Bollywood’s highest rated item girl Mallika Sherawat has turned to a reptile in her new movie Hissss. The movie is a Hollywood-Bollywood co production, directed by Jennifer Lynch.
Mallika stars in the lead role of a movie which seems like a re-make of those snake women (naagin) films in which she takes revenge. The make-up is been done by noted artist Robert Kurtzman, who had done the work in Evil Dead. It took almost two make-up artists to do Mallika’s make-up using an advanced technology called MUFX.
It is said that Mallika couldn’t move in her natural way after the work and had to be carried to the sets.
The movie also stars Irrfan Khan in a lead role, who might be bearing the brunt of the naagin.
Jennifer is the daughter of Oscar nominee David Lynch and her last movie was Surveillance, starring Bill Pullman and Julia Ormand.
Hissss is produced by Vikram Singh and Govind Menon of Split Image Pictures. Reports say that sound effects specialist Patrick Girardi and choreographer Madhu Ambat are also part of the project.
Some previous snake men/women movie were ‘Naagin’, ‘Nagina’ and ‘Jaani Dushman’.
