We believe that our Bollywood superstars get all the comforts that a normal middle-class person doesn’t enjoy. But this notion is only true to an extent. Yes, they get all top-notch security safeguarding them 24×7, but thieves are more clever than you can think.
From Amitabh Bachchan to Katrina Kaif, Bollywood stars have often been a victim of thefts where people have broken their bubble of security, and some of them have even gone away just like a wind.
1. Amitabh Bachchan
The house of the God of cinema, ‘Jalsa’, isn’t safe, too. It was reported that a native of MP, Deepak Kewat, entered Big B’s home by climbing a Gulmohar tree adjoining his bungalow. He jumped on to the balcony of one of the bedrooms on the top floor, entered the room and took Rs 8000 from a chest drawer in the bedroom.
Immediately, he was caught by the guards and was kept in police custody for 14 days.
2. Ajay Devgn and Kajol
One of the Bollywood’s power couple, Kajol and Ajay Devgn, faced similar house burglary, too, where their domestic help stole 17 gold bangles worth Rs. 5 lakhs. This incident happened just a few days after Karva Chauth celebrations when they hired additional maids for some cleaning work.
The suspects were later arrested.
3. Saif Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan might have stolen Kareena Kapoor’s heart but he could certainly not protect his own valuables. His own servants robbed him off 11 split air conditioners from his production house, Illuminati Films.
Sorry to say but Saif would definitely be singing, “Kahan Chal Diye, Kahan Chal Diye, Pungi Baja Kar.”
4. Sushmita Sen
The former Miss World, Sushmita Sen, had her worst nightmare come true when all her belongings were robbed at the Athens Airport, Greece. She was left with absolutely nothing. The situation became so critical later that she had to call her lawyer from India to help her out.
5. Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra
Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra were robbed of an expensive audio system along with an iPod once.
6. Dino Morea
Actor Dino Morea has a lesson for everyone. Check if your doors are locked before you decide to take a nap. Dino’s house was burgled while he was asleep. More so, he tweeted about that too. He wrote,
“Excuse my language, but the thief had the b****s to come into my bedroom, while I was asleep,”.
7. Sonam Kapoor
Strangely, the fashionista Sonam Kapoor lost her diamond necklace worth Rs 5 lakh at her own residence. It went missing from her bedroom drawer and was never ever found.
8. Arpita Khan
Arpita Khan’s apartment in Bandra West was robbed of cash and valuables worth Rs 3.25 lakh. She lives just a few minutes away from the superstar’s own home. Not only this, a 10 gm gold coin and designer clothes were stolen, too.
9. Katrina Kaif
Katrina Kaif’s bag worth Rs 72 lakhs was stolen while she was returning to India from her shoot in Australia. The bag had all the costumes of her film of ‘Singh Is King’ and after a lot of searches, the missing bag could not be located.
The director of the film, Anees Bazmi, issued a statement, “We were in a terrible situation and were left with no other choice but to recreate the costumes all over again.”
10. Mallika Sherawat
Mallika Sherawat was tear-gassed and beaten up in her Paris apartment by masked intruders who reportedly intended to rob her flat.
They sprayed tear gas on her, and her friend, and then ran away allowing the victims to recover and call the emergency services.
