Paris: A French court has ordered that actress Mallika Sherawat be evicted from an apartment in a posh part of Paris for failing to keep up with the rent.
In a December 14 ruling, the court told Sherawat and her French husband Cyrille Auxenfans to pay 78,787 euros (Rs 60 lakh) in rent owed and expenses, giving the green light for their furniture to be seized.
The couple began renting the apartment in the pricey 16th district on January 1, 2017, for a monthly sum of 6,054
euros (Rs 4.6 lakh)
But according to the owner they never paid the rent, making only a single payment of 2,715 euros (Rs 2 lakh).
In mid-December the actress had denied having a Paris apartment.
“It’s absolutely not true, if someone has donated one to me, please send me the address,” she tweeted in response to media reports about the case.
