Kumkum Sehgal and nephew Sahil, sister of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, have filed a defamation case in Bombay City Civil Court against actress and model Lavina Lodh. In this, he has demanded forgiveness from Lavina and a compensation of 90 lakh rupees. In fact, recently, Laveena shared a video on social media, calling husband Sumit Sabharwal as the nephew of Mahesh Bhatt and alleged that he supplies drugs and girls in Bollywood. Lavina had also claimed that Mahesh Bhatt knows everything about this and they are trying to sneak into their house and expel them from there.
Sehgal demands unconditional apology
Kumkum and Sahil have appealed to the court to issue an order to pass an order of unconditional written apology and compensation of Rs 90 lakh to Lavina for the derogatory statement against her. Also, the actress should be ordered to remove the objectionable video.
Sehgal claims – Sumit’s distant relatives
Sehgal, in his suit filed through advocate Rizwan Merchant, said that Laveena married Sumit Sabharwal, his distant relative in 2010. The couple was living in their Versova flat. They were not vacating this flat, so filed a case against him.
This month, he was given a notice to vacate the flat, which is why Lavina posted the objectionable video on social media. According to him, this is a cheap way of trying to get publicity and to remove his personal enmity with the husband (who no longer lives with her).
Sumit has said- I am not nephew of Mahesh Bhatt
Recently, Sumit Sabharwal had also issued an official statement saying that he is not a relative of Mahesh Bhatt. Sumit’s lawyer regretted dragging Mahesh Bhatt and his brother Mukesh Bhatt’s name in the case. He had said, “We want to clarify that our client has been an employee of Vishesh Films Pvt. Ltd. He is not a relative of Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt.”
Mahesh Bhatt has threatened legal action
Laveena’s allegations were denied by Naik, Nayak & Co., the legal counselor of Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt’s production house Special Films. He said in his official statement – “In the context of the video released by Laveena Lodh. We, on behalf of our client Mahesh Bhatt, deny the allegations. Such allegations are not only false and abusive but have serious consequences in law.” Are. Our clients will take legal advice and take appropriate action. “
