The title of next film plays on a popular expletive acronym. But actor Mallika Sherawat has a different take on the four words that make up the title of the film: Kismet Love Paisa Dilli (KLPD). We get her to break down what those four words mean to her.

Kismet (Destiny)
Kismet does play a huge part in every person’s life. Your destiny is very important, but remember it is shaped by your own karma. I have always believed in kismet, and coming from a conservative, traditional Haryanvi background, it has been an important aspect of my life. I belong to a place, which is extremely male-dominated and where women are not even allowed to venture out of the house, I have managed to make a career in Bollywood and have traveled all over the world. I have been to the White House to meet Barack Obama. Isn’t this all but destiny?

Love
Love is all encompassing. It is a great feeling, especially for me because I get so much of it from fans. One of them has even tattooed my name on his wrist! I am also a very romantic person, that’s why my favourite song in KLPD is ‘Dishkiyaon’. I absolutely love the romance in it. However one needs to give a certain amount of time and devotion to maintain a steady relationship. I don’t have that kind of time right now; I am constantly on the move. But I will always be ready to fall in love, if the right man comes along. Right now, I am absolutely single.

Paisa (Money)
This is one word that probably every politician in the country loves! But for me, personally, money is only important to ensure a normal and comfortable life. You should be independent and have enough money to live your life with dignity.

Dilli (Delhi)
I love Delhi. I have studied at Miranda House College and have grown up there, so, it will always have a very nostalgic value for me. That’s why this movie is so special to me — because it brought out all the colours and flavours associated with the city. All of this comes out gloriously in the movie.
