A struggling actress allegedly attempted suicide outside the Bachchans' bungalow in suburban Juhu early on Friday morning, saying she was in love with Abhishek Bachchan.

Janhavi Kapoor, a city resident, cut her wrist outside 'Pratiksha' contending she was in love with the junior Bachchan, who will tie the knot with Aishwarya Rai on Friday evening, a senior police officer said.

She alleged that Abhishek, whom she met during the shoot of a film, had also promised to marry her, the officer said.

"She is a drug addict and had also taken some sleeping pills at the time of the incident and we find her to be mentally disturbed," he said.

The police are yet to register any case in connection with the incident, he said.

Kapoor alleged that she was threatened by Samajwadi Party leader and Bachchan family's friend Amar Singh when she arrived at 'Pratiksha' early on Friday morning.

"Amar Singh threatened me...I am very scared," Kapoor told reporters.
