Actress Mallika Sherawat feels that she seldom receives recognition for her acting skills and that a significant portion of the film business just discusses her figure and glitz. In a recent conversation, the actress discussed her career and contrasted her 2004 movie Murder with Deepika Padukone’s most latest movie, Gehraaiyan.
The actress discussed the changes the business has undergone with Prabhat Khabar in their interview. “In the past, the female protagonists were either too nice, sati-savitri-type characters who were too naïve to realise anything, or that they were the faceless vampires. Only these different roles were created specifically for heroines. Women are now portrayed as people by the shift we have seen. She has both joy and sorrow. You adore them regardless of the fact that she can make errors and fall, she added.
Speaking candidly about contemporary actresses, Mallika continued, The heroines are also more self-assured about their bodies. I committed murder, and it caused such a commotion. Regarding kissing and the bikini, individuals had a wide range of opinions. I attempted to do what Deepika Padukone performed in Gehraiyaan fifteen years ago, but individuals were too closed-minded at the time. I should let you know that some people in the business and the media were abusing me mentally. These individuals simply discussed my appearance and splendour, not my performance. None of the films I worked on, including Dashavataram, Pyaar Ke Side Effects, and Welcome, mentioned my acting.
While Shakun Batra’s Gehraaiyan was a romantic drama movie that highlighted the complicated aspect of contemporary relationships, Anurag Basu’s Murder was an erotic romantic mystery centered on the 2002 American movie Unfaithful, which in turn was influenced by the French film The Unfaithful Wife.
The cast of Mallika Sherawat’s next film RK/RKay, which is helmed by Rajat Kapoor and stars a variety of actors including Kubra Sait, Rahul Bose, Ranvir Shorey, and Manu Rishi Chadha, to mention a few, is complete. The movie has been shown at several film festivals, including the Shanghai International Film Fest and Austin Film Fest.
