Grooving with Antonio Banderas in billionaire Paul Allen’s yacht or hitting the clubs and coffee shops at Cannes with the actor may have been just a ‘friendly gesture’ on Mallika Sherawat’s part. However, a picture of them dancing, which surfaced online, has reportedly caused cracks in Banderas’ 15-yearlong marriage to Melanie Griffith. Seemingly oblivious to her dirty dancing making it to the headlines, Mallika is now planning a vacation with Banderas. Mirror found out that the actress, busy shooting for Kismat Luv Paisa Dilli at the moment, will be off to Paris on August 7 to meet the Hollywood actor.
After a report of Banderas and Griffith’s marriage troubles surfaced in the local media, Mallika, who is currently in Mumbai, tweeted in disbelief. ‘Really?!’ wrote the actress attaching a picture of the report with it. Needless to say, she remained unavailable when contacted.
A close friend of Mallika, however called us up soon after. “Let me be very clear about the facts. On date, Mallika and Antonio are indeed very close,” the friend stated. “In fact, after getting to know each other in Cannes, they have stayed in touch,” said the friend and added “Very much,” as a qualifier.
Confirming Mallika’s visit to Paris, the friend told us, “Antonio has invited her over. She is leaving on August 7. In fact, he is very keen to work in a film with her.” But that, obviously isn’t the focus right now.
“Right now, she is going to Paris simply because Antonio has invited her. And nobody knows how many days she plans to stay over,” added the friend. Well, she surely won’t wear out her welcome too soon.
