Ten things we love about Mallika Sherawat

If there one's thing Mallika Sherawat is not, it's regular. Her sassy ways and sizzling shape grab immediate attention anywhere her name pops up.

The sexy lady is making news (or should that be newsss) again for her big Hollywood debut, Hisss a horror fantasy, directed by Jennifer Lynch, daughter of acclaimed filmmaker David Lynch, in which she plays an angry snake woman.

How wow is that? But that's not the only reason to dig the Murder babe. Here's a list of 10 things we love about Ms Sherawat:

1. Perfect 10 body

She's got one of the hottest bodies in the business and knows it too. A drool-worthy mix of curvaceous and toned, Mallika follows a healthy, fitness regime in order to nab the title of Bollywood's leading sex-symbol each and every time.

2. Mallika the minimalist!

Fine, so she's no Lady Gaga. Then again, and understandably too, a delectable figure like hers needs an equally scorching wardrobe to complement it nice and good.

That ought to explain Mallika's fascination with shockingly low neck-lines, skirt-slits and backless avatars highlighting her assets to the hilt.

3. Quote-wending machine

Her racy tongue and candid attitude makes the Pyaar Ke Side Effects star every interviewer's dream come true. In fact, she could publish a compilation of her quotes and rake some more moolah. Here's a sample or two:
'I haven't met a man who has more b**** than I do.'

'Kisses on screen. Imagine more in rehearsals, takes and retakes. If a hero can enjoy it, why can't I? Both of us had a great time.'

One could learn a thing or two from Mallika about self-plugging. Be it her Cannes stint with Jackie Chan where she overshadowed all and sundry going overboard with her enthusiasm and cleavage-popping outfit.

Or her exceptional social networking skills, highlighting her Hollywood stint by posing with international celebrities like Johnny Depp, Sting and Salma Hayek, to the extent that her Twitter handle reads MallikaLA.

Discounting the countless box office turkeys; besides earlier hits like Murder and Pyaar Ke Side Effects, which had her as leading lady, Mallika has mostly made a career out of glamorous supporting parts or item songs in successful films like Welcome, Guru and Dasavathaaram and yet managed to be one of Bollywood's most talked-about and sought-after brands.

8. Witty repartees, Mallika ishtyle!

At a time when most actresses of her league are either coy or icy, Mallika's bindaas, zany sense of humour is rather refreshing. 

Like when a fan on Twitter queried her about climbing atop a road lamp in the trailer of Hisss, the star doled out a naughty response, 'Snakes are cold-blooded, I was naked + had to keep warm ;).'

9. Lady Hashmi!

If Emraan Hashmi is Bollywood's resident kisser, his Murder co-star isn't far behind.

From Rahul Bose to Ranvir Shorey, she's locked lips with almost all her screen heroes. Not to forget her much-publicised  17 kisses with model turned actor Himanshu Malik in a shabby Love Story rip-off, Khwahish.

From Rohtak to LA, the journey of Reema Lamba to Mallika Sherawat has been a wild ride but the actress stuck to her guns, unafraid of being judged or derided for her unorthodox personality till she was acknowledged as a success story in her own right.
