Democrat Kamala Harris has become the first female and black vice-President of the United States. Indian actress Mallika Sherawat recalls the time when she interacted with Harris.
Mallika Sherawat has recalled the memories of when she played a role inspired by Kamala Harris in her Hollywood debut ‘Politics of Love’. In an interview with a local news source, she revealed how Harris helped her feel comfortable in the US.
“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’.”
‘Murder’ actress also said that Harris ‘gives hope and a voice to the voiceless’. She shared the memory that the vice-president had advised while she was doing the role. “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.”
“I play a half-Indian half-African American woman (like ‘the female Obama’ Kamala Harris) who falls in love with a black Republican! With a little hard work, combined with some gospel churchin’, hip-hop dance classes, and language lessons: I’ll be a swaggalicious suga mama in no time at all!” she added.
