New Delhi: Bollywood stunner Aditi Rao Hydari feels that dance number should not be referred to as an item number.
The talented lass who will be next seen in 'The Legend of Michael Mishra' along with Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani said in a IANS report, "I don't call it an item number. I don't think in 2016 anybody should call it an item number. I think it's sad if anybody is calling a dance number an item number. You are referring to a girl as an item. Please don't call it an item number."
She added: "When Madhuri Dixit dances, you call her a dancer. You don't call her an item. It all depends on how you treat yourself."
"The Legend Of Michael Mishra", which also features Arshad Warsi, was ready two years back, but it will finally release on August 5.
Aditi said: "I did this film soon after 'Boss'. At that time, it was very quirky and a different world that Manish Jha (the film's director) had created. I was never offered something like this before, so I did it."
"It's releasing now... after two years. But I still feel it will be valid because I feel it's a quirky film. The kind of film the audience accepts these days... I am hoping they will like this," she added.
