A few weeks back, actress Luviena Lodh had shared a video making some serious allegations on filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and family and accused them of harassing her. In her video, Luviena had also claimed that her husband Sumit Sabharwal supplies drugs to actors like Amyra Dastur and Sapna Pabbi and several others.

Reacting on Luveina’s claims, actress Amyra Dastur’s lawyer had released a statement and called those claims to be ‘false, unfounded and malicious’. Amyra had even filed a case against Luviena for ruining her reputation. In the latest development in the case, the Bombay High Court has granted interim relief to Amyra and has asked Luviena to refrain from ‘publishing, circulating, republishing or communicating any defamatory, slanderous, libellous comments and offending videos’ against Amyra.


Welcoming the High Court’s decision, Amyra took to her Twitter handle and wrote, Thank you Hon’ble #BombayHighCourt for your just order. Extremely grateful to our amazing judicial system and to @BediSaveena for fighting for what is right and just. This Diwali let us cleanse our lives from negativity, lies and hatred. #SpreadLove #spreadkindness.”

The ‘Issaq’ actress also issued a new statement that reads, “It’s a victory for truth Justice has prevailed. While my silence has been questioned, I was simply waiting for this moment, as I had immense faith in the Indian judiciary and the verdict in my case against Ms. Luveina Lodh has reinstated my belief in the system. I have always tried to walk a path of dignity, grace and positivity as I have never believed in public mud-slinging and with the Hon’ble Bombay High Court granting adinterim reliefs in my favour interalia restraining Ms. Luveina Lodh and all persons claiming through her from publishing, circulating, republishing or communicating any defamatory, slanderous, libellous comments and the offending video against me. I have to say that I will respect the fact that the matter is subjudice and rest my statement here.”

She concluded her statement by saying, “This is my final response on the questions I have been asked for so many days and I don’t want to indulge in the noise anymore. I would request media publications too, to refrain themselves from asking me anything about this as I won’t’ make any statements farther. A big thank you to everyone who stood by me all throughout and a very Happy Diwali to all of you. May this Diwali burn all the negativity around us and make us all shine a little brighter.”

For the unversed, Luviena in her video message had said, “I have filed a divorce case against my husband (Sumit Sabharwal) as I got to know that he supplies drugs to actors like Amyra 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.”

Well, now that Bombay HC has restrained Luviena from making any further defamatory comments on Amyra, let’s wait and watch what she has to say about the court’s order.
