A sultry and seductive Priyanka Chopra in a new dance number of the upcoming film 'Ram Leela' has gone viral.

Dressed in minimal sheer cotton piece of cloth, Priyanka flaunts her assets - finally breaking item number jinx with "Ram Chahe Leela".

The actress' sexy avatar in the love ballad has met with a tremendous response on YouTube crossing 2.5 million hits within one week.

It's not just the tiny white blouse and dhoti that's grabbing eyeballs; she even inked a tattoo on her midriff.

Priyanka gyrates to some complicated dance moves choreographed by Vishnu Deva; composing a mixture of western and classical steps.

The beats are not folk themed as apparent by the song's dominant feel and is raved for its catchy beat.

Priyanka's number is a far cry from the lead actress Deepika Padukone's folk song "Nagada Sang Dhol".

Deepika's dance, which has the actress dressed as a Gujarati belle in red ghagra-choli, instantly reminds one of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's "Dholi taro dhol baaje" in Bhansali's 1999-superhit, 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam'.

Deepika flaunts her graceful moves making use of those expressive almond shaped eyes and dimpled smile.

Leela dances effortlessly to the beats of this new peppy garba number with asymmetrical tattoos on her neck, frizzy hair and a nose ring completing her Indian look.

Teary eyed Deepika has been given some beautifully choreographed traditional dance steps.

But the tremendous response to Priyanka's song has surely shifted the momentum away from Deepika's folk number.

Deepika looks stunning, spirited, rebellious yet playful in all the songs like "Nagada Sang Dhol", "Lahu Munh Laga Gaya", "Ishqyaun Dhishqyaun".

But the last of the lot by Priyanka has almost eclipsed Deepika's earnest efforts.

Priyanka's enticing crowd puller oozes oomph as she seduces her way into the audience's heart.

But surely one dance number by Priyanka is not going to dampen the lead heroine's spirit.

After three consecutive hits Deepika, has proved that she’s indeed racing ahead of her contemporaries. Her expression, acting, dance or plain beauty has become the perfect concoction for her success recipe.

Deepika took to twitter to praise Priyanka's "Ram Chahe Leela" act showing not insecurity and tension between them.

She tweeted, “@priyankachopra you look beautiful... thank you for doing #RamChaheLeela (sic).” To which Priyanka repllied, “@deepikapadukone I'm glad I could babe.. Can't wait to see the film (sic).”

Whether it's Priyanka or Deepika, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali knows how to portray the beautiful ladies on-screen.

‘Ram-Leela’ is a Hindi intense love story film based on the story of Romeo and Juliet. The film is produced and directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Known for lavish sets and colourful costumes, Bhansali's signature style seems apparent in 'RamLeela’.

The movie spells grandeur and is the amalgamation of his previous super hits 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam', 'Devdas' and also has glimpses of the sensitivity of 'Khamoshi'.
