Paris: Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat was allegedly beaten and robbed by three masked intruders outside her Paris apartment block, police revealed on Thursday. 

The robbery, in which the 40-year-old actress and an unidentified male partner were attacked with tear gas and punched, came weeks after reality TV star Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint West in the French capital, according to Telegraph which quoted French daily Le Parisien.

The alleged assault took place when the pair arrived at her residential building in the chic 16th arrondissement of Paris at 9.40 pm. The criminals wore scarves across their faces and 'without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them'. They then fled, leaving a shocked Sherawat and her friend to call the emergency services. 

A criminal investigation has been launched, with detectives working on the assumption that this was an attempted robbery.
