Mallika Sherawat cannot be restricted to being solely labelled as a Bollywood actress along given the body of work, coupled with her numerous appearances at international events both cinematic and of other kinds. Along with names like Aishwarya Rai and Piyanka Chopra, it would be safe to say to say that Mallika Sherawat, too, is a globe-trotting international star, especially since her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival with Jackie Chan no less back in 2005 when their movie, The Myth had premiered. In short, Mallika Sherawat is as apt a candidate as can be to recommend some good, solid foreign web series for our desi audience to binge on, and recommend she did in an exclusive chat with BollywoodLife, naming a title that not many here have seen, but definitely should.
“The one web series that I really enjoyed and binge-watched was The Handmaid’s Tale, which I really loved. So, I would really, highly recommend that,” said Mallika Sherawat.
She also opened up on how actresses like her are always targetted for doing bold scenes by trolls, but their male costars walk away scot-free. “That’s what the patriarchal system is. It’s always the women who are always targetted, not the men. Not only in India, but that’s all over the world. Men walk away with everything, they an get away with everything, it’s like they (those who target) blame the woman for everything. I don’t know why, but more so in India, I feel. I also think, the society wasn’t evolved, people would think differently. Plus, the media didn’t support such scenes (bold scenes) earlier, a certain section of the media. But now, the media is very, very supportive, especially toward women, and even the society has evolved. Actresses now are doing frontal nudity and it’s accepted, it’s considered very artistic,” she added.
