PIX: Meet the sexy Lailas of Bollywood!

Monica, Munni, Chameli, Sheila or Laila, Bollywood loves its item girls.

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.

Mallika Sherawat

Been a while since Bollywood's erstwhile sex symbol did a full-fledged role.

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

Though she slips in the skimpiest of costumes, the Laila ditty from Tezz fizzled just like the movie.

Yana Gupta

In the remixed version of Qurbani's Laila, Yana Gupta gyrates her svelte frame with all-out passion in a bid to grab eyeballs.

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

Tripta Parasher

Very few have heard of forget seen this movie.

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

Hot or hopeless?

Lucy Bartholomew

This desi rip-off of Se7en starring Sushmita Sen and Jackie Shroff featured Irish import Lucy Bartholomew, swinging to the catchy track, Laila Laila.

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

Zeenat Aman

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'.
