Yes, she may have been in the news recently for making big bucks from small appearances, but now reports are that Bollywood sex-kitten Mallika Sherawat has signed a film for free.
The lucky producer is Ronnie Screwvala whose next unnamed film has been signed by Mallika for free.
It is to be mentioned here that all actors and actresses pocket an amount when they sign a film, which is called signing amount.
Mallika has been in the news recently because of her ten-minute Rs. 1.5 crore act in Himesh Reshammiya’s debut movie as an actor Aap Ka Suroor and this was not the first time she did an expensive stint.
Earlier too, Mallika charged a huge amount for just an item song in Guru and how can one forget the new year bash where she has been paid in lakhs for a ten-minute performance by a Mumbai based five star hotel.
So Screwvala should be thanking to his stars that Mallika has signed his film for free.
Asha Bhosle has provided the vocals for the song Mehbooba which is a tribute to Panchamda. Mallika adds spice to the screen with her moves while dancing to mystic and eternally alluring Mehbooba.
The song has Mallika dressed in a beautiful emerald green gypsy costume and she looks stunningly sexy. The costume is designed by Ashley Rebello. According to sources, this outfit was made as a tribute to Helen, who danced to the original ‘Mehbooba’ number in the cult classic Sholay.
Mallika is planning to auction the same outfit on the film’s release date, June 29. The venue for the event is yet to be decided, but if reports are to be believed the event will be held at the film’s premiere in Mumbai.
