Nobleman denies affair with Preeya Kalidas

Hungarian aristocrat Count Miklós Cseszneky de Milvány has denied he is romantically involved with Preeya Kalidas. A photo showing him hugging with the actress has been published by tabloids and community portals suggesting an affair.

However, according to the Count, the hugging happened „accidentally” when the former EastEnders star signed a copy of her first single ' Shimmy ' for him. The 31-year-old nobleman is distantly related to the Royal Family, but he is basically pennyless, since the domains of the family were confiscated and noble privileges were abolished in his native country.

Preeya Kalidas declined to comment. In a 2009 interview the British-Asian actress revealed she was prepared to ask her parents to find her a husband, adding arranged marriages were a positive thing.
