Directors don`t take me seriously: Mallika Sherawat

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat rues that directors do not take her seriously because of her glamorous image; as a result she has no challenging roles in her kitty.

"I think because of my glamorous image, the serious directors do not take me seriously. I really hope they take me seriously and some challenging roles come to me," Mallika said in an interview.

"It doesn`t have to be a full-fledged main role, even a supporting role (would do). But it should have some acting scope in it," she added.

Besides Bollywood films like `Murder` and `Pyaar Ke Side Effects`, she has featured in Hollywood films like `The Myth` and `Hisss`.

Currently, she is all set to debut on TV with `The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika` to find her soulmate.

Meanwhile, she will be seen on the big screen in `Dirty Politics`, a film based on murdered Rajasthan nurse Bhanwari Devi.
