Mallika Sherawat Opens Up On Losing ‘Welcome Back,’ Claims Director Cast His GF
Mallika Sherawat opens up on losing 'Welcome Back' says that the director wanted to cast his girlfriend in the film.
Mallika Sherawat’s performance in the 2007 film, ‘Welcome’ is quite appreciated. However, she was not part of the film ‘Welcome Back’, which is a sequel to her film. In a recent interview, the actress claimed that she lost the film because the director wanted to cast his girlfriend.
Talking to Pinkvilla, the ‘Murder’ actress said: “Welcome ka sequel banega toh director apni girlfriend ko hi dalega na usmein. Welcome 2 bana toh usmein apni girlfriend ko daal diya batao, ab main kya karun? (If a sequel of Welcome is made, then the director will only cast his girlfriend. When Welcome 2 was made, he cast his girlfriend in the film. What do I do now?).”
Further, she added: “When they make a sequel they cast their girlfriend, the hero casts his girlfriend, what do I do then? I don’t have any boyfriend in Bollywood, I have never been with any actor, director, or producer. With me like this is my work, if you think I am worthy of your project I would love to be a part of it. But if a director, or a producer or an actor – if they want to cast their girlfriends then it’s their choice.”
On the work front, the actress is currently in MX Player’s web series, ‘Nakaab,’ which also stars Esha Gupta and Gautam Rode in the lead roles.
