Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat was assaulted by masked attackers last week,just six weeks after reality TV star Kim Kardashian West was tied up and robbed in the French capital.
Mallika Sherawat and her French boyfriend, Cyrille Auxenfans, were confronted in the hallway of his apartment building by three masked men when they returned to the home Friday evening.
“They sprayed them with tear gas and pushed her to the ground and started hitting her boyfriend. One of them tried to grab her bag, but she pushed them away and started yelling and screaming. After a bit of a struggle they ran away.” Said a friend of Sherawat.
The men fled after the attack, and the motive is unknown. The French police are investigating the incident.
The actress has given a police statement, according to her friend, who explained that she lives in Los Angeles and Mumbai but was in Paris visiting for her international movie project.
The incident happened about 4.3 km (2.7 miles) from the luxury private mansion in the 8th arrondissement where Kardashian West was robbed of an estimated $10 million worth of jewelry on October 3.
