Mallika Sherawat To Be Biased Towards Women Contestants In Chak Dhoom Dhoom
Bollywood’s bold beauty Mallika Sherawat has finally started thinking about her fans below 18 and in a bid to build a connection with her fans the beauty has turned to small screen. Presently Mallika is judging the dance reality show Chak Dhoom Dhoom on Colors.
"TV has a huge reach and my films as it is are only for people above the age of 18. So I thought it`s a great opportunity. Who`s going to wait for them to turn 18 and then watch my films?" Mallika was quoted as saying.
"And also why not try something different. I`ve always tried different things in my career. If everyone`s gone left, I`ve gone right. I`ve made very unusual choices and some worked, some didn`t. But I`ve not followed a prescribed path. And similarly this time too," she added.
The sex symbol who hails from Rohtak, Haryana strongly believes that people from small town should be provided a platform to showcase their talents.
"My life`s struggle has been the same since I had no film background and Bollywood`s system is very dynastic - people just want to promote their own people. So it was very important for me that people from small towns get a platform to showcase their talent. I felt an emotional connect with the show," said the actress.
Mallika said, "I feel I owe it to people from small towns because once upon a time I was one of them. Of course, I`m being paid very handsomely for this show, but that was not the deciding factor.”
Meanwhile, the actress, often known as outspoken revealed that she will be little soft towards women contestants. "I`ll be a little biased towards females. I`m being honest enough to say that."
Mallika also spoke about her judging parameters, "I won`t judge the technical aspects of dance. For me, the entertainment factor and the X factor will work. The attitude, the expressions are what I`ll be concentrating on.”
"I had a lot of disagreements with Jaaved and Terrence because they go so deep in their judging. Both of them are brilliant dancers, but I don`t go into so many technicalities and sometimes I even fight for the teams and argue that they should be given a chance," she added.
The hottie will soon be seen her next Double Dhamaal, the sequel to the 2007 film, Dhamaal. The film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Jaaved Jaaferi, Riteish Deshmukh, Ashish Chowdhry and Aftab Shivdasani.
