Mahesh Bhatt, who is an Indian film director, producer and screenwriter is well-known for his notable works exclusively in Hindi cinema. Besides being a bigwig in the Bollywood industry, Mahesh Bhatt has been hitting the headlines for all the controversial reasons. The most controversial one was when he locked his lips with his own daughter, Pooja Bhatt a long time ago.
This very particular incident triggered anger to netizens on all social media platforms. Mahesh Bhatt has often hogged the limelight for his string of controversies, heartbreaks and failures. A couple of years ago, he came under fire for his controversial pictures with Jalebi actress Rhea Chakraborty.
Mahesh Bhatt who has been in the headlines since Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise for his insensitive remarks afterward has raked up another controversy. After his alleged affair with Sushant’s ex-girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty, Mahesh Bhatt’s old video clip with Jiah Khan is now doing the rounds of social media platforms. The short video is of an underage Jiah Khan sitting rather comfortably with Mahesh Bhatt.
The netizens did not like the video at all and started launching a scathing attack on Bhatt for his rather creepy behaviour.
One tweeter by the name of Dextro commented saying, “God knows how many young women have been a victim of this monster, he doesn’t even have an iota of shame. All these vulnerable women either give in to his demands or die unnatural deaths or if extremely lucky, only lose their careers & go quite!”
Much like Sushant Singh Rajput, who by Mahesh Bhatt’s own admission had met Sushant before his suicide, Bhatt claimed in 2018 that he met Jiah Khan too, before her suicide.
As per a report in entertainment Times, dated, September 13, 2018, Mahesh Bhatt claimed that Jiah Khan had approached him for work before allegedly taking her life. He was quoted saying that Jiah came to him for work, but didn’t have any at that point of time. Later, on coming to know about her alleged suicide, he “felt really bad.”
Meanwhile, social media users went berserk over this coincidence. Nonetheless, a reddit post emerged where a user who is claiming to be Jiah Khan’s sister (we cannot guarantee the authenticity of this user) made some shocking discoveries. She said that Jiah Khan never went to him and that she hated Mahesh Bhatt deeply.
The twitter handle with the name @JiahKhanJustice tweeted, “There is a height to his lies my sister would never go to him she hated him deeply. She had six films in the pipeline we gave proof to CBI it’s these #BollywoodMafia who is putting a stop dragging the case by managing judicial system in Mumbai tell him to get his own health checked.”
The tweeter went on to mention that her sister disliked Mahesh Bhatt as his behavior was ‘creepy’. She claimed that Bhatt was intimidating Jiah Khan, who was only 16 years old at that time.
The tweeter also mentioned that Bhatts had a grudge with Jiah Khan and were bullying her for walking out of their movie.
After Sushant Singh’s death, Jiah Khan’s mother Rabiya Khan had called ‘bullying is also kind of killing somebody’. After Sushant’s sudden death, Mahesh Bhatt had been actively doing the rounds in many conspiracy theories suggesting that behind the scenes, Bhatt had a hand in pushing Sushant Singh Rajput to the edge.
In addition, there were rumours going around on the internet that Mahesh Bhatt and Rhea Chakraborty were having a secret affair. There have also been shocking claims that a few days before Sushant Singh’s death, Rhea deleted all personal photos with Sushant from her Instagram page. Perhaps it was due to break up or because of Bhatt’s intervention, the Mumbai police are still investigating the case on every possible angle.
Jia Khan, a British-American actress and singer had featured in three films from 2007 to 2010 and she was last seen acting in a movie- Housefull. On 3rd June 2013, Jiah Khan was found hanging with a ceiling fan in her Mumbai apartment.
Based on the prima facie, it appeared to be a suicide case but later Aditya Pancholi’s son Sooraj Pancholi was taken into police custody for promoting suicide. It was emerged that Sooraj Pancholi was Jiah’s boyfriend and they were allegedly in a live-in relationship.
Stars faced an untimely death at a very young age under mysterious circumstances which left the whole country shocked. But Bollywood is full of mysterious deaths of actors who passed away at a young age.
