Old video of Mahesh Bhatt with Jiah Khan goes viral.

An old video from the early 2000s featuring filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt with the late actress Jiah Khan, who was then 16, has gone viral over the past few days.

The video, said to be from 2004, has Jiah cosying up to Bhatt and sharing a laugh.

Jiah made her Bollywood debut in Ram Gopal Varma’s “Nishabd”, starring Amitabh Bachchan, in 2007, although unconfirmed reports have stated that she was originally supposed to be cast in the 2004 release “Tumsa Nahin Dekha”, starring Emraan Hashmi and produced by Mahesh’s brother Mukesh Bhatt.

The video, available on the Instagram page of Bollymedialove, has started doing the rounds even as Mahesh Bhatt is being heavily trolled for his links with actress Rhea Chakraborty, who was the girlfriend of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Bhatt has also been facing social media ire over allegations that he has been promoting nepotism in Bollywood.

Rhea has been facing public and media heat ever since, shortly after Sushant’s death, his family filed an FIR charging Rhea and her family, among others, with abetment to suicide among other charges.

On the other hand, the conversation on Bollywood nepotism and favouritism has started all over again in the aftermath of actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on June 14, and Mahesh Bhatt has been heavily trolled in all these months.

Bhatt’s upcoming film “Sadak 2”, starring his daughters Alia and Pooja Bhatt along with Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur, is being seen as a prime example of Bollywood nepotism by a vast number of netizens, and the film has been trolled ever since its first look was launched. In fact the trailer of the film is one of the top three most dislike videos in the world, and a hashtag demanding the boycott of “Sadak 2” has been trending over the past few weeks. The film is scheduled to release on an OTT platform on August 28.

Jiah Khan was found dead under suspicious circumstances on June 3 2013, following which a case was filed against actor Sooraj Pancholi. Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan has alleged Sooraj and his father, actor Aditya Pancholi, used their clout to hush up the case.

Rhea-Chakraborty

Justice S. V. Kotwal of the Bombay High Court adjourned the bail pleas by Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik in a narcotics case for hearing on Sep. 29 next week (Tuesday), their lawyer said here on Thursday.

At the hearing this afternoon, advocate Satish Maneshinde argued that the investigations by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) were without jurisdiction and illegal as the Supreme Court order of Aug. 19 stated that all matters in relation to the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case be transferred to the CBI.

Refuting a submission by Additional Solicitor-General Anil Singh, that the NCB had not been served with a copy of the application, Maneshinde said that it had been served twice.

Terming the case against Rhea as “a witch hunt”, he informed the court that she has been charged for procuring drugs for consumption by Sushant and nothing has been seized from her.

He said the offences for which she had been charged are bailable as Sec. 27A of the NDPS Act is not applicable to the present case as no commercial quantities of drugs were recovered from the siblings.

After hearing Maneshinde, Justice Kotwal asked Singh if the NCB wanted to file a reply and accordingly posted the matter for hearing on Sep. 29.

The Chakraborty sister-brother are presently in extended judicial custody till Oct. 6.
