Mukesh Bhatt issued a statement saying, ‘As we mentioned in our defamation suit filed in the court on Monday, Sumit Sabharwal is just an employee working in our film production company Special Films for the last twenty years. Lavina’s claim in the media that she is our relative is wrong. My brother and my reputation, including my beneficiaries, are being hurt intentionally and maliciously with the intention that this will help in publicity and settle the case outside the court at an attractive price. We have full faith in our judiciary and we want to see a logical end to the case. ‘
Earlier, the advocate for Special Films had said, “I deny the allegations on behalf of my client regarding the video released by Laveena Lodh. These allegations are not only false and tarnish the image, but have legal consequences. My clients will take action according to the law. ‘
Let me tell you that last week Laveena Lodh shared a video on her Instagram account. In it, he said, ‘I was married to Sumit Sabharwal, nephew of Mahesh Bhatt, I have filed a divorce case against him because I came to know that he supplies drugs to actresses like Sapna Pabbi and Amaira Dastur. Mahesh Bhatt is aware of all these things. The biggest don in the industry is Mahesh Bhatt and he operates the entire system. If you do not walk according to them, then they destroy your life. Mahesh Bhatt has ruined his life by removing so many people from work. He makes a phone call and the people leave their jobs. Ever since I have filed a case against him, he is trying to enter my house and try to expel me from the house.

At the end of the video, Lavina Lodh said, ‘When I go to the police station NC to write, no one takes my NC and even if I write NC, there is no action on it. If an accident happens to me or my family tomorrow, then Mahesh Bhatt, Mukesh Bhatt, Sumit Sabharwal, Sahil Sehgal and Kumkum Sehgal will be responsible for it. People should know what they can do behind closed doors because Mahesh Bhatt is very powerful and influential. ‘
