Bollywood siren Mallika Sherawat is set to steam up the big screen playing an ex-CIA agent in a movie with veteran actor Kamal Hassan.
Ravi Kumar, director of the movie "Dasavatharam" or "Ten Incarnations" said Sherawat agreed to do the movie even before she saw the script since she was very keen to work with Hassan.
"She plays a bold, modern girl," Kumar said of Sherawat who's famous for having performed 17 kissing scenes in her debut film "Jeena Sirf Mere Liye," or "Live Only For Me" in 2002.
"If there is Mallika, there have to be hot scenes," he said when asked by Mumbai-based DNA newspaper about the scenes between Hassan and Sherawat.
Hassan is a well-known, versatile actor in India and Sherawat has her share of fans and critics due to her string of scantily clad appearances in movies. Sherawat played an Indian princess in her latest movie "The Myth" with Hong Kong movie hero Jackie Chan.
Indian movies have become increasingly explicit in recent years even though Indian society has remained largely conservative.
