Actress Mallika Sherawat recently made an appearance on the latest episode of the hit comedy series The Kapil Sharma Show, where she was joined by fellow actors and co-stars Tusshar Kapoor, Kiku Sharda, Krushna Abhishek and filmmaker Ekta Kapoor to promote their upcoming comedy web show Booo Sabki Phategi. During the show, Kapil interviewed the cast on a variety of topics but what really caught people’s attention was his line of questioning for Mallika and her surprising revelation
Having hit it big in the mid-2000s, Mallika is a certified icon in Bollywood for her bold image and glamour. In fact, she was so popular for her hotness that there were reportedly rumours of people wrapping chapatis in newspapers and posters that had her picture on them in order to keep them heated! When Kapil asked Mallika about whether these rumours were true, the Welcome actress took the question a step further and revealed that a producer had once asked her to film a scene where eggs would be fried on her belly to drive home how ‘hot’ she was. Mallika refused to shoot the sequence but the revelation and the mystery of who the producer was has caught the attention of many.
Mallika’s career began with a supporting role in her debut film Jeena Sirf Merre Liye, a romance flick starring Kareena Kapoor Khan and Tusshar Kapoor, but it was her lead role in the Emraan Hashmi-starrer Murder that shot her to Bollywood stardom. The thriller was a certified box office hit and turned into a series as it spawned two more sequels with different casts, Murder 2 and Murder 3. Mallika is also known for her performance in the cult comedy film Welcome, where she displayed her comic chops.
Now in her latest upcoming web series Booo Sabki Phategi, the actress will be taking up comedy again. The series follows a group of friends who decide to spend four days in a hotel that ends up being haunted by a ghost named Haseena, played by Mallika. The show premiered on the 27th of June and is available on the digital platform ALTBalaji.
