Superstar Rajinikanth on Mallika's mind!

New Delhi, Oct 15 (IANS) If Mallika Sherawat was ever stranded on an isolated island, guess whose company she would want? Superstar Rajinikanth!

She confessed this in a web exclusive video to promote her ongoing reality show "The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika", which airs on Life OK.

"I would like to get stranded on an island with Rajinikanth. First of all, I will never get bored of Rajini, he will entertain me non-stop, and secondly, if I want to go anywhere, Rajini will row around the island to take me wherever I want to go," she said.

The "Murder" actress is in search of her soulmate through the reality show, which is based on the international format of "The Bachelor".

When Mallika was asked to choose her favourite actor from Amitabh Bachchan and Naseeruddin Shah, she didn't take any sides.

"I love Amitabh Bachchan, I respect him, but I really love Naseeruddin Shah. I think he is more versatile and secondly, I am working with him in 'Dirty Politics'," said the "Pyaar Ke Side Effects" actress.

Mallika shares tidbits via the promotional web videos, which are posted every alternate day on videosharing website YouTube so that the viewers can get to know her well.

"The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika", which went on air Oct 7, currently features 18 participants, who are wooing the actress.
