The beauty queen-turned-actress Sushmita Sen who was recently on a vacation to the exotic locale of Santorini has been stuck with tragedy. The actress who was returning to Mumbai was robbed at the Athens airport.
Bollywood actress Sushmita Sen displays a creation by designer Sanjana Jon at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week in New Delhi.
Apparently, the robbery took place at 13:05 hrs Greek time at the airport where
Sush was booked on a flight to Dubai, from where she was to board a connecting flight to Mumbai. Since she arrived about four hours early, Sushmita was waiting outside an eatery, with her hand on her trolley. At some point, she turned to speak to a man sitting behind her when she was robbed.
Obviously in a state of shock, Sushmita immediately called her office in Mumbai who in turn connected her to Farah Khan Ali, who has friends in Greece.
It was later with the help of Farah's friends who arranged for a lawyer that Sushmita filed a police complaint and was given her passport to travel back to India.
In the incident, Sushmita lost her mobile phone, iPad and credit cards too that were in her handbag. She also lost her passport and a 10-year visa to the US and the UK that were kept in the trolley.
