Mallika is back in the news, however this time its not for her objectionable scenes or international projects but for a video thats gone viral. A video that shows her having heated arguments with a reporter at a press conference stating that she wont lie about Indian society problems even if it was in front of foreign press has made her very popular amongst the people.
The actress got the better of the media as she stuck to being frank an honest about her answers. The argument originated when Mallika had discussed Indian issues while interviewing for an international magazine. Apparently the actress speaks about issues India faces like female infanticide, rape, killing for honor and many. The actress although did make some relevant points regarding double standards existing with women also received a lot of criticism for presenting India as a very grim country.
Mallika is being praised for honesty and bringing issues to notice but that doesn't stop people from making fun of her funny accent all over social sites and blogs. This video has somehow managed to put mallika in the limelight for the all the wrong reasons but definitely favouring her. Some are even claiming her as an example to Soma Choudhary who is also under tremendous heat for her statements made in the Tehelka case.
Mallika's statements sure made her fan list a little longer as many are appreciating her confidence and boldness whereas many feel the incident was exaggerated and instead of her statements being focused on the drama that surrounded it is being more highlighted.
