Bollywood star Mallika Sherawat — a fierce feminist who has stood strong for women’s rights in India — was beaten and tear gassed just blocks from the Paris apartment where Kim Kardashian was robbed.
The incident went down just weeks after the Kim K robbery. Mallika was either in her apartment or just outside when she says 3 masked men sprayed her and her boyfriend with tear gas … then repeatedly punched them.
Both were injured only slightly and nothing was taken from the apartment.
Sherawat has appeared in Hollywood movies and films, including “Hawaii Five-O.” She’s a big movie star in India.
