Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt is the latest celebrity to have been a victim of death hoax. Rumours were rife that the film-maker passed away after suffering from a heart attack, reported Pinkvilla.
However, his daughter and actor, Pooja Bhatt, has rubbished reports. She took to social media to quash the rumours and even shared pictures as proof.
Taking to Instagram, she wrote, “To the rumour mongers and the ones who called in a genuine state of panic upon hearing that my father Mahesh Bhatt had a heart attack and is dead, here is ample proof that he is his usual self, living dangerously and kicking! In red shoes no less!”
“This one ain’t going nowhere in a hurry and will hopefully survive us all!” she added, sharing two pictures of the Raaz film-maker.
On the work front, the director is currently working on Sadak 2.
After the completion of one spell of the shoot of the film in late August, Pooja wrote an Instagram post in praise of her father and how he had ignited a “fire” in her team.
“Wrap/Unwrap.. and with that we ended a truly magnificent schedule for Sadak 2 in Mysore! Can’t wait to be back on set! Each day pushed our limits, each day revealed something more to each of us. And long after the last trunk was packed and the last tempo sent on its way home, the fire Mahesh Bhatt has ignited in all of us continues to blaze with fervour, passion and a desire to do even more!”
Sadak 2 is a sequel of Mahesh’s 1991 hit Sadak. The 90s hit was a romantic thriller and featuring Pooja and Sanjay Dutt as its main leads.
The sequel stars Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt. Sadak 2 is scheduled to release on July 10 next year.
