You may have heard of celebrities paying off the paparazzi in order to get rid of them, but have you heard of celebrities hiring photographers just to make sure they stay in the limelight? Well, now you have. Yes, that's how Miss Mallika (LA) Sherawat ensures she's known among the Hollywood glitteratti.
It seems, this is the known formula that works in the Hollywood. "The Western media, especially Hollywood, feeds off the paparazzi culture. If you are photographed stepping out of a club or walking on the streets by one pap(arazzi), news will spread and they will be drawn, moths to flame. In no time at all, you're famous! Only celebs whose pics fetch money, are tracked," a source told Mid Day.In fact, the actress was spotted chatting with a 'photographer' and even posing around in front of him. The photographer later on turned out to be a friend posing as a 'paparazzi guy'!
The same video of Sherawat has been posted on http://www.hollywood.tv/ , which (of course) shows the lady talking in an American accent. In fact, the 'photographer' obligingly asks Mallika about "reports of working with the likes of Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp" and she laughs it off. She goes onto pose and pout for the video even showing off her newly purchased shades.
The actress will soon be appearing in an interview with US blogger Perez Hilton, a celebrity known to rip celebrities apart with his comments. Let's see what drama happens this time.
