Mallika Sherawat was a part of Welcome, but she wasn’t a part of the sequel Welcome Back. While talking to Pinkvilla, she recently opened up about why she was not there in Welcome Back.
When she was asked about a possibility of another sequel of Welcome, the actress said, “Welcome ka sequel banega toh director apni girlfriend ko hi dalega na usmein. Welcome 2 bana toh usmein apni girlfriend ko daal diya batao, ab main kya karun? (If a sequel of Welcome is made, then the director will only cast his girlfriend. When Welcome 2 was made, he cast his girlfriend in the film. What do I do now?).”
She said that she would not like to take the name, however she added, “But this is true. When they make a sequel they cast their girlfriend, the hero casts his girlfriend, what do I do then? I don’t have any boyfriend in Bollywood, I have never been with any actor, director or producer. With me like this is my work, if you think I am worthy of your project I would love to be a part of it. But if a director, or a producer or an actor – if they want to cast their girlfriends then it’s their choice.”
When asked her if she lost out on Welcome 2 because of that, the actress said, “Absolutely. What should I do? That is the only reason I lost out.”
Mallika recent made her comeback with a web series titled Nakaab.
