According to reports in Hindustan Times, Mallika Sherawat said that Kamala Harris not only gave her great advice but also made her feel comfortable at a time when she felt like a fish out of water.
In an interview with The Times of India, Mallika Sherawat said that Kamala Harris gives hope and a voice to the voiceless. Mallika revealed the advice Kamala had given her while she was prepping for Politics Of Love, “She was extremely helpful when I met her while prepping for Politics of Love. I played a Democrat volunteer who’s half-Indian, half-African-American in the film. I remember she gave me great advice. She had told me to try to keep the character balanced, and the film to represent both sides – the Democrats and the Republicans.”
Mallika, who made her Hollywood debut with Politics Of Love, also revealed that Kamala helped her feel comfortable in the U.S. “I was feeling like a fish out of water in Los Angeles at that time. It was a different country and culture, but Kamala put me at ease. I remember her telling me, ‘Getting out of your comfort zone is good to build character, it will make you a stronger person’,” she said.
After the U.S. elections, a 2009 tweet of Mallika Sherawat about meeting Kamala Haris is going viral again. “Having fun at a fancy event with a woman who they say could be U.S. President, Kamala Harris. Chicks rule!,” she had written in the tweet. In a Facebook post from 2010, she had written, “With Kamala Harris, the attorney general of San Francisco. I was inspired by her for my role in Politics of Love…”
Well, we know that Kamala is sure winning hearts!
