Mallika Sherawat goes green

Mallika Sherawat is taking her love for the organic a step further. The actress, who believes in the naturalist way of living will wear an Anita Dongre outfit bearing an environmental message to the opening of the luxury hotel
Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai. Says a source close to Sherawat, "Mallika will be flying to Dubai on November 19 for the opening (November 20) of Atlantis, The Palm. Kylie Minogue will perform at the party. Other stars expected include Denzel Washington, Sharon Stone, Robert De Niro and Oprah Winfrey among others."

The designer says, "I have given Mallika the option of wearing two gowns for the opening and a dress which she will wear at the party that night. They are fully embroidered, flesh-coloured gowns with sequins and crystals which will flatter Mallika's body beautifully. The dress is very interesting as it has a little message on nature. Apart from the fact that Mallika loves everything natural, I have been veering towards organic clothes of late. This dress, though not made of organic stuff has got a relevant theme with green as its basic color. All the outfits are fully hand-embroidered, high couture, timeless classic pieces and took three weeks to create."The developers and operators of the hotel have sent invites to 2000 guests including prominent CEOs, business leaders, politicians, actors and musicians and members of the Dubai Royal Family. The Palm Jumeirah has been cited as one of the newest icons of the world and Atlantis, The Palm, is set to be one of the most luxurious resorts in the Middle East, with 360° views of the ocean, restaurants from acclaimed chefs and an 11 million-litre marine habitat that is home to more than 65,000 animals. Palm Jumeirah Island will be lit up in a giant fireworks display on November 20.

Mallika makes Ravi Chopra uncomfortable

Actress Mallika Sherawat was an unusual visitor at veteran filmmaker B.R. Chopra's Chautha ceremony just a few days back. If you can unearth her connection with the Chopras let us know.

Our source recalls the incident, "A lot of industry people – actors, filmmakers and musicians were present for the Chautha. Everyone was coming in and after bowing down in front of the legendary filmmaker's photo frame was going towards Ravi Chopra and offering mute condolences passing ahead. But Mallika Sherawat could not contain herself doing just that and moving ahead. She spent a good few minutes chitchatting with Ravi Chopra offering him her condolences. She just wasn't stopping offering her words of encouragement and support to him. Chopra's uncomfortability was completely visible on his face but there was nothing that he could do to stop her apart from nodding his head in assertion.Now what surprised everyone present was the fact that she is not even an acquaintance of Ravi Chopra leave alone being friends with him. She has also neither worked in any of the B.R. Productions films before nor is she slated to do any of their upcoming films. So what exactly was the reason of her arrival there and offering such a long condolence? Maybe perhaps she couldn't stop herself from hogging the attention even at a serious occasion like such."
