The thing is that I like being myself. I find it very tiresome to put up a fake smile, say the right things, and be diplomatic. It's just not in my personality to be like that.

Mallika Sherawat is an Indian film actress. Born in Rohtak, Haryana, India on 24 October, 1976


  • I am single. Waiting for a man who has more balls than me [1]

  • Being sex symbol is lot of hard work, and requires Spartan discipline. I work out, I don't go to parties, I do not smoke or drink alcohol, I am Vegetarian and I am asleep by 10pm.[1]

  • I think a woman who's confident, who's aware of her own abilities and her own limitations and who accepts gracefully failure as part of her life. All this combination makes a beautiful woman.[2]

  • I've slogged like crazy to get where I am. And those who think it's just my body that got me where I am, they should take a look at the others who have rushed in after me. They haven't gone beyond their first feverish film. [1]

  • Who cares what people say about me? I am right on the ball. And I don't think one should take oneself too seriously. Be like the laughing Buddha, I always say, smile through life! It will immediately look better!

  • I never wanted to belong to a crowd. I never had a herd mentality... I always knew what I wanted and I made sure I got it. And I always knew that I wanted to be an actress. I exist because I can act. I will not sit here and say, 'Arrey, by chance, offer aa gaya' (I got the offer by chance). No, I made acting happen to me. The first opportunity I got to act, I grabbed it. Nobody had even heard of me till a couple of years ago. But it's by sheer hard work and focus that I am here. Also, I think I chose the right scripts. Like Robert De Niro says, 'Talent is in the choice you make!'.

  • Isn't it great that I evoke a reaction from people? Whether it is good or bad is secondary. The thing is that I like being myself. I find it very tiresome to put up a fake smile, say the right things, and be diplomatic. It's just not in my personality to be like that.

  • If a chemical drug like Viagra is accepted by society and by the world to ignite desire, then what is the problem with my audio-visual drug called cinema which ignites desire? Both are basically doing the same thing!
    • Cine Blitz magazine (May 2006)

  • I may not be here to titillate, but I am not sorry if I have that edge. People aren't coming to the theaters to see me in a burqa
    • Movie Mag International (September 2004)

  • I would like to say I handle criticism well. In fact I enjoy reading the comments of the critics. It's great to have critics blasting you all the time. It keeps you on your toes, spurs you, challenges you, makes you want to get better. I take everything positively. There's so much to learn and do.

  • To undress is the dress code these days and I didn't start it. We are all voyeurs, so why the complaints? Until girls don't walk in a swimsuit on the stage they don't get the crown so why is everyone so holier-than-thou? [3]

  • Mallika - Bashers have to be only a tiny speck compared to the population of George Bush bashers…. he still won the election. Didn't he? And he is having the last laugh. Now I don't particularly like George Bush, but do you think he cares? [1]

  • Whew! Did I say too much? Will I offend these linguistically challenged gossip columnists posing as Journalists whose writing is pathetic than my acting [1]

  • The people who criticize me are the same who go Sania Mirza's only number 32 in the world. SNICKER SNICKER! You pathetic assholes - She is laughing all the way to the Bank and has gone where no other Indian woman has gone before. She's been on the Wimbledon's Center Court and I have walked the Red Carpet at Cannes and Toronto. Win or Loose, we have been there and you are struggling with your Thesaurus to find the new derogatory words. [1]
