Meet Bollywood's sizzling new item girl

May 13, 2010 10:03 IST

Say hello to Bollywood's new item girl, the lovely Barkha Bisht, who can be seen next month in Prakash Jha's Raajneeti, dancing in a sizzling item number.

Bisht is no stranger to cameras -- she's an established television actress who plays Dhani/Devi Bhairavi in the Star Plus serial, Sajan Ghar Jaana Hai. She made her name playing Anupama and Tia in Doli Saja Ke.

But now the 30-year-old, who's married, incidentally, is ready for the big screen.

In a recent interview with an Indian daily, Bisht reportedly said Prakash had tapped her for the role thanks to her ability to dance and emote equally well.

As for being a married item dancer, Bisht sees no problem with it, because she's performed in a 'classy' dance, and done nothing vulgar.

Unfortunately, the hot dance number might be a one-time-only deal. Bisht is reportedly aiming to become a Bollywood actress.

She's said she chose to make her film debut as a dancer in a big film because it's better than starring in a film nobody watches. She maintains that her heart is in acting, and she intends to pursue it in the future.
