A luxury housing project — publicised in the name of tennis star Maria Sharapova and scheduled to be completed in 2016 by a Gurgaon-based developer — never took off, prompting one of the buyers to move court. The tennis star has been made a party to the complaint and a court has now ordered an FIR against her and the developers.
Gurgaon-based Bhawana Agarwal (44), through her lawyer Piyush Singh, filed a complaint in a Delhi court against Homestead Infrastructure Development, Homestead Infrastructure Maintenance, Homestead Arabic Homes, the company directors and Sharapova.
