Past few days, Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt received an anonymous extortion call, who demanded to deposit Rs. 50 lakhs in a Lucknow based bank. The caller threatened to kill his wife Soni Razdan and daughter Alia Bhatt, if he fails to meet his demands.
He simply ignored it as a prank call, but he continued to receive death threats over SMS and WhatsApp texts. Mahesh Bhatt took the matter to police, filed a complaint regarding the same and the investigation is going on. Earlier today, Mr. Bhatt took to twitter and posted, “A bolt from the blue in the form of an extortion call & threat to my family was nipped in the bud by the MH & UP police in tandem. Gratitude!”
He and his family are now under tightened security.
