Mallika Sherawat had quite a successful 2007 with a hat-trick of box office successes to her name. However, even though GURU, AAP KA SURROOR - THE MOVIEE and WELCOME were all money spinners, Mallika only had supporting roles or cameo appearances in each of the three films.

While in GURU, she gyrated to the tune of chartbuster track 'Maiyya Maiyya' in case of AAP KAA SURROOR - THE MOVIEE there were rumors about her charging a whopping Rs one crore in fees for a short appearance. In the film, she had an item track 'Mehbooba' in addition to a few scenes as a woman who had much more than just a crush on Himesh Reshammiya. Even though she was promoted as a vamp in the film, she hardly seemed to be the one as the film progressed.

Meanwhile, the latest release WELCOME is her biggest blockbuster of all times. Even as she made an appearance only in the second half of the film, her arrival only made the proceedings livelier. Her naughty antics with Nana Patekar and Anil Kapoor managed to get the house down with her 'Kiya Kiya' song and dance number with the two veterans turning out to be a chartbuster.

Says a source closely associated with the actor, 'The year 2007 has gone quite well for Mallika even though she didn't have a lead role to play in any of the three films. After PYAAR KE SIDE EFFECTS, her fans have obviously been asking for more. After a consistently good run, in the form of three super hit films, she is all set to enter 2008 with a lot more confidence.'

The year 2008 is indeed special for Madame M as she would be seen in at least three high profile projects - UGLY AND PAGLI, MAAN GAYE MUGHAL-E-AZAM and a Tamil film DASAVATHARAM.

Reveals the source, 'MAAN GAYE MUGHAL-E-AZAM is all set to remind the audience of the great chemistry that Mallika shared with Rahul Bose in PYAAR KE SIDE EFFECTS. The film is a wonderful package. Not only does it come from the house of Venus who are looking at making a comeback after the debacle of AAP KI KHATIR; it also has Sanjay Chhel as a director who wrote such superb one liners in PARTNER. Actors like Paresh Rawal and Kay Kay Menon in the cast only make this yet another more comedy to watch out for in 2008.'

Another comedy which Mallika's fans can expect from her this year is UGLY AND PAGLI. A Pritish Nandy Communications' production, the film, as per its producer Rangita Pritish Nandy, is 'Bollywood's quirkiest, kinkiest and funniest romance'. To be directed by debutant Sachin Khot, the film sees Mallika paired opposite Ranvir Shorey who had a supporting role to play in PYAAR KE SIDE EFFECTS. A romantic comedy, the film has music by Anu Malik.

Before the year comes to a close, Mallika would be also seen in her biggest and costliest Indian project ever - DASAVATHARAM (which stands for 'Ten Incarnations'). She is said to be playing a CIA agent in the film that has Kamal Hassan in the lead with as many as 10 characters to portray.

With three major films up her sleeves that would feature Mallika in different roles as a leading lady, 2008 could well be the year that acts as her calling card!
