Dubai, 17th October 2013: She may have publically professed her desire for India’s most eligible bachelors; with Karan Johar and Narendra Modi being No. 1 on her list. But Mallika has no qualms admitting that ‘maybe sometimes things just don’t swing your way!’
Known for wearing her heart on her sleeve, Bollywood’s sexy siren is definitely not shying away from making headlines in Life OK’s The Bachelorette India – Mere Khayalon ki Mallika. “India has only 3 most desirable single people – Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi and Me!” quips Mallika.

All I’m looking for is honesty, integrity and genuine affection, and of course, a good sense of humor. These dashing men have declared a war of love to impress me. They might not all be affluent, but they should be surely successful in their own right. More importantly, they are willing to accept me for who I am. Ultimately, it’s a battle that will separate the men from the boys.”
Commenting on the series, Ajit Thakur, General Manager, Life OK said, “In this year, Life OK has stayed true to its promise of delivering quality finite series’, which primarily focus on innovation and disruption.
