Much talked couple of the town Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor got married on April 14. Alia’s uncle and Mahesh Bhatt’s brother Mukesh Bhatt were missing from the guest list. The reason was that he was not invited to the wedding.
In 2021, the banner Vishesh films, which was helmed by both Bhatt brothers was entirely taken over by Mukesh Bhatt. It was officially announced that Mahesh Bhatt was no longer a part of Vishesh films. A source revealed that the wedding invitation was not sent to Mukesh Bhatt and his family.
When two brothers are not talking to each other, what is the point of the invitation then? But Mukesh Bhatt waited until the last moment to have an invitation to his niece’s wedding. An insider confirmed that the split between the two Bhatt brothers is final and irrevocable.
Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt will never come together
Mukesh in an interview confirmed that Vishesh Films was always his company. Mahesh Bhatt was only serving as a consultant. He said that there is no fight between them. But Mahesh Bhatt doesn’t want to hold the position anymore.
Mahesh Bhatt joined as creative head in 2000. Mukesh Bhatt is an Indian film producer. He is the younger brother of Mahesh Bhatt. He produced several movies like Sadak 2, and Ghulam. He was born on 4 June 1985.
Married to Nilima Bhatt, he has one daughter named Sakshi and a son, Vishesh. Vishesh films were set up after his son’s name. Vishesh Films is a production company set up in 1986. It was co-owned by both Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt. But in 2021, Vishesh films were taken up by Mukesh Bhatt due to their split up.
Bhatt’s first film was Jurm’s (1990) as a producer. It was not very successful. In 1990, he along with Gulshan Kumar produced Aashiqui. The film was directed by Mahesh. After that, he gave many big hits like Dil hai ki Manta nahi, Sadak, Sir, Naajayaz, Criminal, Fareb. He introduced his nephew Imraan Hashmi in Footpath in 2004.
In 2015, he along with his brother Mahesh produced Hamari Adhoori Kahani 2015 which is based on the love story of Bhatt’s parents. There have always been on and off rumors of a rift between Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt. But none of them spoke publicly.
After parting their ways from Vishesh films in 2021, Mahesh proved that their differences are not professional but personal as well. This came as proof when Mukhesh Bhatt was missing at Alia’s wedding.
