Nikita Dutta, who was most recently seen in Amazon Prime Video’s Dybbuk, was robbed in Mumbai. Two motorcycles snatched the actress’ phone as she walked through Bandra. One of the males who was following her tapped her on the head, while the other stole her phone. The actress documented her incident on social media, calling it a “traumatic” and “torrid experience” that left her speechless.
Nikita Dutta’s most recent film was the horror thriller Dybbuk, in which she starred alongside Emraan Hashmi. Sharing her ordeal of phone theft on Instagram, the Kabir Singh actress wrote, “Sharing a torrid experience I had yesterday which was very dramatic and has given me a rough 24 hours. I was walking on the 14th road in Bandra around 7:45 pm in the evening. Two men came on a bike from behind, tapped me on my head which suddenly disoriented me for a moment and the pillion rider snatched my phone from my hand. They were on the move when they did this. So before I could react they fled away (sic).”
She further wrote, “For almost 3-4 seconds I was in absolute shock as I didn’t register what just happened. By the time I gathered myself and ran behind the bike, they had gone too far. The walkers nearby were sweet enough to rush for help. A kind man on a two wheeler even tried to follow them after hearing me yell for help but was in vain in keeping track as they drove rashly and just got away in no time. With all the helplessness and rage I felt in that instance it almost gave me a panic attack (sic).”
Nikita was grateful to the people passing by who helped her. She then filed a complaint at Bandra Police Station. “Was lucky enough to have some very helpful people around who calmed me down gave me some water as tears rolled down uncontrollably. Later I did file a complaint at Bandra police station. Did all the needful things as per procedure. I hope this doesn’t happen to anyone else and no one has to experience losing their hard earned money like this without any fault of theirs (sic),” wrote Nikita concluding her post.
