We may not have seen a Mallika Sherawat movie in a while now, but she has given us some really good films and some really bad ones in her 13-year film career.

This Friday, her long-delayed film Dirty Politics will finally release.

Before we catch it in theatres, here's a look at her biggest hits and flops.


Box office collections: Rs 76 crore

Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif were the face of Welcome but Mallika Sherawat made her presence felt in this Anees Bazmee comedy.

She was the centre of Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar's worlds, as they tried their best to win her over.

Welcome is Mallika's biggest success to date.

Double Dhamaal
Box office collections: Rs 45 crore

Mallika played the femme fatale in this multi-starrer, featuring Sanjay Dutt, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Aashish Choudhary, Javed Jafferi and Kangna Ranaut.

Mallika played a comic role with panache. Her chartbusting number Jalebi Bai is still very popular.


Aap Kaa Surroor: The Moviee - The Real Luv Story
Box office collections: Rs 19 crore

Mallika had a supporting role in this film that launched Himesh Reshammiya as an actor.

The film was a success and Mallika’s sizzling take on Helen's Mehbooba Mehbooba was a hit.

Murder was Mallika's first success. 

The actress became a rage, as she romanced Emraan Hashmi in the film.

The film's music was a huge success too, especially the song Bheege Hoth Tere.


Pyaar Ke Side Effects
Box office collections: Rs 8 crore

Mallika's Pyaar Ke Side Effects was a surprise hit. 

Audiences saw a different side of Mallika, thanks to her superb comic timing. The film paired her up with an unlikely co-star in Rahul Bose.

Mallika's flops

A very ambitious film, Mallika hoped to go mainstream Hollywood with this film.

The plan backfired, as the film was a terribly botched affair.

Irrfan Khan's presence in the film did not help.

Kismet Love Paisa Dilli
Box office collections: Rs 5 crore

Mallika and Vivek Oberoi's pairing for this sequel of Ek Chalees Ki Last Local evoked some curiosity.

A comedy with some thrills, the promos looked quite interesting. But it turned out to be a resounding flop.


Kis Kis Ki Kismat
Box office collections: Rs 4 crore

You probably haven't even heard of this film.

Mallika starred opposite none other than Dharmendra in this one, and yet, the film did not even see a proper release. Needless to say, it sank without a trace.

Bachke Rehna Re Baba
Box office collections: Rs 4 crore

And then, there was the time when Mallika starred opposite the gorgeous diva Rekha!

A mad comedy, Bachke Rehne Re Baba featured the two women as con girls.

It had some funny moments but mostly remained unexciting.

This was Mallika’s third film with her Khwahish director Govind Menon, but it brought her no luck at the box office.

Maan Gaye Mughall-E-Azam
Box office collections: Rs 2 crore

Mallika paired up with her Pyaar Ke Side Effects co-star Rahul Bose for Mughal-e-Azam, a comedy. But the film offered no laughs at all.

A very boring film, it starred talents like Paresh Rawal and Kay Kay Menon. It was a disaster.
