Actress Luviena Lodh recently came forward and shared a video message on her social media handles. The actress has levelled some serious allegations on her husband Sumit Sabharwal and veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. Luviena called Mahesh Bhatt a don and accused him and his family of harassing her.
Read on to know the filmmaker’s reaction on Luviena’s claims.
Sharing a video on her Instagram handle, Luviena said, “I have filed a divorce case against my husband (Sumit Sabharwal) as I got to know that he supplies drugs to actors like Amyrya Dastur and Sapna Pabbi. He has pictures of several actresses on his phone, which he shows to different directors. Mahesh Bhatt is well aware of everything. He is the ‘biggest don’ in the industry. He operates the entire system in the industry. If you don’t play by their rules, they wreak havoc in your life.”
She further added, “Mahesh Bhatt has ruined the careers of many actors, music composers. He is after me since the time I filed a case against them. They tried all ways to enter my house and even throw me out from my place. No one filed my NC when I went to the police station and even when I manage to file it, no action was taken.”

She ended her video by saying, “If anything happens to me or my family, then the only people who will be responsible are Mahesh Bhatt, Mukesh Bhatt, Sumit Sabharwal, Sahil Sehgal and Kumkum Sehgal.”
Now reacting to Luviena’s claims, Mahesh’s lawyer has released a statement that was published in Times of India. “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,” reads the filmmaker’s statement.
Also refuting the reports of Luviena’s husband Sumit being Mahesh’s nephew, Pooja Bhatt took to Twitter and wrote, “Please note that the lady in question is not a ‘relative’ since the man she was married to-Sumit Sabherwal is not MR Bhatt’s nephew as mentioned, nor related to him in any other way. Sumit is a senior production manager/head of production at @VisheshFilms(sic)”
