Mallika Sherawat shot to fame with Murder in 2004. The actor said that her bold and uninhibited image became a point for people to pass judgements on her character. Mallika said that after the film people thought that she would easily ‘compromise’

In an interview with PTI, Mallika said, “There were so many accusations and judgements on me. If you wear short skirts, kiss on screen then you’re a fallen woman with no morals. Men tend to take liberties with you. This happened with me too.”

Mallika said, “I’m a very headstrong woman, I can’t compromise. I’ve a lot of pride and self respect. There were times when directors have called me and said ‘come to me at 3 am.’

“I was so scared to talk about it because I thought they are going to blame me, that I must’ve behaved in such a way that prompted the director to say this. There is that victim blaming mentality which exists in our society and I always felt scared to talk about these things,” she added.

“My story, where I come from and what I battled, was overlooked, and it was all about how many kissing scenes I had. It made me insecure because I thought I had so much more to offer. But there was only one aspect of mine being highlighted and I really suffered because of that,” Mallika concluded.
