On Monday night, Amrita Arora was in for a rude shock when she went out for dinner with older sister, Malaika Arora Khan.
When they returned to the car after their meal, they discovered that Amu's Hyundai Tucson had been broken into.
Says a tearful Amrita, "I don't know what they were planning to rob. Fortunately, I hadn't left cash or any valuables like my cell phone or jewellery behind, which I usually do."
Recalling the incident, Amu says, "After a photo-shoot for a magazine, Malli (Mallika) and I were having dinner at Seijo's in Bandra when we heard a commotion outside.
Our driver, Ram Pandey, had parked it in the gully and gone for dinner. When he came back, he saw that the back of our car had been smashed and broken into.
The glass windows were totally smashed. My suitcase of clothes, make-up box and icebox had been opened and stuff was strewn around but nothing was stolen. I think they must have been frightened off when people realised what they were upto."
Has she filed a police complaint? "No. The car's been insured but my dad said our car dealers will repair our car at their Reay Road workshop. Right now, it's undergoing repairs there," rues Amrita.
