Possible scenarios under which Mallika agreed to wear this outfit at the Ceat Awards:
1. She was promised the kingdom of Brunei as compensation.
2. Aliens abducted her, and upon finding large deposits of silicon in her, inferred that she was not actually human and so let her back on the planet. The damage caused by the abduction to her sense of judgement, however, was already done.
3. She didn't want her body to wilt by the end of the dance, so decided to wrap it in aluminium foil.
4. Someone told her that sportsmen like trophies and so she decided to nab one by dressing herself as one.
