One of the ace filmmakers of Bollywood industry, Mahesh Bhatt, often makes headlines but mostly for wrong reasons. Now once again controversies have surrounded the filmmaker as he has been accused by one of his relatives and actress, Luviena Lodh, of harassment. Taking to her Instagram story, Luviena revealed that she is married to Bhatt’s nephew Sumit Sabharwal and has recently filed for a divorce over some drug issues.

In her short video clip, the actress made some shocking revelations and alleged that her husband Sumit used to supply drugs to actresses like Sapna Pabbi and Amyra Dastur and also that Mahesh Bhatt was well aware of the situation. Now defying all the allegations, Mahesh Bhatt’s lawyer has released an official statement calling her allegations ‘fake and defamatory’.

His Lawyer’s statement reads, “With reference to the video released by one Lavina Lodhi. We, on behalf of our client Mahesh Bhatt, refute the allegations. Such allegations are not only false and defamatory but have serious consequences in law. Our client will take such action in accordance with law as advised. SD/- Naik Naik & Co. Legal Counsel, Vishesh Films.” Meanwhile, Luviena in her video called Mahesh Bhatt the biggest don of Bollywood industry, who operates the entire system.

Luviena in her video alleged, “I am married to Mahesh Bhatt’s nephew Sumit Sabharwal but have filed a divorce case because I came to know that he supplies drugs to actresses like Sapna Pabbi and Amyra Dastur. And Mahesh Bhatt is well aware about all this.”

She went on to say, “Mahesh is the biggest don of the industry, he operates the entire system. If you don’t play by his rules, he will make life difficult for you. Mahesh Bhatt has ruined a lot of lives by putting them out of work. He makes one phone call and people lose their job. Ever since I filed a case against him, he has been trying to enter my house and remove me from this house. No on files my NC either and even after great difficulty I manage to file and NC, no action is initiated.”
