These days, Mallika has been covered up in some of her films but was supposed to be back to where she belonged with an erotic thriller by producer Ratan Jain. Titled Forbidden, it was supposed to be directed by a newcomer named Manish Gupta.
Mallika was supposed to play a debauched woman who seduces her stepson. Tusshar Kapoor and many others were considered for the role and Aditya Seal, who debuted opposite Manisha Koirala in Ek Chhoti Si Love Story, was finalized. But due to differences between the producer and the director, the project couldn't take off.
Manish Gupta has moved on to another project titled Stoneman Murders and put Forbidden on the backseat. This prompted the film's producer to shelve the project altogether.
Well, the fans of Mallika must have been sad not to see her in yet another overtly feisty and sexy role!
