Mumbai: Controversies follow Mallika Sherawat like rains after
gathering clouds. To no one's surprise Mallika has fuelled a storm of
protests while playing Bhanwari Devi, the slain Rajasthani nurse in KC
Bokadia's new movie ‘Dirty Politics’.

In Indore for the shooting, Mallika apparently had unwanted visitors from
a particular political party who claimed the Bhanwari Devi scandal was
being dug up at another political party's behest.

But Bokadia, who knows real-life stories court controversies, has decided
to take the safe route out. He has made radical changes in the script and
the film is no longer being touted as Bhanwari Devi's story.

"My film is not about Bhanwari Devi. First of all Mallika is Anokhi Devi
in the film. Secondly Bhanwari Devi was a nurse. Mallika is not a nurse in
my film. The character in my film is not like the controversial nurse at
all. People are unnecessarily jumping to conclusions," says Bokadia.

Until recently both Bokadia and Mallika couldn't stop talking about the
real-life antecedents of her character. One hears there was a reality-curb
placed on Bokadia's ‘Dirty Politics’ after Mallika started getting
threat calls.

“We decided to steer away from the whole headline thing when politicians
jumped into the fray. We didn't want to face what Shekhar Kapoor had to go
through during 'Bandit Queen' or what Ekta Kapoor had to face during 'The
Dirty Picture',” said a source close to Bokadia.

Mallika has also been advised to go easy on talking about the biographical
aspect of the film. For Mallika's fans, who are dismayed to see the bold
actress wrapped up in a saree, here's some heartening news.

She will be doing some hot sizzling dance numbers.

“Mallika plays a dancer. She will do whatever the role requires,” said
