Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat promises her new movie "Bach Ke Rehna Re Baba" will be wildest, funniest and sexiest film of
The movie, to be released across India Friday, will "rock Delhi and take the audience for a joyride", Mallika told reporters.
"'Bach Ke Rehna Re Baba' has all the elements to attract movie-goers. Its unchallenging comedy laced with sexy scenes will provide
pure entertainment to the audience," she said.
"It's a sex comedy and will charm the old and young alike. You just need to go and enjoy the fun."
Speaking about her experiences while acting with Rekha, who plays a leading role in the film, Mallika said she had been nervous
when she signed the movie.
"I was absolutely nervous and felt overshadowed by Rekha's personality. But she turned out to be a cool lady and made me feel
comfortable," said Mallika, who gave tips on kissing to Rekha for the film.
"One of the interesting incidents during the shoot was a kissing scene between Paresh Rawal and Rekha. They were feeling quite
shy. So I said that I would teach them, because I am the kissing queen of our country! While I gave her smooching tips, she gave me
beauty tips," she said with a smile.
Post-Cannes Mallika is all full of confidence.
"Time magazine has called me one of the hottest babes and I got lot of attention from the European and American media. Now, my
critics and people know that I have not come so far in life by fluke. I have substance and I am going to play a long innings in the film
industry," she gushes.
On her international splash Mallika says, "I have bagged two international projects. The producers will make the announcements. But
I will not leave India because Indian films are my bread and butter. They have made me what I am. At present, I have not signed any
new films because the script must excite me. Skin-show cannot help all the time. It's the script that sells a film. That's why I'm
looking at scripts that are challenging. "
Directed by Govind Menon of "Khawhish" fame, the movie also has Paresh Rawal and Satish Shah.
Newcomer Karan Khanna, the nephew of Vinod Khanna, plays the role of Mallika's lover.
