Amid numerous reports that Antonio Banderas' marriage to Melanie Griffith is on the rocks, has exclusively obtained video of the Spanish hunk caught dirty dancing with stunning actress, Mallika Sherawat, aboard a yacht at this year's international Cannes Film Festival, as his wife was at home in Los Angeles.

During a party aboard Paul Allen's yacht at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, actress Mallika Sherawat and a solo Banderas got very steamy on the dance floor.

Mallika's stylist, Ivan Bitton, who attended the party, tells exclusively: "Antonio was very attracted to Mallika and you can see that from the video. Antonio grabbed her from behind, and he was really into the dance. I could hear Antonio telling Mallika how beautiful she was. However, as Antonio and Mallika were dancing together, a haggard looking woman in her 40s, came up to them and violently pushed Mallika out of the way. It was like a move out of the jungle or something. I just grabbed Mallika's hand and we went downstairs, we didn't want to deal with any drama. The woman that pushed Mallika was definitely NOT Melanie Griffith.

"You could tell Antonio was hot for Mallika, and she was flattered, but she would NEVER get involved with a married man, it's totally not her thing."

As previously reported, after several media outlets reported that the Desperado star had cheated on his wife of 15 years, and the subsequent disappearance of her wedding ring last week, Banderas has gone into crisis control mode to save their relationship.

“She is playing hard to get,” a source told “She has always known how to keep him on his toes and it wasn’t a coincidence that the cameras caught her with her wedding ring off! Ultimately she will probably stay with him but not before making him squirm.”

Though Griffith’s wedding bling is now back on her finger, the Working Girl actress is keeping her distance, spending time vacationing with their children in Aspen and Hawaii, while Banderas is busy jet-setting around the world for work.

“The last thing Banderas wants is a nasty high-profile divorce,” the source revealed.  “Despite their problems he still loves her and will do anything to keep her from leaving him.”

Multiple requests for comment from Antonio Banderas' rep were not returned.
