Mumbai: Mallika Sherawat may be known for her bold roles and glamorous item numbers but the actress now wants to do performance-oriented films.

"Now I want to do performance-oriented roles. I don`t want to do glamorous roles and item songs. It is a conscious decision that I have taken. I do get lots of offers for item songs and glam roles but it is a deliberate choice not to do it," she said.

In an image overhaul, Mallika will be seen in a complete desi avatar in her upcoming film `Dirty Politics`, where she essays the role of Anokhi Devi, based on Jodhpur`s Bhanwari Devi, who was killed under mysterious circumstances after her alleged relationship with politicians.

The film directed by KC Bokadia, stars Om Puri, Jackie Shroff, Anupam Kher, Ashutosh Rana in key roles.

In her last release `Kismat Love Paisa Dilli`, she played the role of a girl-next-door. The film bombed at the box office.

Despite having starred in Bollywood films like `Murder`, `Bachke Rehna Re Baba`, `Pyar Ke Side Effects`, `Welcome`, `Ugly Aur Pagli` among others, it`s Mallika`s item numbers that have kept her on the film map.

Also, there were reports that Mallika had moved to Los Angeles to focus on a Hollywood career but she denies it.

"I have not moved to LA. It is not true that I have shifted my base there. I was doing a movie `Politics of Love` hence I went there but that was only for shooting. Apart from that I do go for parties and social-dos," she said.
