This is so devastating. Mallika Sherawat, a successful Bollywood actress, was brutally attacked on the street in Paris. What’s even more scary, though, is that the beat down happened just blocks away from where Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in October!
Mallika Sherawat, 40, was minding her own business at an apartment in Paris on Nov. 11 when her and her boyfriend, Cyrille Auxenfans, were attacked out of nowhere by three men in masks, according to TMZ. The Indian actress claims the men sprayed tear gas before beating the pair with punches. Luckily, they only suffered minor injuries, and were not robbed of anything in the process.
Shockingly, this devastating crime went down just blocks away from where Kim Kardashian, 36, was robbed with a gun to her head on Oct. 3. The reality star still hasn’t fully recovered from the terrifying ordeal, only surfacing a handful of times since. She is understandably shaken by the incident, especially since the five men who committed the robbery still haven’t been caught. In this instance, though, millions of dollars worth of jewelry were stolen from Kim’s room. It does not appear that the two are connected.
Mallika is a well-known actress in Bollywood, although she’s also appeared on an episode of Hawaii Five-0 in the States. Besides acting, the 40-year-old was also the first Bachelorette in India, for the series which aired in 2013. She is also an outspoken feminist.
A criminal investigation has been launched into Mallika’s case, and officials are still trying to determine the attackers’ motive. “A full investigation to find the assailants is underway,” police confirmed. We will continue to update you with any information.
