Controversies follow Mallika Sherawat like rains after gathering clouds. To no one's surprise Mallika has fuelled a storm of protests while playing Bhanwari Devi, the slain Rajasthani nurse in KC Bokadia's "Dirty Politics".
In Indore for the shooting, Mallika apparently had unwanted visitors from a particular political party who claimed the Bhanwari Devi scandal was being dug up at another political party's behest.
But Bokadia, who knows real-life stories court controversies, has decided to take the safe route out. He has made radical changes in the script. And the film is no longer being touted as Bhanwari Devi's story.
"My film is not about Bhanwari Devi. First of all Mallika is Anokhi Devi in the film. Secondly Bhanwari Devi was a nurse. Mallika is not a nurse in my film. The character in my film is not like the controversial nurse at all. People are unnecessarily jumping to conclusions," says Bokadia.
Until recently both Bokadia and Mallika couldn't stop talking about the real-life antecedents of her character. One hears there was a reality-curb placed on Bokadia's "Dirty Politics" after Mallika started getting threat calls.
"We decided to steer away from the whole headline thing when politicians jumped into the fray. We didn't want to face what Shekhar Kapoor had to go through during 'Bandit Queen' or what Ekta Kapoor had to face during 'The Dirty Picture'," said a source close to Bokadia.
Mallika has also been advised to go easy on talking about the biographical aspect of the film. For Mallika's fans, who are dismayed to see the bold actress wrapped up in a saree, here's some heartening news.
She will be doing some hot sizzling dance numbers.
"Mallika plays a dancer. She will do whatever the role requires," said Bokadia.
