Shocking: Mallika Sherawat Got Jailed In Cannes 2018. Actor Mallika Sherawat, who is the ambassador for international NGO ‘Free A Girl India’, which is fighting human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children, took it upon herself to raise awareness on the horrifying crime of forced child prostitution at the ongoing 71st Cannes Film Festival 2018. As part of Free A Girl’s Lock-Me-Up Campaign, the Mallika Sherawat locked herself in a 12×8 feet small cage at Cannes to bring global attention on the issue.
These innocent victims have to live and survive without any aid. There is a woman suffering abuse every minute with no hope of any change. So I thought of doing my bit and raising awareness about an issue which needs to become extinct at the earliest.

Talking about Cannes Mallika said, “It is my ninth year at Cannes and the festival is one of the most cogent platforms to raise the issue of child prostitution not just in India but across the world. Being locked in a cage, I wanted to drive home the imagery of how young girls who are being trafficked are trapped in a small 12×8 foot room. These innocent victims have to live and survive without any aid. There is a woman suffering abuse every minute with no hope of any change. So I thought of doing my bit and raising awareness about an issue which needs to become extinct at the earliest.”
Mallika Sherawat is not doing much in Bollywood these days, but she is making her mark nonetheless. The actress who is among the many Indian stars at the Cannes Film Festival is making sure to bring her fashion A-game every time she steps out.
Mallika walked the Cannes red carpet in a magnificent off-shoulder gown with just a hint of pink and black detailing. The actress also sported a pair of long diamond earrings that perfectly complemented her look. Mallika smiled and posed for the camera and made a fine addition amongst the list of the other Bollywood actress in Cannes.
