New Delhi:  'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein' actor Sumeet Sachdev has been served with a legal defamation notice by the former employer of his wife after she accused the company of harassment.

The notice to the actor and his wife Amrita Gujral has been sent by her former employer Prahlad Advani, the director of Advani Hotels & Resorts (India) Limited.

Through the notice, Advani, who owns and operates 5-star deluxe resort known as the ‘Caravela Beach Resort in Goa, has claimed a ''slanderous campaign initiated against them by the couple.''

In the notice, his counsel has claimed that Prahlad Advani has been the target of a ''slanderous campaign initiated by Amrita Gujral Sachdev, whose services were terminated by the company on August 11, 2018.''

The slanderous campaign launched by Amrita Gujral Sachdev post the termination of her service is purely based on ''vendetta and malice'', the notice read.

It further stated that Amrita Gujral Sachdev has misused the freedom of unregulated expression offered by social media networks and WhatsApp groups for her ''spiteful self-interest'' to create a hostile environment against the Company and its Directors. 

Prahlad Advani's counsel also accused Amrita Gujral Sachdev of influencing a certain section of media and providing them incorrect information which has defamed and maligned the reputation of an institution built over decades of integrity and an individual Director.

It may be recalled that the actor had recently filed a petition against his wife's employer for harassing her, days after Amrita she suffered a miscarriage.

Sumeet took to his Instagram account and narrated his ordeal. He wrote, "Introducing you all to EHAN ... beloved son of Amrita & Sumeet. You came into our lives And made it shine so bright We were family From two now we were three. We saw you wave at us Excitedly saying hi Little did we know You meant to say GOODBYE. Your brief time with us Was it for a reason? All we know is you were born...... straight into Heaven. Ehan, you shall be loved and missed always... Please sign this petition https://chn.ge/2oQcsp2 ...and spread the word and awareness for others to do so as well. A humble request. Thank you. (Link to the petition is shared on my bio - Thanks again)."

 

The petition reads, "Employers harassment over maternity leave because of a personal issue causes loss of innocent CHILD'S LIFE. Amrita Sachdev who was a very senior employee with the Caravela hotel in Goa since 2016, tragically lost her child as a result of mental anguish and torment she was subjected to because she was pregnant and opted to take leave for the advised bed rest."

Sumeet was also seen as Gautam Virani in famous TV show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Thi. He tied the knot with Amrita in 2007.
