Mahesh Bhatt and controversies go hand in hand and this time he was accused of supplying drugs, girls, and harassment by his own ex-family member and actress Luviena Lodh, read on.
Mahesh Bhatt is always found in some of the other controversies. The year 2020 has been exceptionally bad for the filmmaker as he names popped up several times in the Sushant Singh Rajput case, his alleged relations with Rhea Chakraborty, his hand in Jiah Kha's death, as claimed by her mother, and much more.
Well, the ace filmmaker was recently accused by Luviena Lodh, who happens to be the ex-wife of his nephew of harassment, supplying drugs and girls.
Actress Lodh posted a video on Instagram, claiming that the filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt has been threatening her. In a two-minute-long clip, the actress spoke about many things that may raise anyone's eyebrows. She revealed that she is married to Mahesh Bhatt's nephew Sumit Sabarwal but has now filed a divorce because her husband supplies drugs.
She had said in the video that she is recording the video for her and her family's safety. "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 of all this," shared the actress.
"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," she added.
"If anything happens with my family or me, the only people responsible will be Mahesh Bhatt, Mukesh Bhatt, Sumit Sabharwal, Sahil Sehgal, and Kumkum Sehgal. People should know what all these people can do behind closed doors because Mahesh Bhatt is extremely powerful and influential," she concluded.
According to the report in the Times of India Mahesh's lawyer had released a statement,"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," the statement read.
