“Mallika, the temperature and glamour quotient at Twitter has gone way up!” is what the CEO of Twitter, Evan Williams exclaimed as the Bollywood siren arrived at the Twitter HQ in San Francisco yesterday.
Mallika arrived in a stretch limousine, with fans and media channels waiting outside for her. The actress was mobbed for an hour by fans and press, signing autographs and doing interviews.
“I’m honored to be the first Asian star to be invited to Twitter. Jai Ho!” gushed an excited Mallika.
Mallika greeted fans, signed autographs and posed for pictures outside Twitter’s headquarters and then gave some inspirational remarks to Twitter employees during the lunch break.
At the request of a Twitter executive, Mallika even showed the employees a few Bollywood dance moves, and then the whole company joined in for the jhatka-matkas, prompting a spontaneous company dance party!
Twitter staff members informed Mallika’s producers that “Since Mallika joined the Twitter service, membership in India has skyrocketed.”
The promo of Mallika’s forthcoming film HISSS was also shown to the Twitter employees during their lunch break and received a tumultuous applause.
A coconut was broken by her producers in front of the Twitter office.
Sherawat is expected to soon hit the silver screen in the film HISSS, directed by Hollywood filmmaker Jennifer Lynch (daughter of David Lynch), in which she plays a snake woman.
Meanwhile, word is that San Francisco’s District Attorney Kamala Harris has served as inspiration for a film about to hit production this summer in Los Angeles starring Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat.
The actress has “tweeted” about how “I’ll B ‘shadowing’ her to research my new film role. I play ‘Aretha Gupta’, inspired by Kamala:-)”
