Actress Mallika Sherawat was allegedly beaten and robbed at her apartment in France’s capital Paris. Mallika was reportedly at her flat with an unidentified male partner when three masked men attacked her with tear gas and robbed her. The alleged assault took place when the pair arrived at their residential building in the chic 16th arrondissement of Paris at 9.40 pm. As per a report, the robbers were wearing scarves across their faces and “without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them”. Sherawat and her friend called the emergency services after the attackers fled. A criminal investigation has been launched, with detectives working on the assumption that this was an attempted robbery.
Sherawat, however, is yet to react to the reports. In her latest tweet, she posted a throwback video of an earlier visit to Taj Mahal. Weeks ago, Hollywood actress Kim Kardashian West was also attacked in Paris in somewhat similar circumstances. West was robbed at an exclusive hotel. A gang of five robbers escaped with millions of pounds worth of jewels on October 3. Sherawat has barely escaped similar incidents in the past in India. A report said that the actress was at risk of being attacked in Jaipur in the year 2013 when she was shooting for the biopic of Bhanwari Devi. The Myth actress is persuing her career in the West.
