Mallika Sherawat, an actress, feels that a significant portion of the film industry is solely interested in discussing her appearance, particularly her figure and her glamour and that her acting abilities are rarely praised.
In a recent interview, the actress not only discussed her career but also compared her film Murder in 2004 to Deepika Padukone’s most recent film, Gehraaiyan, which was released not too long ago.
Gehraiyaan and Murder Are Comparable, Says Mallika Sherawat!
In an interview with Prabhat Khabar, the actress discussed the shifts that have occurred in the business as a result of the beginning of a new age.
“In the past, the heroines were either sati-Savitri types who were too naive to know anything or characterless vamps. They were either too good or too naïve to know anything.
These two types of roles were the only ones that were ever written for heroines. The shift that we are witnessing now reveals women to be human.
She is capable of both joy and sorrow. “She can falter, she can make mistakes, and you can still love them despite all of that,” she explained.
Mallika further elaborated on the topic of modern-day actresses by stating that “the heroines are more confident with their bodies as well.” When I committed Murder, there was a lot of commotion caused.
People expressed a wide variety of opinions regarding the kiss as well as the bikini. I attempted to do what Deepika Padukone did in the film Gehraaiyaan 15 years ago, but back then, people were much more closed-minded than they are today.
I feel obligated to let you know that a portion of the industry as well as the media was psychologically abusing me.
These individuals just commented on my physical appearance and my glamour, making no mention of my acting. I had roles in the films Dashavataram, Pyaar Ke Side Effects, and Welcome, but nobody ever remarked about my performance.”
While Anurag Basu’s Murder was an erotic romantic thriller based on the 2002 American film Unfaithful, which was itself inspired by the French film The Unfaithful Wife, Shakun Batra’s Gehraaiyan was a romantic drama film that showcased the murky side of modern-age relationships. Both films were inspired by the same film, The Unfaithful Wife.
Mallika Sherawat is getting ready for her forthcoming film RK/RKay, which is directed by Rajat Kapoor and contains an ensemble cast that also includes Kubra Sait, Rahul Bose, and Ranvir Shorey, and Manu Rishi Chadha, to mention a few of the actors.
The film is scheduled to be released soon. The movie has been shown in a number of film festivals recently, including the Shanghai International Film Festival and the Austin Film Festival, among others.
