Reason: The filmmakers announced her name without waiting for her confirmation

KC Bokadia’s upcoming film on murder victim Bhanwari Devi has met with a roadblock. Apparently Mallika Sherawat, who was said to be essaying a character based on Bhanwari, has said no to the film.

A source informs us, “Mallika was approached to play the role of Anokhi Devi and the film was inspired from Bhanwari Devi. Jackie Shroff, Om Puri and Ashutosh Rana were to co-star in the film. Though Mallika reminded them to send her the film script, the makers never sent it. To top it all, Bokadia went ahead and announced her name.”

Apparently, Mallika’s brother Vikram Lamba is extremely upset over this and the fact that the makers wanted to garner publicity at her cost.” A source from the actress’ office confirms our news, “Yes, it is true that Mallika is not doing Bokadia’s film. Also, Vikram was miffed as the makers used Mallika’s name without her even saying yes to the film.”
