Renowned Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat has been summoned by a French court to leave their apartment situated in a posh area of Paris for failing to comply with the rent.
In a December 14 case, the court has finally told the Murder-famed actress and her French husband Cyrille Auxenfans to pay 78,787 euros which amount to $94,000 in rent owed and other related expenses. The court also gave the green light for their furniture to be seized.
The couple began to stay on rent the apartment in the costly 16th district from January 1 last year for a monthly rent of 6,054 euros. But the owner has claimed that they never paid the rent, making only a single transaction of 2,715 euros.
At a hearing in a court of Paris back on November 14, the lawyer hired by the couple stated they were in financial difficulty. But the claim had been dismissed by the owners of the apartment who revealed that she earned tons of millions during the rental period. However, they cannot be evicted out until March-end, when a moratorium on wintertime evictions expires.
Again in December 2017, the actress openly denied having an apartment in Paris. She tweeted: "It is absolutely not true and if anyone has donated one to me, do send me the address."
