After trying her luck in Hollywood, Mallika Sherawat talks about her love and affection towards Bollywood

Mallika Sherawat moved to the US, thanks to her international projects, but says her heart resides in Bollywood and that people in the West are curious about the Hindi film industry. “I am more of a global actor now but Bollywood is my life. It is my bread and butter,” said Mallika here at a press conference to announce her performance at Hotel Tulip Star’s New Year’s Eve show. Mallika has made US her second home and has been there for the past two years. The actor, who was last seen in Hollywood flick Politics Of Love, asserts that the West is curious to know more about Bollywood.

About her new films, she said, “I have signed Lucky Unlucky. I am playing a Jat sprinter in it and I have signed another movie with Vivek Oberoi, Kismat Love Paisa Delhi. It will be directed by Sanjay Khanduri. Then, there is an international venture that I’m doing.”

“I’m trying to maintain a balance between both America and India. Right now there is so much curiosity in America about Bollywood and Indian actors,” said Mallika, who is in here to shoot for Khanduri’s film.
