Cannes: 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. Seemingly oblivious to her dirty dancing making it to the headlines, Mallika is now planning an engagement vacation with Banderas. We 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 act for a secret engagement ceremony. After a report of Banderas and Griffith’s marriage troubles surfaced in the local media, Mallika, who is currently in Mumbai, tweeted in disbelief. ‘oh no I hope it was not me , ‘ 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 and are contemplating moving in together ,” 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 get engaged .” The ‘dirty dance’ snap taken during the Cannes Film Festival in May has reportedly caused a rift in Banderas’ 15-year long marriage related stories to Melanie Griffith.
