Prakash Jha's HOTTEST item girl? VOTE!
Filmmaker Prakash Jha, known for deftly tackling social issues with his films, is all set for the release of his newest venture Satyagraha.
While Jha's films are rooted in realism, the filmmaker has, more often than not, managed to squeeze in item numbers in the narrative and Satyagraha is no exception.
Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal, the film is a story of the disgruntled middle class raising their voice against the system.
It also features a sizzling item number starring Caucasian hottie Natasa Stankovic with Devgn.
How does she compare with Prakash Jha's erstwhile item girls? VOTE for your favourite at the end of this slideshow!

Sameera Reddy, Chakravyuh
The dusky Sameera Reddy put on a sizzling performance as item girl in Jha's previous film Chakravyuh, starring Abhay Deol and Arjun Rampal.
Slightly out of context in a story rife with struggle in the naxal-infested restive heartlands of West Bengal, the song may have stuck out like a sore thumb but Reddy fulfilled her eye candy duties.

Barkha Bisht, Raajneeti
Before Katrina Kaif's Indu and Ranbir Kapoor's Samar find themselves entrenched in dynasty politics back home, the duo are at a club where the sexy Barkha Bisht dancing on Ishq barse, a semi-classical ditty sung by Hamsika Iyer and Swanand Kirkire.

Maanyata Dutt, Gangaajal
Long before she ditched her real name Dilnawaz Shaikh and settled in marital bliss with Sanjay Dutt, Maanyata Dutt played a village belle doubling up as item girl in the 2005 Jha film Gangaajal.
Dressed in a hot pink outfit and silver jewellery, the former actress left quite an impression in the song Alhad mast jawaani.
