'I Was Not Comfortable Doing Bold Scenes With Om Puri': Mallika Sherawat
The actress on her role in Dirty Politics and why it could be her most challenging assignment
Actress Mallika Sherawat has done bold scenes for various films in the past, but she says she was not at ease performing bold sequences with veteran actor Om Puri in Dirty Politics. "I was not at all comfortable, but he made me comfortable," the actress said during the trailer launch of the film.
Directed by KC Bokadia, Diry Politics is said to be based on the Bhanwari Devi sex scandal. Om Puri plays a politician in the film. Talking about her character in the film, Mallika said she essays an ambitious woman who uses her sex appeal to move up in life. "I play a character called Anokhi Devi in the film and she is very greedy kind of woman and very ambitious. She can do anything to get her ambitions fulfilled. She is from a poor family. So, when she is noticed by this politician, she does not leave the opportunity as she wants to move up in life and she uses her sex appeal to dominate the politician to go up in her life and realize her ambition and her power."
Dirty Politics also features Naseeruddin Shah, Anupam Kher, Jackie Shroff, Ashutosh Rana and Rajpal Yadav.
