Mallika Sherawat’s tryst with President Barack Obama

mallika-sherawat-1Mallika Sherawat is all set for a tryst with the United States elections and President Barack Obama. The experience, however, will be restricted to the big screen only.The sultry diva will star in Doug McHenry’s romantic comedy, Love, Barack . The film tracks the romance between a Democrat campaign volunteer and her Republican counterpart in the run- up to last year’s Presidential election in the US. Mallika confirms the development on her Twitter account. Her character, Aretha Gupta, is inspired by Kamala Harris, the attorney general of San Francisco. Some time back, the Bollywood sizzler had tweeted: ” I will B ‘ shadowing’ her ( Harris) to research my new movie.” Come to think of it, Mallika truly needs a push in her career considering she has no new film in hand in Bollywood after flops such as Ugly Aur Pagli and Maan Gaye Mughall- E- Azam .

Her next film, Jennifer Lynch’s international horror production, Hisss , has also been delayed for quite some time.Right now, Mallika is working on an American accent for Love, Barack , a film with an all- American cast.She writes on Twitter: ” It’s an amazing role I’m working hard at. I’m ready,” adding: ” One of the great things about western cinema is the diversity of female roles.” Mallika goes on to state that ” Kamala is a great inspiration and to play a part inspired by her is an actress’s dream.” Gary Goldstein, famed for co- producing the Julia Roberts- Richard Gere blockbuster Pretty Woman , has scripted Love, Barack . For some time now, Mallika has been constantly boasting about her extensive research on the life of Kamala.She had also attended a dinner with Kamala, a woman of Indian and African- American descent.” Studyn her 4 a film,” she had enthusiastically tweeted.

Kamala happens to be the first woman district attorney to be elected in San Francisco and the first African- American elected as district attorney in California.She is also a candidate for the prestigious post of the attorney general of California in 2010.Love, Barack had hit the floors in Los Angeles on January 13 this year.Bollywood filmmaker Govind Menon is co- producing the film along with Hollywood producer and William Keenan’s company Nuclear Mango.In fact, Goldstein, a celebrity in his own right, has written the script based on Menon and Keenan’s idea.” Just like Slumdog Millionaire , the projects that Menon and Keenan are producing demonstrate that cinema can bring people together from diverse backgrounds and their film stories will have worldwide appeal,” said director McHenry in a recent interview.

Mallika claims Hisss has been the hardest but most rewarding film she has ever worked on. ” It’s east- west collaboration but will be unlike anything ever seen in Bollywood. It’s something Hollywood is already excited about,” she claims.Mallika, meanwhile, is making news for her self- proclaimed meetings with highprofile global celebrities. Soon after Yanni dedicating a song to her, she says she has met Sean Penn, Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaghey, Queen Latifah and Ben Stiller.Recently, she received the Honourary Citizen Award of Los Angeles for her contribution as a foreigner. ” This is my biggest achievement so far,” said the actress, who mostly lives in LA these days.
