- Mallika is being evicted from the apartment she shares with her boyfriend
- They reportedly owe their landlord 80,000 euros or Rs 64 lakh in rent
- Their lawyer says that the couple are in 'temporary financial difficultie
The landlord's lawyer told Francetvinfo that the Mallika Sherawat and Cyrille Auxenfans could easily pay the rent and that there are no ongoing negotiations over the dispute, reports BBC. "Ms Sherawat would have been the best-paid actress in 2016. We are talking about 46 million euros of income and a fortune of 140 million. We are far from the tenant in difficulty," the landlord's lawyer was quoted as saying by Francetvinfo. Mallika's lawyer says that the couple are willing to pay the rent once the matter is settled.
The court will rule on the dispute soon.
Like last year when Mallika Sherawat was allegedly robbed, her Twitter account gives no indication of reported events. Mallika's tweets, posted just hours before the BBC report, reflects an exchange with actor Anupam Kher on his film The Big Sick. In November 2016, Mallika's tweets offered no confirmation that she had been attacked and robbed in Paris.
Mallika Sherawat is a regular at the Cannes Film Festival - last year she promoted Time Raiders there.
