PIX: Meet the sexy Lailas of Bollywood!
But the name Laila tops its lyrical vocabulary more than any other.
Perhaps it's the love struck, rebellious streak symbolising Laila that appeals to the makers producing a hotter, saucier version for screen.
And now there's a new Laila in town -- Sunny Leone.
The curvy star who made her Hindi film debut in Jism 2 returns with another sizzling appearance for Sanjay Gupta's Shootout at Wadala.
While her scorching jhatkas were exempt from moral scanning, censors lay objection over the suggestive lyrics prompting them to change it from Laila teri le gi to Laila tujhe loot legi. "
Here's a look at some of the other provocative Lailas of tinsel town.

But Mallika Sherawat sure likes to frequently remind us of her spice girl ways with item songs as Razia, Jalebi bai or Laila.

And that is precisely what she does in the only tantalizing moment of the otherwise coy comedy.

Regardless of its obscure stature, Bloody Isshq features model-turned-actress Tripta Parashar shaking her booty to the beats of Danger hai Laila.

Though the thriller didn't quite thrive, the item number did fairly well for itself.

Forget the rest, here's the real deal.
Remember Zeenat Aman's glamorous rendition of the super hit Laila o Laila with Amjad Khan's feverish drumming in the backdrop?
The chartbuster continues to be one of the highpoints of Qurbani and a fond memory for 'Zeenie Baby Fanclub'.
