Famous TV actress Saumya Tandon, best known for her role Anita Bhabhi in 'Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai', has been robbed by a taxi driver in Istanbul while she was on her vacation.
The taxi driver stole 800 euros (Rs 60000) from Saumya Tandon's purse; the incident has left the actress shaken.
According to a report by The Indian Express, Saumya Tandon was tricked by a taxi driver in Turkey.
The report quotes actress, "The taxi driver stole 800 euros from my purse, it was very disturbing but it has made me wiser and more informed and cautious. Police couldn’t help me because I didn’t have the receipt of the travel so no license plate number. The lesson for all tourists travelling is always take the taxi receipt for safety."
She added, "But there is a bright side to everything, now I am travelling in trams, I made an Istanbul card, it’s so much more fun, safe and I get to know more about the city through its local transport. In fact in the tram yesterday I met an Indian origin group who are big fans of Bhabiji even though they barely spoke Hindi, and clicked pictures with me on the way."
