This time around, Mallika Sherawat is allegedly linked with the Hollywood actor Antonio Banderas
and she is held responsible for his split from his wife Melanie Griffith. But, Mallika is not a very happy person, she says don’t pry into my personal life.
Mallika Sherawat made her Bollywood entry with her raunchy acting in Khwahish in 2003. She became close to the ‘Desparado’ star two years back in Cannes. She was caught in a video dancing with the star.
"I remember when they danced and they had a lot of PDA (Public Disply of Affection), he had a lot of public affection with Mallika," Los Angeles stylist Ivan Bitton was quoted by radaronline.com as saying.
"He was saying 'God you're so beautiful,' like a horndog would do talking to a prey," he added.
After the report, the ‘Murder' actress tweeted on Thursday, "LEAVE ME ALONE!”
When asked if the split between the Hollywood actor and his wife Griffith was because of her closeness towards the Hollywood star Mallika said, "Antonio Banderas is a wonderful man, a great dancer and an acquaintance of mine.”
" I did not go on any vacation with him, and I'm sorry he's going through a divorce,” she added. She went on to say that Bitton was hired only for the international film festival.
"Ivan Bitton is not my best friend. I hired him as a stylist at Cannes and then fired him. I'm sure he released the video.
"I don't know what he's even talking about now. I haven't been in touch with Ivan since I fired him. Whatever he's saying about me is ridiculous," she said.
Mallika Sherawat went International with Jackie Chan-starrer 2005 film ‘The Myth’, further on she did Jennifer Lunch’s ‘Hisss’ and William Dear’s ‘Politics of Love’. Mallika’s first visit to Cannes was for promoting her film The Myth with Jackie Chan.
Since then she started giving her appearance every year in Cannes.
