Mallika Dua's last television outing as judge on The Great Indian Laughter Challenge proved to be controversial. She was suddenly ousted from the show and there was an uproar about a sexually-explicit comment thrown at her by Akshay Kumar, who was the celebrity judge on the show.

Mallika is now back on the scene with Midnight Misadventures With Mallika Dua. Yesterday, Rajkummar Rao shot for the show, which has celebrities rustling up a midnight snack while revealing secrets. Tanmay Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal and Badshah have also been lined up as guests.

Mallika will be seen as Shalishka in the TLC show, which will soon go on air. In each episode, Shalishka and one of her close friends will go on a gastronomical adventure. She will develop new recipes and there will be conversations, read a statement.

"I love the concept and I am co-developing it with the team especially because I am not a talk show host. I am an actor first and playing Shailishka gives me an opportunity to merge both fiction and non-fiction characters," Mallika said.

"On the other hand, we will also have real life guests coming in each episode. My character is completely different from the reality and it allows me to act and also to chat with a new celebrity each time and spill the beans on all their food related secrets. Lots for the senses and at the same time complete non-sense too," she added.
