What Aishwarya Rai did in the West – by winning the title of the most beautiful woman in the world from Julia Roberts and also being included among the most influential 100 people of Asia by Western media – Mallika Sherawat seems to have replicated in her own special way by earning a place in the hearts of the people in the East. If she can't conquer the West, she has brought glory to herself by becoming a well-known and admired icon in the East, which is becoming equally Bollywood-conscious!
The leading Hong Kong fashion and beauty magazine Cover has honored Mallika by including her in the 100 most beautiful people in Asia. The magazine is regarded as an authority on fashion, beauty and entertainment in the Asia Pacific region, says DNA.
Giving reasons for this choice, Editor Ellie O'Ready says, "Mallika is truly one of the 100 most beautiful people in Asia and our list just wouldn't be complete without her." Cover magazine will follow this honor to Mallika by doing a major pictorial feature and interview with the Murder star within the next few weeks.
Mallika began her 'career' in the East when she was chosen by Jackie Chan, the superstar of the East, for a role in his film The Myth. Mallika soon had the opportunity to walk the red carpet with the world famous actor in Cannes where the film was shown. Chan, at that time, had remarked that he had chosen her for his film because she was 'well-endowed'!
