Mallika Sherawat, the Hissss actress, returned to India hiding behind a burqa in order to avoid the crowds having previously tweeted to her fans, “I will be in Indore. Come say hi my tweeps!” A local press photographer snapped her in the traditional outfit. “I repeatedly requested her to remove the burqa for a while and pose for a photograph, but she did not,” he said, “So I took her snap in the burqa itself .”
But Mallika will not be staying in India for long and has established herself very much as part of the social scene in Hollywood. She was recently seen shopping with Shirley MacLaine in Chanel on Rodeo Drive; at a UNICEF charity function, in a stunning yellow gown, with Michael York and Billy Zane and will be attending the premiere of Jane Campion’s new movie, Bright Star.
She also appears on the front cover of Canadian magazine Bollywood Filmfare Canada in a figure-hugging, lacy coral blue dress. With news that she has also bagged a lead role in an American movie, it could be some time before the actress is next seen in a Bollywood production.
