Many people are wondering about the extent of the violent attack inflicted on the star. Police officers in Paris have reported to the media that three masked men approached Mallika Sherawat and her partner and attempted to steal her handbag.

In the physical struggle to obtain Sherawat’s purse, the three men punched Sherawat in the face and sprayed her with tear gas. However, the robbers were not successful in obtaining Sherawat’s purse.

The incident took place on November 11, when both Sherawat and her partner, Cyrille Auxenfans, were approached by the three men in the lobby of an apartment the couple were staying at during their time in Paris. The apartment was in a chic, established area of the famed French city. The couple immediately called emergency services once the attackers fled.

Weeks earlier, US reality TV star Kim Kardashian was robbed of jewelry worth more than $10 million and held at gunpoint not far from where Sherawat and her partner were attacked.

In Sherawat’s case, criminal investigations are underway under the assumption that the assailants were attempting a robbery. At this time, it has not been determined that this attack was planned.
