Mallika Sherawat: Mallika's onscreen debut
was in Lak Tunoo, a music video by Surjit Bindrakhia. She attracted wide
notice with her appearance in the 2003 movie Khwahish, which was, by Indian
standards, quite racy; Ms. Sherawat appeared in a number of revealing costumes.
Later that year, she starred in Murder, a film inspired by Hollywood's
"Unfaithful" that again challenged Indian film standards. She received a 'Best
Actress' nomination at the Zee Cine Awards for her performance in "Murder" as it
went on to become the biggest hit of the year.
Since then, Sherawat has been known as the Controversy Queen of Bollywood as she continues to make headlines through her outfits and blunt statements.
She also made news when she won a small role in a Jackie Chan movie, The Myth, where she again appeared in "sexy" costumes. She made a widely publicized appearance at the Cannes Film Festival to promote The Myth.
Since her debut, Mallika was often accused of simply being a sexy woman without talent. Her performance in 2006 Pyaar Ke Side Effects co-starring Rahul Bose won her praise from around the industry and the film also garnered decent collections. The movie stamped Mallika as an actress who started off as an item girl and joined the main stream later on.
She is now beginning to work in the Kollywood (Tamil) film industry as well. The two films being Sivaji: The Boss, in a guest role, starring Rajinikanth and Dasavatharam starring Kamal Haasan.
Her latest project is a 11-minute role in Himesh Reshammiya's Aap Ka Suroor - The Real Love Story, which has been called a "vampish role". Mallika herself has protested, saying that it is a negative role but not a vamp role. With this film, she has become the most expensive "Item Girl", as she charged Rs. 1.5 crore for her role in the movie. However, she has insisted on a "no kissing" clause in her contract for the film.
Mallika Sherawat has been voted as one of Asia's 100 most beautiful people by the Hong Kong based fashion and beauty magazine,
