The above mentioned actresses did not exclusively make it to the item numbers, they were well into the business of acting .Moreover some of them like Aishwarya and Sushmita did the needful for those given films for the first time.

Mere display of physique along with a few gyrating and whooping movements do not necessarily contribute to the success of an item number. One has to pitch in with ones appropriate expression.
