Death threat to Mahesh Bhatt and Alia Bhatt, 1 person arrested

Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt has allegedly received a death threat from an unidentified caller who has demanded a sum of Rs 50 lakh to be deposited in a Lucknow-based bank branch.

The accused allegedly threatened to pump bullets into Bhatt’s family members.

The suspect Sandeep Sahu has been arrested from Uttar Pradesh by the state’s special’s task force and Mumbai crime branch.




According to reports, the caller has claimed that failure on Mahesh's part to meet their demand would result in the death of his actress daughter Alia Bhatt and wife Soni Razdan.

An ANI tweet confirmed that Bhatt filed a complaint in the Juhu Police station following the death threat.



According to reports, Bhatt received a threat call on February 26, which was initially believed to be a prank call. A series of text messages and WhatsApp messages followed the call and a person claiming to be a gang leader threatened that if he failed to pay up, the person would fire rounds of bullets at daughter Alia and wife Soni.

This threat comes two years after a group of 13 people were arrested on November 2014 for plotting to kill Mahesh Bhatt.
