After Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise, Mahesh Bhatt hit the headlines as his alleged WhatsApp conversation with Rhea Chakraborty on June 8 was revealed. The filmmaker has been facing massive criticism since, and has been at the end of extreme backlash on social media. Mahesh Bhatt has four kids- he has two daughters Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt with Soni Razdan, while Pooja Bhatt and son Rahul Bhatt with Kiran Bhatt. Rahul Bhatt had once opened up about his relationship with his father, and said that Mahesh Bhatt never treated him like his own child.
Rahul Bhatt, in an interview with Times Of India in 2012, said, “My father Mahesh Bhatt never treated me like his own child. It’s the raw uncut truth about my relationship with my father. Perhaps if Mr. Mahesh Bhatt had been a father to me I wouldn’t have got into the friendship with Headley”. He also talked about the childhood insecurities, and the lack of a father figure in his growing years. He said that he had no father to guide him in his growing years.
He further said, “I maintain my father has always been indifferent to me. He has always treated me like a bast*rd. I felt like Andy Garcia in The Godfather 3.”
He also mentioned in the interview that Mahesh Bhatt wanted to name him ‘Mohammed’, but his Anglo- Indian mother put her foot down and argued that Mahesh Bhatt should keep his notions of secularism for some other occasion. “And besides, if Mr Bhatt thinks of himself as a good Muslim, he should’ve treated all his children equally,” he added.
Rahul Bhatt is a fitness trainer. He was seen in the controversial reality show Bigg Boss season 4, which was hosted by Salman Khan. ALSO READ: When Kangana Ranaut Gave Credit To Mahesh Bhatt And Mukesh Bhatt For Making Her An Actress After Winning An Award For Gangster – Video
