Mallika Sherawat returns to MumbaiDecember 18th, 2008 - 4:53 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
The actress Mallika Sherwat had just returned to Mumbai where a few days ago she was in Malaysia , invited as a guest speaker at the Global Brand Forum 2008 which was held in Kuala Lumpur last week. The actress was a part of an expert panel where she shared her thoughts & comments with personalities like renowned Hollywood filmmaker Oliver Stone & Dato’ Farah Khan.
Mallika said, “”It was a huge surprise for me to be invited to the global forum along with Oliver Stone - What do we have have in common, I asked myself. I guess for better or for worse we both have our own brands - and as Oliver Stone says - people either love or hate his films, but certainly have a strong opinion about him, his politics and his films. I guess its the same for me - there are young people around the country who have embraced me, and on the other hand there are lots of people in the country and in the film industry and in advertising who think I’m too controversial, radical etc., for their liking.”
She also included by saying, “Besides that he has a genius who has achieved so much and I’ve just begun my tough climb. But to share the same stage with someone who’s made JFK, Platoon, Natural Born Killers and U Turn - All I can say is Wow!”
Recently, Mallika had won the 2008 Renaissance Artist Award at the 16th Annual Diversity Awards held at the Universal City in California and is currently working on ‘Hissss’, a Hollywood-Bollywood film directed by famous Hollywood director Jennifer Lynch.
