Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw, who plays domestic cricket for Mumbai, was recently attacked by a woman and her friend in the Santa Cruz area of the cricketer’s home turf, Mumbai. The Mumbai Police later arrested the actress.

The assailants have been identified as social media influencer Sapna Gill and her friend. Gill is an actress who has worked in Bhojpuri cinema with industry superstars like Ravi Kishan and Dinesh Lal Yadav.

Gill, who has a following of 219,000 on Instagram, hails from Chandigarh and resides in Mumbai. She uploads content ranging from entertainment and dance videos to fashion photos on social media platforms.

She has starred in movies such as ‘Kashi Amarnath’, ‘Nirhua Chalal London’ and, most recently, ‘Mera Watan’, released in 2021.

Gill and her friend asked for a selfie with Shaw. After initially entertaining their requests, Shaw didn’t oblige further and a security guard later asked the two to leave the premises, according to police.

The altercation happened at a five-star property and later when Shaw left the hotel premises in his car along with his friend, Gill and her friend along with a few others chased his car, intercepted it at a nearby traffic signal and broke the windshield. They also demanded Rs 50,000, threatening to file a fake police case.
