She stormed into the scene with spunk, sass and oodles of sultriness that set a new precedent for female-centric roles and films. Following films like Khwahish (2003) and Murder (2004), Mallika switched to romantic comedies like Pyaar Ke Side Effects (2006), Welcome (2007) and Double Dhamaal (2011). She dabbled a cross over to Hollywood with films like Hisss (2010) and Politics of Love (2011). In recent times, the Haryana girl with a degree in philosophy has been involved with women's rights activism. During the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, Mallika had herself locked in a cage for twelve hours to support the Free A Girl India NGO. On the fashion front, Mallika rings in a distinct charm with a proclivity to pull off racy cuts, bold hues, unconventional silhouettes. She turns a year older today.
