The Orissa High Court on Wednesday rejected a petition filed by actress Varsha Priyadarshini seeking the court’s intervention to stop her actor-turned-politician husband Anubhav Mohanty from posting negative remarks about her on social media.

Varsha had filed the petition with Orissa High Court to stop the ‘fake and hate campaigns against her. As per Varsha’s allegations, when her family discord with Anubhav is sub-judice in a family court in Cuttack, the videos being shared by the actor-turned-politician on social media platforms are defamatory. She had also requested the court to expunge the previous posts from various social media platforms that are maligning her image.

Earlier, the Court had restrained both Anubhav and his wife Varsha from posting anything on social media against each other. However, in its final hearing on the matter, High Court rejected Varsha’s petition by saying that it is the fundamental right of Anubhav and the court can’t interfere with it.

However, on which basis the High Court rejected Varsha’s petition will be ascertained later when the order copy will be out.

Varsha had also filed two police complaints at Purighat police station and Cyber police station in Cuttack alleging that Anubhav tarnished her image in the public by posting videos on various social media platforms.
