rack your brain for Khan’s other item numbers. So, to make your life a little easier, we went ahead and did the hard work for you—here is a look back at the many songs that have contributed to Khan’s item number repertoire.
1. “It’s Rocking” from “Kya Love Story Hai”
This hit Alisha Chinoy song is one of the most memorable moments from this 2007 film featuring actors Ayesha Takia and Tusshar Khan. And if you had not already noticed, “It’s Rocking” is a modern remix of the classic Rafi-Asha Bhosle duet “Ude Ude Jab Zulfein Teri” from the 1957 Dilip Kumar and Vyjayanthimala starrer “Naya Daur.”
2. “Marjaani” from “Billu”
This 2009 Priyadarshan movie starring Irrfan Khan had two high-profile item numbers: “Marjaani” featured Khan, while “Love Mera Hit Hit” featured Deepika Padukone. Both item numbers had Shahrukh Khan opposite the ladies in question, and there is no forgetting the ridiculously catchy lyrics in both of these Pritam songs.
3. “Fevicol Se” from “Dabangg 2”
In 2012, Salman Khan’s blockbuster “Dabangg 2” introduced Khan to the world as the “Fevicol Se” dancer. If you did not have a clue about this brand of Indian glue before this item number, you were likely to never be able to forget about fevicol after Khan’s performance.
Apparently, for a certain chief judicial magistrate in Bihar, “Fevicol Se” was provocative enough to deserve an FIR due to its “vulgarity.” Too bad government officials like this are too busy watching item numbers and passing ridiculous judgments instead of actually working towards real change for women in India.
4. “Chinta Ta Ta Chita Chita” from “Rowdy Rathore”
This 2012 action thriller flick was directed by the legendary Prabhu Deva and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Akshay Kumar charmed audiences as the title character, and he was briefly accompanied by Khan in the catchy “Chinta Ta Ta Chita Chita” number. Blink and you will miss her item number appearance that appears towards the end of the movie.
5. “Teri Meri Kahaani” from “Gabbar is Back”
Probably the most unconventional of all of Khan’s item numbers, “Teri Meri Kahaani” was really more of a special appearance in song form.
“Teri Meri Kahani” chronicles the story of Khan and Kumar’s onscreen romance in “Gabbar is Back” that culminated in tragedy. This tragedy then sends Kumar’s Professor Aditya on his mission as Gabbar, and the rest is box office history.
