Maxim India’s 75th Issue Cover featuring Mallika Sherawat

That's the way, Maahi Ve.

Maxim India recently contacted me to photograph Bollywood superstar Mallika Sherawat for their 75th issue cover. Given the excitement generated from our recent WMB 3D shoot, I was all too happy to put together yet another concept for her. Mallika has an amazing beach house in Malibu, which she opened up to us for the shoot. Maxim India’s 75th issue hits stands in India this week and is available worldwide on the iPad and iPhone. Go behind-the-scenes in the video below!

Bollywood Stunner Mallika Sherawat Scorches WMB 3D

Unleaded? You're looking at Diesel, son.

I first noticed Mallika Sherawat in the early stages of her meteoric rise in Bollywood. It was clear she communicated with her audience on a different level than other actresses, and I always told myself that if I could get her in front of my camera, I would jump at the chance. I take the title “World’s Most Beautiful” very seriously, and after our launch I figured I had the perfect opportunity—and a responsibility—to showcase beauty on a global level, and perhaps introduce Mallika to a new hemisphere of fans in the process.

I met with Mallika a few weeks before our shoot, and she insisted on being heavily involved in the concept. We decided that an Americana-themed shoot would capture her in a way she had never been photographed, and it would also mirror her recent move to the US, where her Hollywood career has since begun to grow legs. I’m a big fan of Bollywood films, and I have the deepest appreciation for the stunning cinematography and glossy visuals used in their storytelling. However, to contrast Mallika’s previous work, I wanted to make sure this shoot looked very raw and dirty and American, hoping it would bring out a side of our star not-yet-seen.

As I expected, Mallika hit this one out of the park, bringing her own unique brand of jaw-dropping mystique to each frame. To see the full 2D & 3D photo feature, grab your copy of WMB 3D Issue 2, available for iPhone, iPad, Android and in print.
