The filmmaker also stated that their name is being dragged into the controversy with an ‘ulterior motive’. “Ms. Luveena Lodh has consciously and maliciously orchestrated a campaign along with her benefactors to nefariously defame and besmirch the good name and reputation of my brother and myself with the sole and ulterior motive to garner publicity in the hopes that the same would motivate a lucrative out of court settlement in her matrimonial dispute with Sumit. We have the highest faith in our judicial system and intend to see this suit to its logical end.”
In a video shared by Luviena Lodh on Instagram, she had stated that Mahesh Bhatt was the biggest don of the industry and that if anything was to happen to her or her family, the people responsible would be Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt.
