Mallika Sherawat is ready to step into Madhubala's shoes for her soon to be released comedy, Maan Gaye Mughall E Azam produced by Venus Records And Tapes Pvt Ltd.
Interestingly, the film has got a few similarities with the Dilip Kumar starrer classic Mughal E Azam. Besides the title, Maan Gaye Mughall E Azam also retains the popular song, Pyar kiya to darna kya, from the original.
The song is set in a completely different format. While the lyrics have been penned by Sanjay Chhel, Anu Malik has composed the music for it. Says Anu Malik, "The song Pyar kiya toh darna kya is one of the greatest songs in the history of Indian cinema. No one can ever make such a beautiful song nor can anyone copy Madhubala or even forget her performance in the song."
Since it's a comedy, the song comes across as one of the stage performances done by the cast in the film. Ratan Jain, the producer of the film, says "The song has been picturised on Mallika and although it has been inspired from the old classic, it will have a different tune altogether."
Adds Anu Malik "It so happens that the cast play stage performers who sing the song in their own comic style. Many funny lines have been incorporated without any intension to hurt anyone."

PNC’s next film directed by Sachin Kamlakar Khot has all the ingredients of an unusual love story. Khot says, “It’s a rom-com but an unusual love story.
One expects the boy and girl to behave in a certain manner as romance comes with certain notions attached to it, but in Ugly Aur Pagli you will find this unique couple (Ranvir Sheorey and Mallika Sherawat) who re-define the notion of love and romance.”
Rangita Nandy adds, “We’ve heard of sweet romances coated in sugar. Now get set for a romance with a punch, some thuds and a whole load of serious arm-twisting. This is Bollywood’s quirkiest, kinkiest, funniest romance. It’s basically a vicious love story.”
Talking about her characters Rangita says, “Ranvir is Ugly a total nerd who believes he’s God’s gift to womankind while Pagli (Mallika) is a violent woman who looks at love like war.”
“Pagli doesn’t hesitate to pick up a fight with anybody. Nobody messes with Pagli pretty much what Mallika is like in real life. In fact in this film she saw a lot of herself in the character in many ways,” adds Rangita
Mallika’s look is unique, “We have given her a very 2008 look, hair coloured and with bangs. Ashley Rebello and Mallika have worked together on the concept. Ugly Aur Pagli will be a film where Ranvir will look his best.”
One of the highlights of the film according to Rangita is, “There’s a song where Mallika plays out every fantasy men can think of. She plays every sexy character that you have ever seen on screen. I really don’t care what Mallika is to the rest of the world but there’s a phenomenal audience who swears by her.”
