Mallika Sherawat (born October 24, 1981 as Reema Lamba) is an Indian actress and model

Mallika Sherawat on the April 2005 cover of Cosmopolitan India magazine


She was born Reema Lamba but adopted the screen name of Mallika to avoid confusion with other actresses named Reema. Mallika meaning "empress" is what she likes to call herself. Sherawat is her mother's maiden surname, and adopting the name was an acknowledgement to her mother's support in making Reema an actress. She was a good shooter too. . She is infamously known for her controversial sex related statements and is the first Indian actress to work with Jackie Chan. She has a degree in Philosophy from Miranda House College, Delhi University.

In July 2004, the film producers' union IMPAA had banned Mallika from Bollywood, after a complaint filed by filmmaker Ramesh Sharma over breach of contract, and refusal to turn up on the dates committed for the film Kab Kyun Kahan (started in 1999).

Mallika acquired a sex symbol tag after the film Murder (2004) in which she starred, became one of the most successful films of the year.
