Mallika Sherawat’s Hollywood film Love, Barack or Politics Of Love might not see the light of day. The movie which Mallika signed during her stay in LA might end up gathering dust in the cans because the film reportedly has no distributors.
As the movie is unlikely to have a theatrical release, it’s possible that it might release directly on DVD, which is said to be a common practice in the West. Directed by William Dear and staring Laz Alonso of Avatar fame, Love, Barack was Mallika’s second international project after Hisss which was a Hollywood-Bollywood collaboration. In Politics of Love Mallika plays a young politico Aretha Gupta who is a democrat and a firm supporter of Obama.
Reports have it that one of the reasons behind the problem is recession-stuck film distribution market in the west. And since the film stars a lesser-known Afro-American actor it becomes harder to get a distributor.
It is indeed sad news for Mallika, who’s had her one foot in Hollywood for quite some time. All the PR she did for the last two years seems to have gone in vain. We just hope that the movie doesn’t get stuck in limbo.
