This is why we love her!
Instead of complaining that Hollywood is prejudiced towards Asians (like a recent Slumdog Millionaire actor), Mallika Sherawat is appreciated that we’re finally getting some recognition and doors are beginning to open.
Don’t you think she’ll land more roles now with her great attitude?
Mallika Sherawat has revealed that the international success of Slumdog Millionaire has helped her crack the US.
The actress was not part of Slumdog Millionaire, but said that she appreciates its global influence.
“That film really opened doors in Hollywood for everyone. I am doing some good Hollywood films and there are many, many offers too,” she told The Times of India.
“The women are now just not seen as Oriental beauties, they are seen as actors and talents with huge potential. Hollywood has become totally color blind.”
The controversial star, who found early success in Bollywood with prolonged kissing scenes and revealing outfits, feels that the industry has changed in the time she has been away.
“There were so many moral codes for the leading lady in Bollywood. When I kissed on screen or wore swimsuits, big deal was made out of it. But now everyone is doing it.”
Sherawat is currently on a promotional tour for new release Hisss.
