It is being reported that Mallika Sherawat, the actress who made her name in Bollywood and now works in Hindi, English and Chinese language films and known for her bold attitude on screen, was supposedly attacked outside her Paris apartment last Friday. Police revealed that three people wearing scarves across their faces, allegedly had tear gassed and beat up the actress outside her apartment in Paris. The intruders said no words but attacked and did run away leaving Sherawat and her friend in a shock, as they contacted the emergency services.
It was on the 11th of November that this incident took place at night, when Mallika Sherawat arrived with a male friend of hers, at her residential building, in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, at 9.40 p.m.
As reported, investigators have said that they were puzzled, that though the intruders had tried to snatch Sherawat’s handbag, yet they fled empty-handed. “We cannot understand why the attackers fled without taking anything,” a source in the investigation told AFP. The report goes on to say: “The attackers then ran away, leaving a shocked Ms Sherawat and her friend to call the emergency services. A criminal investigation has been launched, with detectives working on the theory that the assailants were attempting a robbery.”
The respective tear gas attack comes a few weeks after Kim Kardashian West, the American reality TV star, was allegedly held at gunpoint, on October 3, at an exclusive hotel in Paris. It was reported that two armed masked men, who were dressed as police officers, had fled away with millions of pounds worth of jewels.
Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat was seen at the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival, this year promoting for her film Time Raiders and was even seen to attend the Cafe Society premiere.
