Mallika Sherawat denies dating Antonio Banderas
The ‘Murder’ actress Mallika Sherawat turned furious over dating report with Hollywood actor Antonio Banderas. She lost her cool after she has been held responsible for Antonia's separation from his wife of 18 years Melanie Griffith.
Mallika and Antonio's closeness sparked fire when a video showing Mallika dancing with the ‘Desperado’ star at a party in Cannes two years ago circulated all over.
"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, Mallika out of anger tweeted, "LEAVE ME ALONE!"
It is not yet clear whether Mallika is the reason behind Antonio and his wife split but Mallika claimed Antonio to be her friend, when asked about the Hollywood actor, she 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 was further quoted by eonline.com.
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 first made her Cannes appearance in 2005 with Jackie Chan for the film ‘The Myth’, and then for ‘Hisss" and later William Dear's ‘Politics of Love’.
