No more bold skin show: Mallika Sherawat
After getting tagged as the raunchy and bold actress of Bollywood, it looks like Mallika now wishes to reform her image in the industry. Just recently, the actress was a participant in a charity event where her designer Pria Kataria Puri was shocked with Mallika. Reportedly, the lady requested her designer to create a demure, brown suit for her that could cover her up completely.
Pria exclaims, “On August 7, I had participated in a charity event organised by Jagriti wherein I had put together a fashion show. We had quite a few celebrities in attendance and Lisa Ray wore an outfit of mine for this charity event.” “Mallika asked me to email her my designs in orange and off-white. But a couple of days later she asked me to design her brown western suit!” She adds, “She sent me a picture of herself with a woman lawyer — saying that she wants to wear the kind of suit the lady was wearing, as she would be playing a lawyer in one of her forthcoming films and she wanted to prepare for the role”
As a response, Pria refused to go ahead with such an awful idea. This offended the sexy siren. However, Mallika’s spokesperson told a different story, “Mallika was to speak on behalf of the charity devoted to victims of domestic abuse. She thought it most appropriate to wear an outfit that fit the occasion and did not detract from the message. When it was understood that designer Pria did not and could not make anything for Mallika that complemented the serious issue, Mallika purchased a professional suit from Christian Dior. In any case, Mallika will continue to devote her time and efforts for good causes like Jagriti and she thinks Pria is a talented designer whose clothes she looks forward to wearing in the future.”
