The original sex symbol of Bollywood in the early 2000s, actress Mallika Sherawat, is back in the race..err..Somewhat. The 40-year-old posted a topless picture on Twitter, but it seems to have generated a little interest on the social media. While there is nothing wrong with Mallika’s picture, the netizens do not find it bold enough. The hotness quotient meter has become advance especially after the fans have seen the raw sexual appeal of actress Esha Gupta in her Internet breaking nude photoshoot pictures. Mallika Sherawat is seen covering her assets with her hands, something that was not seen Esha Gupta’s sultry pictures with the hottie going all out to flaunt her cleavage, butt and breasts.

Mallika Sherawat rose to the fame with her bold act in films such as Khwahish (2003) and Murder (2004). She was touted as one of the sexiest stars of the time who showed no inhibitions in shedding clothes or doing liplock and bold scenes on the silver screen. Her chemistry with Emraan Hashmi in Anurag Basu directed Murder earned the film a cult status. Mallika Sherawat did what the other mainstream actresses in Bollywood dared not to, making the Haryana girl so insanely popular with the masses.

But the new age sex bomb, Esha Gupta who also got her big break with the Mahesh Bhatt film is definitely leaving Mallika behind by miles. While we have seen Mallika go bold with kissing and flaunting her cleavage but none of it is near Esha’s smouldering hot nude photoshoot she did recently for the fashion photographer, Arjun Mark. Take, for example, Mallika’s recent topless picture that barely makes an impression (good or bad). On the other hand, the Baadshaho actress left no stones unturned in spicing up the mood with every new picture she posted on Instagram from her controversial photoshoot.

We saw Esha give seductive poses in minimal clothing, in the separate black and white lingerie. The Delhi girl then moved on to ditch her bra to show off her cleavage and her accentuated breasts. Esha teased the fans by giving risqué poses – she covered her nipples with the halves of pomegranate and in the last series of pics – she went buck-naked to show off her bare ass. Now, this level of boldness has not been shown in the recent times, something even the original sex bomb Mallika Sherawat cannot think of matching.
