In what will be the first special recognition of a Bollywood film celebrity by the City of Los Angeles, Indian star Mallika Sherawat will be given a special honor by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, former Mayor Richard Riordan, Councilmember Jose Huizar and the Los Angeles City Council on the eve of Indian Independence day in a council presentation recognizing Miss Sherawat as an honorary citizen of the City of Los Angeles and present a resolution for her extraordinary career and charitable efforts.

Many special guests are expected to attend including a number of Miss Sherawat's Hollywood friends such as studio film director Jay Chandrashakur, world famous composer Yanni, award-winning record producer Ric Wake, CAA superagent Emanuel Nunez, studio film director Jesse Dylan (son of musician Bob Dylan), Donovan Leitch, Digital Domain/ILM legend Scott Ross, Hip-Hop record producer Craig Nobles, WME agent Alexis Garcia, HISSS director Jennifer Lynch and producers Govind Menon and William Keenan of Nuclear Mango, among others.

CHECK OUT: Mallika Sherawat goes ROCK'N ROLL...

Mallika, who has been residing in Los Angeles during the post-production of her film HISSS, has been called a new Hollywood ''It Girl'' by members of the US entertainment industry there after becoming the recipient of the Diversity Award in Hollywood, the Arts Award given by the mayor of Jersey City, the first star from Asia to be invited to the Twitter headquarters, the first Bollywood star to have a Hollywood milkshake named in her honor, and a favorite on the Los Angeles social scene, charitable circuit and even rock-star parties. This fall in Los Angeles, Mallika will star in her first all-American project, playing a character inspired in-part by Kamala Harris (Attorney General of San Francisco).

Excerpts of the letter from the City of Los Angeles:

''Ms. Sherawat,...I invite you along with family and friends to join the Los Angeles City Council and Mayor in a council presentation recognizing your extraordinary contributions to our great City on August 14, 2009 at 10 am in Council Chambers. In addition to recognizing you in council, we would also like to present to you a resolution honoring your career and contributions.''
