Priyanka Chopra has a go at a sensual cabaret dance in Gunday. Is she any good? Vote now!

Dance, in all its forms and moods, is an integral part of traditional Indian storytelling.

Back when the expression ‘item number’ wasn’t coined, Bollywood relied on the sizzle of Helen’s cabaret dance to spice up its potboilers. Quite a few have tried to emulate the dance icon and her brand of flamboyance since.

Priyanka Chopra is the latest hottie to join the ranks with her dazzling turn in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Gunday.

What do you think? Yay or nay? Take this poll and vote for the most smouldering cabaret dancer of Hindi films at the end of this slide show.

Parveen Babi may not have much of a role to speak of in Namak Halal.

Even then the stunner attracts attention in her sleek, glitzy avatar as the cabaret dancer who teases with her innate sensuality in the foot-tapping Jawaani Jaaneman and Raat Baaki.

'Mera Naam Hai Shabnam,' yelps a voluptuous Bindu unleashing a raw, unabashed sexiness while persuasively gyrating to Kati Patang’s enticing ditty in a snugs bodysuit.
