Actress Mallika Sherawat halted the shoot of her show The Bachelorette India – Mere Khaylaon Ki Mallika for three complete days after one of the contestants reportedly used a cuss word against her.

In what was supposed to be the gathering of affable suitors on the sets of the dating reality show, the contestants entered into a verbal spat over difference of opinion on the actress.

One of the contestants cast aspersions on Mallika reducing her to tears, even as celebrity guest Mahesh Bhatt was watching on, sources said.

Mallika left the shoot immediately, sources said, adding that she was very upset and refused to shoot for the show. The cast and crew did their best to convince her, however, the actress did not relent and stalled the shoot for three days.

She agreed to shoot only after intervention by top bosses of the production house, sources said.

The Bachelorette India -Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika is a spin-off from the American competitive reality dating game show. The series revolves around a bachelorette and a pool of romantic interests, trying to impress her.
