Paris (CNN)Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat was assaulted by masked attackers last week, the office of the Paris prosecutor told CNN, just six weeks after reality TV star Kim Kardashian West was tied up and robbed in the French capital.
Sherawat, 40, and her French boyfriend, Cyrille Auxenfans, were accosted in the hallway of his apartment building by three masked men when they returned to the home Friday evening.
The incident happened about 4.3 km (2.7 miles) from the luxury private mansion in the 8th arrondissement where Kardashian West was robbed of an estimated $10 million worth of jewelry on October 3.
Police declined to comment on whether there is thought to be any link between the Kardashian West and Sherawat incidents, since the investigation is ongoing.
Sherawat, whose real name is Reema Lamba, is well-known in her native India for her appearances in films such as “Welcome,” a Hindi-language comedy, and “Aap Kaa Surroor,” a romantic thriller. She recently starred in “Time Raiders,” a Chinese action-adventure film.
