India, April 4 -- Sunny Leone's much-awaited item number from Shootout At Wadala is out. The two-minute long sequence shows Sunny Leone seducing John Abraham as she croons 'Laila Teri Le Legi'. Contrary to Babli Badmaash, this one is clearly racier and bolder. Sunny Leone's song is the usual desi Bollywood item number fare while Priyanka's is tame and err... not crass.
Bollywood is increasingly sexualized and item songs reflect this trend like no other aspect of films these days. Whether it was Kareena Kapoor's Halkat Jawani and Fevicol Se or Katrina Kaif's Sheila Ki Jawani and Chikni Chameli, mainstream has become used to objectifying women like never before. But the question is whether Sunny Leone's song just raised the bar on vulgarity some more? Take the poll and tell us:

Sneak peek: Sunny Leone in Shootout At Wadala item song
When news reports emerged about Sunny Leone doing a special song in director Sanjay Gupta's Shootout At Wadala, everyone assumed that it would be just another item number. However, apparently, the song and Sunny's character have an important role in the movie.
And the track called 'Laila' has been picturised keeping a real incident in mind. Sanjay says, "This song is not a quintessential item song. In fact, I think it's derogatory to term a song an item number. 'Laila' is extremely crucial to the film and the twists and turns in the storyline. Back in the day, there used to be a dancer at the Congress House in south Mumbai. Sunny's character is based on her." READ STORY

POLL: does Priyanka Chopra's Babli Badmaash disappoint?
Priyanka Chopra sizzles in Babli Badmaash from upcoming gangster thriller Shootout At Wadala. Although, the song doesn't do much, Priyanka looks glamorous. Considering the intensity of vulgarity in item numbers, Babli Badmaash is less explicit and doesn't even have double meaning lyrics.
If we talk about the music, it lacks the catchy element in it. Priyanka Chopra pulls off the song quite well though. VOTE HERE
