A few years ago, there were media reports that Rolls Royce denied selling their car to Bollywood actress, Mallika Sherawat. However, at a chat show, Mallika has cleared rumours about this and revealed that the luxury automobile manufacturer, Rolls Royce did not refuse to sell a car to her.
She said that the rumour is rubbish. Mallika said, “Can you imagine? So ridiculous! Like, why would a car company refuse to sell you a car?” Rolls Royce does not deny cars to anyone who can pay them. So, Mallika Sherawat was not denied a car by the manufacturer.
The Bollywood actress has been spotted in various different Rolls Royce cars on different occasions. It is still not clear whether the luxury cars belong to her or not. According to Mallika, the story was written by a journalist when she refused to give him some gifts. The story said that Mallika tried to convince Rolls Royce that she is a Hollywood actor. This information was revealed on The Love Laugh Live show, hosted by Mandira Bedi.
