Mallika Sherawat

1. – Nayantara, Sivakasi, India, 2004. Both Mallika and Simran were talked about for the routine finally given to Nayantara.

2. – Aruna Shields, Private Moments, 2005.      She refused to be Saira in the UK romance. A Halle Berry lookalike, Mallika is estranged from her ultra-religious family, who disapprove of her career… particularly when it led to a Playboy nude spread offer. She refused. Not because of her folks but fear of being blacklisted by Bollywood.

3. – Nayanthara, Sivaji, India, 2007. For Bollywood, the casting saga of the Sivaji girls matched a Bond Girl hunt. Seven stars jostled for the titular gangster’s moll (from Aishwarya Rai to Ayesha Taki) and six more for the, Balleilakka dance number: from Bipasha Basu to Shilpa Shetty.

4. – Sameera Reddy, Race, India, 2008.      Non-stop headaches for the director brothers known collectively as Abbas-Mastan. They set their hearts on Mallika, John Abraham, Priyanka Chopra, Ajay Devgan – and had to settle for Sameera, Bipasha Basu, Anil Kapoor, Akshaye Khanna.
