Helen or Mallika: Who rocks Mehbooba?
June 26, 2007
Nobody belly dances better than the original 'item' girl, Helen.
The dancer and actress sizzled in the 1960s and 1970s in films like Don, Howrah Bridge, Teersi Manzil and Caravan.
She wriggled her hips in the Mehbooba Mehbooba song from the classic Sholay, distracting the dreaded bandit Gabbar Singh and the audience as well.
Now, Mallika Sherawat [Images] takes on the original in Himesh Reshammiya's upcoming film, Aap Ka Surroor.
Looking lovely in green, the outspoken actress sways and shakes her hips to Reshammiya's rendition of Mehbooba.
But hips don't lie.
So, who is the better mover and shaker? Is it Helen, the original Mehbooba girl, or Mallika, the oomph girl?
