Mallika Sherawat waves the Tricolour in USA
In the month of August every year, an India Day Parade is held in USA prior to the Independence Day celebrations in India on August 15.
This year, Mallika Sherawat, who has made US her second home, was the Grand Marshall of the India Day Parade held in New Jersey. The lady, otherwise known for her provocative dressing, was modestly clad in cream-coloured salwar-kameez and a tricolour sash.
The one-mile parade turned out to be quite a crowd puller. Hundreds of Indian Americans and even American locals joined in. With Mallika at the helm, the parade became the largest India Day Parade yet.

The parade was organized by Indian Business Association jointly with other Indian American organizations.
At one point, Mallika stepped on the podium and waved the tricolour joyously.
The parade was accompanied by three marching bands and hundreds of marchers.
Later, Mallika even tweeted her exuberance.
“Mother India!! Jai Hind!! :-)” she tweeted.
