Move over Sheila, here come the item boys!

All the girls are doing it, so why can't the boys? If 2010 was the year of the item babe — with Munni and Sheila being the talk of B-town — then this year, the item boys are taking over in their leather pants, fake moustaches and wigs.

Aamir Khan: An item number was the only thing missing from perfectionist Aamir Khan's CV. In his latest home production, Aamir didn't just shake a leg, '70s style, in the song I Hate You, Like I Love You — he also spoofed the actors of the '70s disco era. From the swagger of Rishi Kapoor, Big B's mane, Govinda's bawdy dance moves, to Anil Kapoor's hairy chest, he borrowed elements from popular yesteryear stars.
Ranbir Kapoor: Tai Tai Phiss — the item song in an upcoming kiddie flick — features RK Jr in his first item number. He has sported his father Rishi Kapoor's look from his film Amar Akbar Anthony. Shaking a leg maawali style, Bollywood's newest twinkle toes (after Hrithik Roshan) is game for anything.

Amitabh Bachchan: For a long time, the younger generation has ripped off his songs and dance moves. Now the real 68-year-old angry man is doing the cool dude act in his film, riding the original thumper, and dancing with firangs in barely-there clothes in the song. And he proves that he is the grand daddy of them all when he shakes a leg in a medley of all his old songs. The medley Go Meera combines the evergreen chartbusters — Rang Barse, Khaike Paan Banaraswala, Pag Ghungroo and the disco song Sara Zamana.

Salman Khan: Aamir Khan has hailed him as Bollywood's original item boy. The bad boy of Bollywood, who has given three back-to-back releases, is the hottest item boy in town. While the belt antic in Dabangg with the trademark glasses won him a lot of applause, the Dhinka Chika number in his latest film is apparently the most downloaded song on Internet.

Shah Rukh Khan: Though King Khan has many item numbers to his credit, he hasn't been seen on screen for a long time. SRK, who amazed his fans with his six-pack in the song Dard-E-Disco, will flaunt his body again in his forthcoming film Ra.One, borrowing steps from Bharatanatyam. The superstar also turned an item boy for his home production Always Kabhi Kabhi.
