‘Bad Luck Always Strikes Big Time’, is a saying that has certainly proved right for Sachin Shroff. Sachin has been in the limelight, ever since he returned from his memorable Mauritius trip, where he was thronged by fans. But now, it seems like, he is at the receiving end.
Recently, Sachin was driving down with his mother to a doctor, when few men on the road, told him that his car was sparking. Sachin ignored this, and drove away; just to get stopped little further, by another mob of men, who said the same thing. He again gave a deaf ear and moved ahead, to be stopped for the third time for the same reason. A worried Sachin got out of the car to check his car bonnet; but little did he know that he was trapped by a gang which stole his entire music system from the car.
Telly Buzz reporter Hiral Anju Bhatt caught up with Sachin, who says, “I was on my way to Bandra, and this guy came and told me that there was a spark in my car. Normally, a person would get worried, hearing about the spark in his car, but then I just thought that fine, I’ll check it later. A little bit further, two guys told me again that they could see sparks. And then at the signal, another guy said that there were sparks coming out of my car. Then I realized that no, may be something is definitely wrong. I got off the car, and went to check under the car, and saw nothing there. I turned around to ask the guy that where did he see the spark, but then I didn’t see him there, and when I went in the car, I saw the music system of the car missing.”
When asked if he did something about the incident, Sachin replied, “No, I was taking my mom to the hospital, and I was just not in the frame of mind to do anything about it. And come on, there are so many cases already registered about such robberies. I want the people to be aware about things like this, that happen in everyday life. I’ve learned to be cautious from now on, and would advise everyone to take care.”
Well, Beware Mumbai-ites, take care of your belongings whenever you are out. As for Sachin, we can only feel sad for this huge loss that he had to bear. But yes, thanks Sachin for advising all to take care..
