Mallika Sherawat's recent lack of success at the box office and her being rarely included in discussions concerning the Indian actresses who would be best suited for roles in mainstream Hollywood/Bollywood collaborations has some entertainment observers believing that if she wants to return to being a viable candidate that she needs to take on some provocative, image changing roles in both the United States and India.
In 2014 she was one of the most talked about actresses in Bollywood because of her appearance in a supporting role in the popular U.S. television series "Hawaii Five-O". However, since her appearance in "Hawaii Five-O" she has filmed the movie "Dirty Politics" which has not enjoyed much success at the box office and seems to not have a plan as to what type of image she wants to create as an actress.
Some entertainment observers were expecting her career to explode after her appearance on "Hawaii Five-O" but she seems to have not prepared a plan for how she was going to take advantage of her enhanced profile following her role in the episode.
The fact that after her appearance on "Hawaii Five-O" she went back to Bollywood before securing parts or roles that would have her 'step out of her comfort zone' has not been won her many new fans and has some entertainment observers questioning her resolve. Her return to playing the lead role in the controversial Bollywood big screen project "Dirty Politics", a movie that is still relatively tame in comparison to the roles she might have played in U.S. based project, reportedly has some entertainment insiders and observers thinking of her as "all talk and no action."
There is a huge difference between appearing topless on-screen and investing completely in a character that might require one to be a wife, lover, or mistress in a project and a question that is starting to be asked of Mallika Sherawat is whether she is ready to show that she can play such a challenging role or was all the talk about her wanting to show that she wanted to be a Hollywood/Bollywood star just 'hot air'.
Mallika Sherawat has the looks and the talent according to some entertainment insiders to be a Hollywood/Bollywood star but now she has to prove with her actions that she is more than just 'talk' which some of her fans are hoping she will do once she returns from her European vacation.
