"This happens only few times in a career of an actor...when they are offered roles which are glamorous as well as performance-oriented. 'Dirty Politics' is a mixture of both," Mallika said at the film's music launch here on Tuesday.
She has high hopes from the movie, which is directed by K.C. Bokadia. "I'm really hoping that after this movie, my fans like it, critics like it, serious directors take a note of it and then offer me performance-oriented parts and not only glamour-oriented parts," the 'Maiyya maiyya' girl added.
'Dirty Politics' also features Naseeruddin Shah, Anupam Kher, Jackie Shroff, Ashutosh Rana and Rajpal Yadav.
The film will hit the screens February 13.
