According to The Telegraph, police are investigating what they're considering an attempted robbery.

The attack on Sherawat comes just weeks after Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room. The reality star was tied up by armed robbers, locked in a bathroom, and robbed of more than $10 million in early October.

The men were dressed as police officers and wore ski masks, and put a gun to her temple, according to Reuters. Paris police officials told the AP that five assailants stole a jewelry box containing valuables worth between $5.6 and $6.7 million, as well as a ring worth about $4.5 million.

Sherawat has starred in a variety of Indian films including "Khwahish" and "Murder," as well as the Indian spin-off version of "The Bachelor."

Representatives for Sherawat or the Poste de Police Nationale have not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment.
