Bollywood hottie Mallika Sherawat refused to dare-bare for Double Dhamaal. She has several reservations about her look and styling in the comic caper, says a media report.
The sudden change in stance of one of the industry's boldest and sexiest actress has taken the unit unawares.
Informs a source, "Her attitude has left everyone exasperated. It has taken not only the makers but also her co-stars by surprise. She is just not keen on going bare-dare."
Mallika maintains, "It's funny how obsessed everyone is with what I wear when all I am trying to do is, be true to the character." The actress adds, "First, there were reports that I was in a bikini in the first shot and now, that I've turned into a sati savitri. Neither version is entirely accurate."
Director Indra Kumar and producer Ashok Thakeria had signed her for the project even though she had been missing from the B-Town scene after her 2008 flick Maan Gaye Mughal-e-Azam.
She had moved to the US and made news for the promotions of her forthcoming flick Hisss occasionally with a python wrapped around her curves.
Double Dhamaal stars Sanjay Dutt, Kangna Ranaut, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Aashish Chaudhry and Jaaved Jaafery.
Mallika is paired with Dutt. Buzz was that the actress had given her nod to Double Dhamaal without a discussion over her fee with the makers. Apparently, she was delighted about being a part of the sequel and more importantly, working with Dutt.
