Mallika Sherawat makes her debut in digital space to share the story of the biggest nightmare in her life.allika Sherawat gives out a strong social message with her digital debut in ZEE5 original ‘The Story’ –
In a first-of-its-kind series, ZEE5 has launched ‘The Story’, a web series where celebrities share either their worst nightmare or their favourite fantasy. Mallika chose to share the dark side of her fame, ‘The Story’ where she deals with a deadly stalker.
ZEE5’s latest episode of ‘The Story’ takes her back in time when she was harassed by a stalker from Haryana. “I think it was back in 2010 when a stalker from Haryana chased me and threatened me for wearing short skirts and dressing the way I used to do as he thought it was bringing a shame to his state. I still wonder how was it his concern?”
She further said, “Shooting for The Story was a really spooky experience as it kept bringing back the memories of the unfortunate incident. While we were shooting, the director kept screaming ‘show more fear, pull her hair’… It reminded me of how psycho he was. I remember he had a gun in his hands when the police caught hold of him.”
The edge-of-the-seat thriller also has a strong message for women. “I wanted to empower women, give them a message for self-defense. So many women work outside home, travel late from work and why should depend on anyone else. Self-defense is extremely important in today’s times,” said Mallika Sherawat.
She further said, “CNN had this report that India is more unsafe for women that Afganistan and even Saudi Arabia. 8-year-olds are gang-raped in the country and women are abused by their own family members. In my opinion, nothing will change. The only change I see is that women have become more vocal about their issues and media has become bold enough to address it.”

Meanwhile, Mallika has also watched the first episode of ‘The Story’ where Swara Bhaskar talks about her story with her ex-flame. She said, “I have watched Swara Bhaskar’s episode and I enjoyed it so much. I had a good laugh while watching the episode.”
ZEE5 original is just the beginning as Mallika Sherawat is looking forward to exploring this space in future. She said, “Naseeruddin Shah once said that theaters are going to be in museums soon. Which is so true! Digital space gives you so much creative freedom. It’s definitely the future and I would love to explore more.”
We are sure Mallika Sherawat’s fans will be impatiently waiting for it.
