On the occasion, the city will recognise Ms Sherawat as an honorary citizen and present a resolution for her extraordinary career and charitable efforts.

Some of these will include her Hollywood friends like world-famous composer Yanni, film director Jay Chandrashekar, CAA super agent Emanuel Nunez, film director Jesse Dylan (son of musician Bob Dylan), Hisss director Jennifer Lynch and producer Govind Menon among others. Mallika has personally invited all of them to the event."
The event will be open to the public and Mallika will also sign autographs for fans before and after the event. The source adds, "Mallika has been residing in Los Angeles at a penthouse apartment in one of the most expensive areas of the city.
In a string of firsts, Mallika is also the first star from Asia to be invited to the Twitter headquarters and the first B-Town star to have a Hollywood milkshake named after her. She a favourite on the Los Angeles social scene, charitable circuit and even at rock- star parties.
