Somewhere in October, actor Luviena Lodh shared an IGTV revealing that Mahesh Bhatt’s nephew, Sumit Sabharwal allegedly supplies ‘drugs and women’ to various actors and that allegedly Mahesh Bhatt knows all about it. In this video, she even named actors like Sapna Pabbi and Amyra Dastur whom she has apparently seen consuming drugs. After coming across the same, Amyra sought legal action by filing a defamation case against Luviena. Amyra Dastur’s lawyer, Advocate Saveena Bedi Sachar had even released an official statement on behalf of her client, on her Twitter handle. However, Amyra shared a new statement on her Twitter handle today where she was seen hailing Bombay High Court after it announced the verdict in her favour. The actor's statement says 'justice has prevailed.'
An excerpt of her statement 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 ad-interim 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 backed this statement by writing, "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"
Her note further mentioned that she requested media publications to refrain themselves from asking her anything about the case as she won't make any further statements.
