Mallika Sherawat says 'What Deepika Padukone did now, I did 15 years ago; the actor compared her film Murder to Deepika’s Gehraiyaan

The actor is returning to the silver screen with her upcoming film ‘Rk/Rkay’. In the course of the film's promotions, Mallika shared how a section of the industry only highlighted her looks and glamour but never her acting skills. She also drew a comparison between her 2004 film ‘Murder’ and Deepika Padukone’s ‘Gehraiyaan’. The actor said she did similar work fifteen years ago. Her film was highlighted for the steamy scenes and Deepika’s was celebrated for several aspects.


The actor even shared, "Such hue and cry were created when I did Murder. People said all kinds of things about the kiss and the bikini. What Deepika Padukone did in Gehraiyaan, I did that 15 years ago, but people were too narrow-minded back then. I should tell you that a section of the industry and media was mentally torturing me. These people only talked about my body and glamour, not my acting. I worked in Dasavatharam, Pyaar Ke Side Effects and Welcome, but none talked about my acting.”

She further shared about the changes in the industry, “Earlier, the heroines were either too good, sati-savitri types who were too innocent to know anything, or they were the characterless vamps. These were the only two types of roles written for heroines. The change that we see now, shows women as humans. She can be happy or sad. She can make mistakes, she can falter, and you love them despite all of that. The heroines are more confident about their bodies as well.”

On the work front, Mallika Sherawat is busy promoting ‘Rk/Rkay’ which will release on July 22. The film is written and directed by Rajat Kapoor and stars Kubbra Sait, Ranvir Shorey, Manu Rishi Chadha, Chandrachoor Rai, Abhijeet Deshpande, Abhishek Sharrma, Grace Girdhar, and Vaishali Malhara.
