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 gave many hits in his career, lived in the shadow of fear. Not only Rakesh Roshan but almost every actor and director of Bollywood was also under threat from the underworld.
Underworld pressure has always been on Bollywood. From Shah Rukh Khan to Gulshan Kumar, everyone used to get threatening calls from underworld gangsters Abu Salem and Chhota Shakeel demanding money.
After the murder of Gulshan Kumar, 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 film. The film broke all the records of success. Released in the year 2000, this film was made on a budget of 10 crores and earned a record of 62 crores.
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 outside his Santacruz office. Two people had opened fire on Rakesh. Rakesh was rushed to the hospital by his driver.
Actually, these bullets were not shot to kill Rakesh Roshan but to threaten him. Rakesh Roshan was threatened by the underworld that he should share in the profits of his blockbuster film 'Kaho Na Pyaar Hai'. But Rakesh Roshan had refused to give the money. This made Abu Salem angry.
At the behest of Abu Salem, one of the two men who opened fire on Rakesh Roshan was a sharpshooter. The name of that shooter was Jan Usman Khan. This was disclosed by Abu Salem's shooter himself when he was arrested by Delhi Police. At that 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, with time, the fear of the underworld from Bollywood ended. Today Rakesh Roshan is happy in his life. He will also work on Krrish 4 soon.
