Mumbai: Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt’s son Rahul has revealed during his interrogation by the NIA that he had introduced 26/11 terror suspect David Coleman Headley to 15 other film personalities.

Film actors Karan Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Aarti Chabria and Tara Sharma were among the Bollywood personalities who met Headley through Rahul.

Some film critics are also among the 15 reported to have met Headley.

The nefarious designs of the suspect are apparent from the fact that he wanted to befriend the Bollywood industry and was using Rahul as the medium to do so.

Film star Emraan Hashmi is likely to be questioned by the NIA for his alleged links with the suspect. However, so far there is no information on the timing of the grilling of the 15 suspects.

Rahul also told the NIA that he and Headley had met several Bollywood personalities together, while the US national also met some of them in private.

Vilas, who was training them both at a gym frequented by the duo, said that as per his understanding David was an immigration lawyer and his job was just to train him.

The NIA is likely to unveil more details regarding Headley’s Bollywood connection in the coming days.
