An army of 100 bodyguards were on hand to defend Mallika Sherawat, Bollywood’s red hot superbabe, on the set of Maan Gaye Mughal-E-Azam. The whole production came to a standstill when thousands of fans flocked onto the set to catch a glimpse of their idol.
Producer Ratan Jain said, “Yes, the situation had become slightly desperate and before it could get out of hand, I made arrangements for 100 security men. Mallika is the lead actress of my film. She is my responsibility and it was my duty to see that there she was safe as her producer.”
This is Mallika’s second movie with Rahul Bose after Pyaar Ke Side Effects. The two stars are said to get on very well together.
Mallika, who received a Best Actress nomination for her role in Murder is perhaps best known internationally for her eye-catching performance in the Chinese movie, The Myth alongside Jackie Chan. She also recently played the role of Jasmine in the Kollywood film Dasavatharam, where Jackie was a guest. How did she feel about working with the Great Chan? “To be up there with the best isn’t something that falls into everyone’s lap,” she says, “So, I felt both proud as well as grateful that the moment had come my way!”
