Did a Bollywood Actress Cause the Banderas/Griffith Split???

photo:naachgaana.com

Did a Bollywood actress, who is known for stirring up controversy in B-town, take her drama to Hollywood?

Mallika Sherawat is the target of a scandalous rumor that may have rocked the foundation of one of Hollywood’s longest running power couples. It seems the diva is being accused of having extramarital relations with actor Antonio Banderas and some are saying she’s the reason for his split with actress Melanie Griffith earlier this month. The Hollywood couple had been together for a good 18 years when rumors started flying after Mallika was seen dancing with Banderas in a recorded video taken a couple of years ago in Cannes. Was this merely an innocent twirl between friends or did this signal the beginning of an illicit relationship that has carried on for years?

Mallika tells E! news that she has nothing to do with the couple’s break up and that Antonio was simply an “acquaintance” to her. “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.”

Either way, you know what they say, there’s no such thing as bad publicity! ;)

Hollywood Meets Bollywood in Tampa for IIFA Awards!

Hollywood icons John Travolta and Kevin Spacey took part in all the fun this past weekend as Tampa welcomed the first ever IIFA Awards held in the United States to town. Festivities kicked off with Travolta and Spacey joining Bollywood megastars Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshone, and Anil Kapoor, among others, on stage for many song and dance routines that reflected Travolta’s musical film past along with Bollywood’s affinity for musicals both past, present, and future.

A lucky 20,000 people caught this year’s IIFA Awards show, which is slated for release on worldwide television in June, and IIFA said it expects 800 million people to ultimately watch the awards show as Bollywood continues to increase its global footprint.

Travolta was presented with an award for his contribution to international film and gushed afterwards about the proceedings. “The first musical number, it was, wow, that was amazing,” Travolta opined on Saturday. “I find Indian films very original in energy and life. Every time I’ve had an opportunity to sing or dance in a movie, it’s been glorious … I think we’re simpatico. I would love for the Bollywood influence to actually infiltrate and give Hollywood more confidence in musicals and dance. Musicals in Hollywood are sporadic.”

Travolta had an impromptu chance to relive his ‘Saturday Night Fever’ days with star Hrithik Roshone as the latter presented him with his career achievement award.

Kevin Spacey also wowed the crowd with his dance with the big winner of the night Deepika Padukone to the tune of the ‘Lungi Dance’ and even donned the song’s signature wrap around over his tux for the show-stealing performance at the star-studded event. The Oscar-winning star of classics such as ‘American Beauty’ and ‘The Usual Suspects’ seems to have enjoyed himself as he said ‘It is great to be here and see the performances at IIFA.’

Bollywood stole the selfie trend from Hollywood as Anupam Kher tweeted a selfie with Spacey, Priyanka Chopra, Arshad Warsi, Aftab Shivdasani, Ritesh Deshmukh and Rajiv Kapoor where everyone seems to be having a great time from IIFA!

Porn star turned actress Sunny Leone is getting demanding!

Reportedly the diva refused to remove her top for her upcoming horror film.  We hear the shot required the actress to bare her breasts, but she demanded she’d be allowed to keep a bikini top on.

Though she was allowed to shoot wearing a top, it was later removed using computer graphics. Her breasts were then digitally superimposed from one of her earlier films.” said a source.

Interestingly enough, Sunny hasn’t been seen in any porn movies since her transition into Bollywood, but the 32-year-old did mention in previous interviews how she will continue to be a part of the industry.

The Hollywood starlet takes it off for Bruno Mars latest single, Gorilla.

The Indian beauty plays a stripper in the video named Isabella who strips down to her undies.  She later makes out with the singer and sets a guitar on fire.  Could this be a tactic to break the “good girl” image attached to the actress?  If so, we think she did a pretty good job. 

The 28-year-old is certainly switching it up and showing everyone she can be sexy.

Veteran TV writer and stand-up comedian Sanjay Shah has just sold an autobiographical sitcom to NBC television. The show will center around the experiences of an immigrant family running a fast food restaurant in Sacramento and focus on the two different sons in this family.

Sanjay took a circuitous route to Hollywood himself and originally graduated from Berkley. He began doing stand-up and opened for Russel Peters, then co-wrote a widespread video service called Badmashi which did parodies like ‘The Singhsons’, and then moved on to writing for such acclaimed television shows as ‘King of the Hill’, ‘Cougar Town’, ‘South Park’, ‘Enlisted’, ‘and most recently ‘1600 Penn’.

No word on casting or a possible air date as of yet.
