On a TV show she declared that the veteran actor dyed his hair before they shot for a love-making in the film.
An insider reveals this remark of Mallika has upset the actor. Om immediately confronted her on it and the actress had to apologize.
Om Puri said, "Yes, I did confront Mallika when I heard what she had said somewhere about me. I didn't see the show. But people told me about it. She said it was a mistake. But what kind of a mistake is this? You put up your co-star, who is far more experienced than you, for ridicule on national television. Then you say it was a mistake?"
