Meeting Obama filled me with pride: Mallika Sherawat
Mallika Sherawat, who has been spotted with Hollywood celebrities like Sharon Stone, Zoe Saldana and Jake Gyllenhaal, says her most memorable so far has been meeting the US president Barack Obama.
She met Obama at a tea party in Los Angeles in April.
"The most memorable memory for me, when I felt really proud to be an Indian, was when I met president Barack Obama and I told him about Bollywood. How we all love him there and I invited him here and he said that I will take up your invitation for sure. That is the most memorable memory for me," said Mallika here at a press conference to announce her performance at Hotel Tulip Star's New Year's Eve show.
Mallika shifted base to Los Angeles after she received an honorary citizenship of LA for her career achievements and charitable efforts in 2009. Even though, on and off, she has been visiting India and featured in films like "Thank You" and "Double Dhamaal", one thing she misses the most in LA is her brother.
"To spend more time with my brother. That is what I miss the most in LA. I don't get to spend more time with my brother and I miss spending time with him," said Mallika who was also seen in a Hollywood flick "Politics Of Love" in 2011 and is in India to shoot for Sanjay Khanduri's "Kismat Love Paisa Delhi" opposite Vivek Oberoi.
Mallika debuted in Bollywood with a special appearance in "Jeena Sirf Mere Liye" and then signed "Khwahish", her first film as a lead actress. It was followed by "Pyaar Ke Side Effects" and "Welcome".
She played an Indian princess in Jackie Chan's Chinese film "The Myth".
