Alia Bhatt, whose father, veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt received death threats over WhatsApp, says she had nothing to worry about and now everything is in control. The Uttar Pradesh Police on Thursday arrested one person, who issued death threats to Mahesh Bhatt, his wife Soni Razdan and daughter Alia. At a press conference for her upcoming film - Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Alia told, "Honestly, I would not like to talk about that much because now everything has been solved. Everything is in control. The only thing I can say is that I am really thankful to the Uttar Pradesh Police and Mumbai police, and of course my father as they were brave and they give me a chance to worry. I think nobody should get this (death threats). Not only celebrities, all human beings should not get these threats."
Mahesh Bhatt lodged a complaint at the Juhu police station in Mumbai about extortion-cum-death threat against himself, wife Soni and Alia from an unknown person on Wednesday night. Later, Mumbai police's Anti-Extortion Cell contacted the Uttar Pradesh Police Special Task Force (STF) which swung into action and zeroed in on the suspect, identified as Sandeep Sahu. Mahesh Bhatt has revealed that the caller had demanded Rs 50 lakh, failing which he would eliminate his wife and Alia.
