Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat says she missed many projects as some male actors were unable to adjust themselves with her opinionated nature and temperament. Followinf to which they replaced her with their girlfriends.
Mallika got a breakthrough from romantic film Murder in which she played a lead role opposite Emraan Hashmi.
“I lost film projects because they thought I was opinionated. I would hear from heroes ‘don’t cast her she speaks a lot and has a lot of opinions.’ They would prefer their girlfriends instead of me in projects. I can list at least 20-30 movies that I’ve lost. But it didn’t make me bitter. It was my gradual evolution. Now when I look back, they look like fools, all of them,” Mallika told PTI.
The 42-year-old actor said when she started to speak about social issues, including the mindset of people towards women, no one took her seriously. “When I spoke about women’s issues, there were people in Bollywood and the media who thought I wasn’t a patriot and weren’t ready to listen. I also know actresses who assaulted me but I love my country and hence this regressive mindset we have against women needs to change,” NDTV reported.
