The Bollywood drama actress, Luviena Lodh, recently took to her Instagram account and released a video alleging her husband, Sumit Sabherwal, and her supposed uncle-in-law, Mahesh Bhatt, in drug distribution and harassment amongst other accusations. She also stated filing for a divorce from her husband. Recently, Sumit’s lawyer released a statement accusing Luviena of falsely calling him Mahesh Bhatt’s nephew.
“We stand concerned for our client Mr Sumit Sabherwal. The claims and contents of the video being circulated by our client’s estranged wife Mrs Luveena Lodh are denied in toto. Our client expresses his deepest regret that the good name of Mr Mahesh Bhatt and Mr Mukesh Bhatt is being sullied solely due to his pending (since 2016) matrimonial dispute with his wife,” the statement read.
The statement further clarified Sumit’s relations with Mahesh as an employee at Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt’s production house in a paragraph which read, “It is made amply clear that our client is merely an employee of M/s Vishesh Films Pvt Ltd and NOT related to either of the Bhatt Brothers, as falsely and maliciously been sought to be made out by the video in the question. Every attempt being made in order to formulate a relation between our client and the Bhatt brothers must be construed as a well-crafted conspiracy to precipitate and motivate a lucrative ‘settlement’ for her disputes with our client; as is amply made clear in her interviews as well. Out client has the highest regard for the judiciary of our country and reserves his actionable claims against Mrs Luveena Lodh for charges as and when he may institute against her.”
Here’s the lawyer’s statement:
Mahesh Bhatt’s lawyer also accused all of the claims in her video. Accusations of Luviena Lodh’s claims were supported by Amyra Dastur’s lawyer who called the allegations false and malicious.
