Controversy queen Mallika Sherawat has been invited to the prestigious Oxford University in the UK for a debate on Gender oppression.

The Bollywood diva, who openly expressed her opinion on the treatment of women in India, was accused of depicting India in a negative way. Mallika’s heated argument with a journalist went viral last year and left the actress open to the scrutiny of many. This obviously isn’t going to stop her from speaking her mind and we’re not the only ones who feel she would be a good pick for the debate. A team member, who is part of managing the event, had this to say: “We feel that as a figure who recently was very outspoken about the image of women and women’s rights in a country like India, she would lend an interesting angle to the debate.”

Mallika has confirmed that she’s accepted the invitation and commented,“Yes, I have accepted the invitation. The date is set on Feb 27th. A lot of preparation is required.” Elated over such an opportunity, she further stated, “Its a great honor. I come from a small town so it means a lot to be invited to speak at such a historic venue. I can use the platform to highlight issues like drop in the conviction rate in rape cases across the country.”
