Mallika Sherawat made her debut with a 2003 movie Khwahish but rose to recognition and fame after her stint in the crime thriller Murder alongside Emraan Hashmi

The movie was a remake of Hollywood’s Unfaithful where Mallika played Simran, a married woman who has an extra marital affair with Hashmi’s character Sunny.

Apart from the songs and gripping storyline, the film grabbed attention for its bold scenes which was not as common in cinema at the time.

Mallika Sherawat was perceived as this sizzling, sexy actress on the block by some, while some “morally assassinated” her for doing such scenes.

Speaking to an entertainment portal, she opened up about how she was typecast after the movie and seen as a fallen woman by the audience. 

She said, “When I acted in Murder (2004), I was almost morally assassinated for those scenes I shot; I was seen as a fallen woman. Today, those things I did back then are common in our films. People’s perceptions have changed. Our cinema has changed.”

It was, in fact, quite an unconventional role to play for Sherawat back in 2004. She went on to act in films like Pyaar Ke Side Effects, Welcome, and Double Dhamaal in the subsequent years of her career.

She further added, “But even now, when I think of it, nothing beats the cinema of the 50s and 60s. We had wonderful roles for women, but we lack that beauty in our films in a big way. I have waited for years to get a role that has substance.”

Murder completed 17 years which tagged Mallika Sherawat as a *** symbol. She has been a part of several films in her Bollywood trajectory, most of which shows her in a glamorous role.

On playing different types of roles, she has said, “I want to play meaningful roles. I have missed doing that. People were approaching me for very glamorous roles, with a lot of money, but no soul in the character or meaning to it. It’s important to reinvent yourself after a period of time. If I do the same things that I have done before, you will only get vintage Mallika.”

She will next be seen in Vishal Mishra’s horror film, Rosie: The Saffron Chapter alongside Arbaaz Khan. Whether she will break out of her glamorous tag in this movie, we are yet to find out.
