Malaika Sherawat “Some tried to shoot me saying she is spoiling Indian culture”

Malaika Sherawat in a recent interview with Mashable India, while promoting her new movie Rk/Rkay, revealed about facing judgment from the audience.


In the 2003 film Khwaish, Mallika Sherawat made her acting debut in Bollywood. She then became well-known thanks to her role in the romantic thriller Murder, co-starring Mahesh Bhatt, in 2004. Along with these films, the actress has appeared in Hisss, Pyaar Ke Side Effects, Welcome, Ugly Aur Pagli, and The Myth. In a recent interview, Mallika discussed the criticism she received from others and the reasons she decided to take a pause and go to Los Angeles.

Mallika said:  “I felt so many judgments on me in India, I just wanted a break from it. They were burning my effigies. Some tried to shoot me saying she is spoiling Indian culture. I was feeling so attacked. I was an easy target because I had no support in Bollywood. Nobody would mess like that with a superstar’s daughter or son. Mahesh Bhatt once told me, ‘You keep on falling and crying, so some people in Bollywood enjoy that’ and this is what I experienced.”

She said that she wanted to experience a different culture because she believed she had enough money and was prominent in Bollywood. “I packed my bags and off I went to LA and Jackie Chan said, ‘don’t worry, you just land there in LA and you’ll get the red carpet treatment’, and I did. He organized everything for me, and I met some fantastic people there,” Mallika Sherawat said.


In addition, Mallika stated that this has been her experience in the industry and that she would like not to comment on the experiences of others if they had different experiences. “If you are not associated with any camp in Bollywood, if you do not have any famous boyfriend in Bollywood, or if you do not have a godfather, then your chances are greatly reduced. I don’t want to focus on negativity and fight it,” she added. In the meantime, Mallika will play the lead role in the upcoming film RK/RKay, which also stars Rajat Kapoor, Kubbra Sait, and Ranvir Shorey.
