The complaint was filed by one of the victims, Ch. Tirupataiah who alleged that Genelia, who is the brand ambassador and one of the directors of M/s Anjaniputra Infrastructure Private Limited had connived with other parties to cheat him. He accused the actress of making false promises through ads and brochures and was directly involved in cheating him off his hard earned money as well as that of others.
Mr. Tirupataiah said that he has paid Rs. 54 lakhs to construct a duplex house at Maheswaram mandal on the outskirts of the city to the five directors of a real-estate firm as well as its brand ambassador- Genelia.
Mr. Tirupataiah paid the money for the construction of his duplex house in 2008 but till date it has not been done. "Being the brand ambassador of the firm, Genelia also made false promises through advertisements and brochures and cooperated with other accused in cheating," the plot buyers Tirupathaiah's counsel Balaji Vadera claimed.

The scam is reportedly of a whopping Rs.250 crores. There has been no reaction from Genelia’s side.
