Mallika Sherawat compares her film Murder with Gehraiyaan – “What Deepika Padukone did, I did that 15 years ago”
The actress added that she has never been appreciated for her acting and people always focus on her body and glamour. According to Prabhat Khabar, when asked about the changes that the new age brought in the film industry, Mallika said, “Earlier, the heroines were either too good, sati-savitri types who were too innocent to know anything, or they were the characterless vamps.
“These were the only two types of roles written for heroines,” she continued. “The change that we see now, shows women as humans. She can be happy or sad. She can make mistakes, she can falter, and you love them despite all of that. The heroines are more confident about their bodies as well. Such hue and cry was created when I did Murder. People said all kinds of things about the kiss and the bikini. What Deepika Padukone did in Gehraaiyaan, I did that 15 years ago, but people were too narrow-minded back then.”
“I should tell you that a section of the industry and media was mentally torturing me,” she added. “These people only talked about my body and glamour, not my acting. I worked in Dashavataram, Pyaar Ke Side Effects and Welcome but none talked about my acting.” Deepika featured in Shakun Batra's Gehraiyaan, a film that explored the grey areas of modern relationships. co-starring Ananya Panday, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Dhairya Karwa released on Amazon Prime Video on February 11.
