Mahesh Bhatt reportedly received an extortion call from a gang leader last week, asking for a sum of Rs. 50 Lakhs. The caller allegedly threatened to kill his daughter Alia Bhatt and wife Soni Razdan if he was unable to fulfil his demand.
According to a reprot in IndiaToday, the police has registered an FIR under section 387, and also recorded the statement of the Bhatt family. Initially when Mr. Bhatt received the phone call, he thought it was a prank. But he later received a number of text messages asking him to not take the threats lightly. The sender had reportedly written:
If you fail to do so, I will fire several rounds of bullets in your daughter Alia and wife Soni.
That’s quite shocking! We hope appropriate action is taken against the culprit, and the entire Bhatt family remains safe and sound.
