Mumbai [India], Mar. 3 (ANI): Reacting to the 'death threats' Bhatt family faced recently, Alia Bhatt said that her father Mahesh Bhatt and the police did not give her a chance to panic and added that all are safe and happy now. "My father (Mahesh Bhatt) and the police did not give me a chance to panic. They just took over. But things have resolved now. Everyone is safe and happy," she told media here, when quizzed on the same. Adding, "With my father (Mahesh Bhatt) by my side, there is no reason to get scared." Meanwhile, based on the complaint registered by filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, the Anti Extortion Cell (AEC) has, with the help of Special Task Force (STF) UP Police, identified and detained one person in connection to the threats, yesterday. The caller had demanded Rs. 50 lakh from Bhatt and threatened to kill his daughter Alia and wife Soni Razdan, if the amount was not given. Bhatt later took to Twitter and confirmed the news. "A bolt from the blue in the form of an extortion call and threat to my family was nipped in the bud by the MH & UP police in tandem. Gratitude!" he posted. Earlier in November 2014, 13 people belonging to a certain D gang were arrested, who had plotted to eliminate Bhatt and his whole family. On the work front, Alia is on a promotional spree for her upcoming movie 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania,' alongside Varun Dhawan, set to release on March 10. (ANI)
