Mallika Sherawat made her unique place in the showbiz ever since her debut with ‘Khwahish’ in 2003. Recently the actress revealed that a producer once came to her with a ‘weird’ concept for a song sequence. She said that he suggested that they show chapatis being heated on her waist.
Mallika was on The Love Laugh Live Show, where she said that she refused to shoot for such a song but added that she found it ‘funny and original’.
Mallika said. “In his warped thinking, he was like, ‘Bada hot song hai. Audience ko kaise pata chalega ki aap hot hai? Aap itni hot hai ki aapki kamar pe main chapati sekh sakta hoon (It’s a very hot song. How will the audience know you are hot? You are so hot that one can heat chapatis on your waist).’ Some weird notion like that. Have you ever heard of anything like that?” she asked.
“I put my foot down. I said, ‘No, we are not doing any such thing.’ But I thought it was very funny and original. It’s an original idea,” she added
The actress also added that she does not understand what is considered hot in India; in fact, she finds it uncanny. “I think they have a really weird perception of hotness in India for women. I don’t understand it. Of course, it’s better now but when I started my career, it was weird,” she said.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Mallika was recently seen in the MX Player series, Nakaab, also starring Esha Gupta and Gautam Rode.
