Extortion Call to Kill Mahesh's Actress-Daughter

Extortion Call to Kill Mahesh's Actress-Daughter

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt today received an extortion call and the person also threatened to harm his daughter Alia Bhatt, but the actress says she is not anxious as the matter is already solved. The caller threatened Mahesh Bhatt that he will kill his daughter by pumping bullets if he fails to pay the mentioned amount.

The Bollywood's ace director Mahesh Bhatt has received extortion calls from a stranger against his daughter Alia Bhatt.

The movie producer initially dismissed the call as a prank, but after getting WhatsApp message from the person who claimed to be a gang leader he approached police.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened with the Bhatt family.

68-year-old Bhatt lodged a formal complaint with Mumbai Police Thursday morning.




One person has been detained in Uttar Pradesh in connection with the extortion and threatening call made to renowned filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. The case was transfered to Mumbai Police Anti Extortion Cell (ANC) and the matter will further investigated with police department.

The Juhu police is also said to have provided police security for the Bhatt family.

Pooja Bhatt was recently in Delhi to promote Richa Chadda's Carabet and took pride in talking about her 67th alcohol-free day to a leading daily.

Sahu, however, made the mistake of using his own number to make the extortion call as well as sending his own account number to Mr Bhatt, which helped the police identify him.
