Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat was reportedly tear-gassed and beaten up by three masked intruders in her Paris apartment block.

According to reports, the 40-year-old Murder actress had entered her complex with her French partner Cyrille Auxenfans when the masked intruders attacked them. According to reports, the attackers ambushed them 'without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them'.

A La Parisien report said, "The attackers then ran away, leaving a shocked Ms Sherawat and her friend to call the emergency services. A criminal investigation has been launched, with detectives working on the theory that the assailants were attempting a robbery."

The attack comes barely a month after reality star Kim Kardashian faced a similar attack in Paris in October.
