Mallika Sherawat has been named one of the world’s sexiest women. An international men’s website has ranked her with Angelina Jolie, Shakira and Christina Aguilera. She’s placed even higher than Anna Kournikova. (And predictably on the list is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan). The irony in all this is that Indian cinema is yet to celebrate this sizzling sex

symbol the way the West has done. Early in her career she appeared in Murder and Khwaish- after that we lost her to Hollywood who quickly grabbed her. We know her work most memorably from Jackie Chan’s The Myth.

Her recent Bollywood stint in Welcome also failed to get her more roles. The industry’s take on her is that her audaciousness is limited to how much skin she shows –not her acting talent. To this her defense was: “I happen to be a movie star and not just an actress. That’s like being a wicketkeeper whose batting sometimes overshadows his work behind the stumps. But, yes, as far as my sex symbol image goes, there is a sense of deja vu. I do get the feeling I’ve been there and done that.”

It’s exciting that black haired Indian women have globally captured the imagination of men, whose previous fantasies only included blondes and brunettes. The list places her 67th in the position. Thrilled, Sherawat responded: “It feels great not just for myself, but also because Indian women are making their mark in the West just like curry, samosas and chai did earlier! Indian women are like Indian food - very spicy, very sweet and addictive! It’s about time the West got a good taste of us!”
