First she went to endorse a milkshake under her name and now she is being called a 'pure soul'. After being away for months in the US - where she's been moving in elite circles and having milkshakes named after her - the sexy actress Mallika Sherawat went to Karnataka to be part of a special religious ceremony at Shri Ramachandrapur mutt in Gokarna.
She took blessings from none other than the mutt's present pontiff, Sri Sri Ragaveshwara Bharathi Swami, who, amusingly, called Mallika "a pure soul". Sri Sri Raghaveshwara Bharathi Swamiji, the 36th and present pontiff of Shree Ramachandrapura Math, made a Special invitation to Mallika Sherawat to visit his new ashram in Karnataka and organized a number of special pujas in her honor. Mallika Sherawat received the invite while staying in Los Angeles for the post-production of 'Hisss' and made the trip back to India especially for the occasion, which included extensive pujas with 600 lotus flowers.
The actress, besides offering her prayers, broke ground for the building of a special Hanuman temple near a cave, where Lord Hanuman is believed to have been born. The mutt plans to build a massive, 15-storey high temple devoted to Hanuman.
Reports say Mallika took part in special, elaborate pujas for which priests were summoned from as far as Kerala and Mangalore.
Sherawat said, "After having spent most of my time recently in the US, it was a great honor for me to make a special trip back to India to meet the Shankaracharya. In a very special way it reconnected me to my Hindu roots. The experience was truly one of the best of my life."
The actress has been working on the post-production work of director Jennifer Lynch's film 'Hisss' in which she plays a snake-woman.
