Govind Menon told Mumbai Mirror, "Mallika has done most of the nude scenes in Hisss herself. She is a very committed artiste."
The fact that a woman was directing the movie helped Mallika. "Working with a woman director made Mallika very, very comfortable," added Menon. You know what, we talk about competing with the best cinema in the world. For this, we should be ready to do what Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek do, or else we should simply stay at home."
According to Menon, Mallika used body double only for a scene or two.
Added Menon, "It was only when she crawls in the mud that she opted for a body double. Moreover, it was very cold that day. The mud scenes were very physically cumbersome. She used the body double for a stunt or two as it would have been dangerous for her to jump. There is no body double in any of the several scenes where she transforms into a snake. Come to think of it, the whole concept of nudity is justified because when you transform into a snake, which Mallika often does in the film, you can't have a dress or even a cloth or even a piece of jewellery on you."
Well we can already hear Mallika's brother 'hisss'ing!
