Our source recalls the incident, "A lot of industry people – actors, filmmakers and musicians were present for the Chautha. Everyone was coming in and after bowing down in front of the legendary filmmaker's photo frame was going towards Ravi Chopra and offering mute condolences passing ahead. But Mallika Sherawat could not contain herself doing just that and moving ahead. She spent a good few minutes chitchatting with Ravi Chopra offering him her condolences. She just wasn't stopping offering her words of encouragement and support to him. Chopra's uncomfortability was completely visible on his face but there was nothing that he could do to stop her apart from nodding his head in assertion.
Now what surprised everyone present was the fact that she is not even an acquaintance of Ravi Chopra leave alone being friends with him. She has also neither worked in any of the B.R. Productions films before nor is she slated to do any of their upcoming films. So what exactly was the reason of her arrival there and offering such a long condolence? Maybe perhaps she couldn't stop herself from hogging the attention even at a serious occasion like such."
