She went up to McLeodganj - the abode of Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama. This is her first visit to Dharamsala town.
She is here with one of the three finalists of the show, Vijay Singh - a local resident. Most of the scenes were shot in the McLeodganj market. Hordes of fans gathered in the market to have a glimpse of the “Murder” star.
Though there was a huge crowd, the actress did not face any security issues here like her native village in Haryana. Adequate security arrangements were put in place to keep the crowd under control.
Heavy rain in the afternoon hampered the shooting and the unit had to pack up as showers continued till evening. Earlier also, rain had delayed the shooting as the entire unit had to travel to Dharamsala in a bus after regular flights to Kangra were cancelled on Wednesday and Thursday.
Meanwhile, shooting at Vijay Singh's house near Dharamsala town in the evening, Mallika donned a traditional wear, Launchiri - a flared skirt worn by Gaddi women.
Vijay Singh belongs to the Gaddi community. These tribes mainly dwell around Dhauladhar mountains in Kangra and Chamba districts. The shooting of the show will conclude on Saturday.
