The filmmaker went for a routine checkup that suggested he might need surgery. The surgery was performed four days ago. Mahesh’s son Rahul Bhatt confirmed the health reports and added that his father was hospitalized earlier this week where he underwent heart surgery. He also said that Mahesh is now back home and recovering quickly.
“All’s well that ends well. He’s fine now and back home. I can’t give you more details because too many people weren’t allowed in the hospital,” he added, according to a report from ETimes. So far, no other family members including Soni Razdan, Pooja Bhatt and Alia Bhatt have commented on the matter.
In November last year, Mahesh Bhatt had become a grandfather to Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s baby daughter Raha. He shared his excitement at welcoming his first grandchild into the family. Alia had organized an intimate baby shower attended by her and Ranbir’s closest family and friends. The parents-to-be were joined by Neetu Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor, Shaheen Bhatt and many more, all decked out in traditional outfits. Alia was seen wearing a yellow anarkali suit. Mahesh wore an all black outfit.
Alia gave birth to her daughter at HN Reliance Hospital in Mumbai. She announced the baby’s arrival via a joint post from her and Ranbir on Instagram: “And in the best news of our lives, our baby is here… and what a magical girl she is. We are officially bursting with love – blessed and obsessed PARENTS!!!!! Love love love,” she wrote in the post on Instagram.
Alia will next be seen in movies like Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and Jee Le Zaraa. She’ll also make her Hollywood debut with Netflix’s Heart Of Stone, which comes out in August.
