The Agneepath video has achieved over 5 million views on the official YouTube Dharma Channel, with comparisons drawn between Kaif and earlier Hindi film dancers Madhuri Dixit and Helen.
However, Kaif previously said: "I don't want to be compared with dancing icons like Madhuri and Helen. Their songs are still being played on reality shows and for stage performances. They've done a fabulous job.
"I think they looked stunning in those songs. But I'd take it as a compliment if I came anywhere close to what Helen and Madhuri did."
Producer Karan Johar announced his intention to feature Kaif in an item song last November.
'Chikni Chameli' was composed by Ajay-Atul and choreographed by Ganesh Acharya.
Agneepath is released on January 26.
