Bollywood star Mallika Sherawat has been beaten up and tear-gassed in her own apartment block in Paris, according to police.

The incident took place on Friday evening at around 9:30pm, when she arrived at the building with a male friend. Three masked intruders carried out the attack on the international model.

Wearing scarves across their faces, the attackers said nothing as they carried out the attack, according to Le Parisien newspaper.

Afterwards the intruders ran away, and Sherawat and her friend called the emergency services.

It is believed that attack was an attempt to carry out a robbery and a criminal investigation has been launched.

This attack comes just one month after US reality star Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in the city, prompting an international outcry.
