Mallika Sherawat is right now promoting her forthcoming movie RK/RKay. In a recent interaction, Mallika talked about her Bollywood career and how she made her international debut with Jackie Chan’s Chinese movie The Myth in 2005. While opening up about the movie, she uncovered that Jackie showed him the tapes of other Bollywood entertainers who had auditioned for the movie.
In a recent interaction with Mashable India, Mallika recalled the time when she auditioned for The Myth. She said, “I got the role via audition and I am very proud to say that he auditioned every actress in Bollywood. So all these actresses jo chui mui bann ke kehti hain ‘hum toh kabhi audition nahi karti’ woh sab jhooth bol rahi hain (So all these female actors who claim that they never went for the audition are lying). I have seen their auditions. Jackie showed me their audition tapes. They loved me. They loved my fitness because I do a lot of yoga. I have a flexible body.”
Opening up about Jackie Chan, she said, “He is a great guy. Very wonderful, helpful. He opened doors for me in Hollywood. He really supported me. When I got Myth, I decided to do all the action for the film but that was the worst decision of my life.”
Mallika’s forthcoming movie RK/RKay will release on July 22.
