Mallika Sherawat recently completed filming an episode of the popular American television series "Hawaii Five-O" which required her presence in Hawaii for one month. Her presence on set for a month has attracted the attention of Bollywood media insiders as many are speculating that she might have made the breakthrough into Hollywood which might open the floodgates for more Indian women.
She is already a renowned, almost legendary presence in Bollywood and India as an outspoken proponent of women's rights in India and her filming of a role in such a popular series will almost certainly attract the attention of television and movie producers in North America but also other Indian actresses interested in acting in both Hollywood and Bollywood.
Mallika Sherawat was interviewed on MSNBC's "News Nation with Tamron Hall" and they discussed the need for equal opportunities for Indian women in India and how that is not the current situation in her homeland, a country she loves. Her enhanced profile within the United States and especially with the large Indian population in North America has put her in a position of being a trailblazer and she is not shying away from the role.
Entertainment insiders along with producers, directors, casting agents and film studio executives are taking a long look at the stunning Mallika Sherawat as their is a belief developing that she is someone who could attract the large Indian market that resides in North America and is available in India through Internet streaming of their projects.
Mallika Sherawat may have opened the door for Indian actresses with her recent appearance in "Hawaii Five-O" but this should not be surprising because she is someone who is always at the head of line blazing new paths with her beauty, talent and as an advocate for equal rights for Indian women.
