Mumbai, Oct 7 (IANS) Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat rues that directors do not take her seriously because of her glamorous image; as a result she has no challenging roles in her kitty.

"I think because of my glamorous image, the serious directors do not take me seriously. I really hope they take me seriously and some challenging roles come to me," Mallika said in an interview.

"It doesn't have to be a full-fledged main role, even a supporting role (would do). But it should have some acting scope in it," she added.

Besides Bollywood films like "Murder" and "Pyaar Ke Side Effects", she has featured in Hollywood films like "The Myth" and "Hisss".
