Rakesh Roshan once lived in the shadow of fear
Born on September 6, 1949 in Mumbai, Rakesh Roshan is celebrating his birthday today. On this occasion, we are going to tell you an anecdote related to him. Rakesh Roshan, who struck many blows in his career, lived in the shadow of fear. Not only Rakesh Roshan, but almost all Bollywood actors and directors were also threatened by the underworld.
The pressure of the underworld has always been on Bollywood. From Shah Rukh Khan to Gulshan Kumar, everyone used to receive threatening calls from underworld gangsters Abu Salem and Chhota Shakeel demanding money.
After Gulshan Kumar’s murder, this fear had increased even more. Actually, this anecdote is from when Rakesh Roshan launched his son Hrithik Roshan in Bollywood with Kaho Na Pyaar Hai. Amisha Patel was seen with him in this movie. The film broke all records for success. Released in 2000, this film was made on a budget of 10 million rupees and fetched a record 62 million rupees.
After this, in the year 2001, Rakesh Roshan was attacked by the people of the underworld. Rakesh Roshan was hit by two bullets during this attack. The attack on Rakesh took place in front of his office in Santacruz. Two people had opened fire on Rakesh. Rakesh was rushed to the hospital by his driver.
In reality, these bullets were not fired to kill Rakesh Roshan but to threaten him. Rakesh Roshan was threatened by the underworld that he should share in the proceeds from his hit movie ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’. But Rakesh Roshan had refused to give the money. This enraged Abu Salem.
At Abu Salem’s urging, one of the two men who opened fire on Rakesh Roshan was a sniper. That shooter’s name was Jan Usman Khan. This was revealed by the Abu Salem shooter himself when he was arrested by the Delhi police. At the time, the Delhi DCP had said in a statement that Khan had also admitted that he had also made threatening calls to singer Daler Mehndi.
However, three years after this incident, Rakesh again received death threats from the people of the underworld. Well, over time, the fear of the Bollywood underworld ended. Today Rakesh Roshan is happy in his life. It will also work on Krrish 4 soon.
