Talking to Mashable India, Mallika said: “I felt so many judgments on me in India, I just wanted a break from it. They were burning my effigies. Some tried to shoot me saying she is spoiling Indian culture. I was feeling so attacked. I was an easy target because I had no support in Bollywood. Nobody would mess like that with a superstar’s daughter or son. Mahesh Bhatt once told me, ‘You keep on falling and crying, so some people in Bollywood enjoy that’ and this is what I experienced.” Further, she said that she thought that she has many enough money and has also gained popularity in Bollywood, so she wanted to experience a different culture. “I packed my bags and off I went to LA and Jackie Chan said, ‘don’t worry, you just land there in LA and you’ll get the red carpet treatment’, and I did. He organised everything for me, and I met some fantastic people there,” Mallika Sherawat said.
