Controversy queen Mallika Sherawat, who was in US shooting for a Hollywood show, is back in the city and gearing up for her film 'Dirty Politics' with Anupam Kher, Om Puri, Jackie Shroff, Govind Namdeo and Ashutosh Rana.
'Dirty Politics' is based on Bhanvari Devi's sex scandal and is slated to release sometime early next year. Ask Mallika whether she was nervous doing bold scenes with a senior actor like Om Puri and she says, "I was nervous acting with Om Puri. He is one of the brilliant actors in India. But Om Puri went out of his way to make me feel comfortable.â€
She added further, â€œI wasn't comfortable doing love making scenes with Om Puri. So we had to break the ice because if the scenes would have been faked, it would have looked vulgar.â€
Probe Mallika about her role and she reveals, â€œI play a greedy ambitious lady who can go to any extent to get what she wants. In fact, she tries to get her work done with her sex appeal."
Meanwhile, Mallika has always managed to stay in the limelight for her eye grabbing statements, the last one being her video where she criticized the condition of women in India. Quiz her if it was a publicity stunt and she is quick to respond, â€œI have enough publicity in my life. Desh ka bacha bacha jaanata hai mujhe..China ke log bhi jaante hai.â€
