Perhaps it was too much to bear. Even Mallika Sherawat could not take it.
On the sets of The Bachelorette India – Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika, the Bollywood sleaze queen was accused of being dirty. As if this was not enough, there was a lot of bad blood among the contestants on who was calling her names.
A virtual fight began when a contestant called Mallika a 'whore'. By the time Mallika could get over it another accused her of sleeping with ace Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt.
Mallika burst into tears and left the shoot immediately. If sources from the sets are to be believed then Mallika was mad with sorrow the moment she heard what the contestants spoke about her.
She was continuously crying and then all of a sudden just got up from her seat and left the premises.
Out of more than 100 people on the set no one stopped her. Mallika did not come on the sets for 2 days and only after intervention by the top bosses of the production house did she agree to shoot.
Mallika Sherawat is no doubt wounded for being so terribly spoken of on national television, but even she is responsible for it to some extent.
In an earlier statement on the show she had said that she has no dearth of fans (read lovers) who can pay for her luxuries, throwing a hint at her relationship with a famous steel tycoon who pays for her swanky penthouse in Los Angles and all her other expenses which of course she cannot afford with the kind of work she gets.
