Bollywood actor Mallika Sherawat was reportedly tear-gassed and beaten up in her apartment block in Paris on Friday. According to a report in Daily Mail, Sherawat and her friend Cyrille Auxenfans were attacked by intruders who ‘wore scarves across their faces and without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them.’ According to preliminary police reports, one of the masked men tried to rape the bollywood star but her husband intervened.
The attack came just weeks after reality TV star Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
The report said that the police have launched a criminal investigation, and detectives believe that this may have been a robbery attempt.
Sherawat has barely escaped similar incidents in the past in India. A report in Mid-Day said that Sherawat was at the risk of being attacked in Jaipur in 2013 when she was shooting for the biopic of Bhanwari Devi. The Myth actor is perusing her career in the West.
Earlier, Mallika was in the news when her father had confirmed that she got married to Paris-based businessman Cyrille Auxenfaus. It was reported that the duo had got married secretly but the actress had later taken to Twitter and denied the buzz. “STOP spreading rumours. It’s NOT true! The day I get married, you all will be invited. It’s NOT TRUE. Please don’t spread rumours. I am on my way to Cannes with my film Time Raiders,” she had tweeted.
Though earlier expressing her love to her beau, Mallika Sherawat took to Instagram to share a post which read, “Being in love is one of the best feelings in the world!
