Mallika Sherawat, who was reportedly tear gassed and beaten up by three masked men in her Paris apartment block, says she is a strong woman.
The 40-year old actress and model spoke to a leading daily about this incident and also posted a strong message on her Instagram account which read, “It takes more than 3 masked men to take me down, I am a strong woman.”
According to a report in a newspaper, Sherawat was ‘attacked by criminals who wore scarves across their faces and without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them.’ However, according to the sources of French news agency, AFP, the robbers fled without taking anything, further mystifying the investigators. “We cannot understand why the attackers fled without taking anything,” a source in the investigation told AFP. Nobody was immediately available to comment at the Paris prosecutor’s office and a police spokesman also declined to comment.
Mallika who has been active on social media didn’t post anything pertaining to the incident. A day after the assault, she shared with her fans a video from Geneva, where she was travelling on November 12.

This is not the first time that a celebrity has been attacked in the French capital.
The dreadful attack comes just a month after reality TV star Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris. The television personality was attacked and robbed at gunpoint of jewellery worth millions of pounds when she was in her apartment at the Hotel Pourtales on October 3.
