Actress Mallika Sherawat who made her debut with ‘Khwahish’ in 2003 went on to play many bold roles in various films such as murder alongside Emraan Hashmi. Sherawat carved a niche for herself in the industry over the years through her work. However, her journey wasn’t easy at all. In a recent interview she revealed a ‘weird’ concept for a song sequence that a producer once came to her with.
Sharing the anecdote, she said that once a producer came to her with the idea for a song sequence where he wanted to ‘heat chapatis’ on my waist for a ‘hot song’.
“In his warped thinking, he was like, ‘Bada hot song hai. Audience ko kaise pata chalega ki aap hot hai? Aap itni hot hai ki aapki kamar pe main chapati sekh sakta hoon. Some weird notion like that. Have you ever heard of anything like that?” she questioned.
“I put my foot down. I said, ‘No, we are not doing any such thing.’ But I thought it was very funny and original. It’s an original idea,” she added.
The actress further added that she does not understand what is considered hot in India, in fact, she finds it weird. “I think they have a really weird perception of hotness in India for women. I don’t understand it. Of course, it’s better now but when I started my career, it was weird,” she said.
On the work front, Mallika was recently seen in the MX Player series, Nakaab which also starred Esha Gupta and Gautam Rode in pivotal roles.
