The National Investigation Agency’s (NIA) probe on Mahesh Bhatt’s son, Rahul’s alleged links with terror suspect David Coleman Headley have not deterred filmmaker Anurag Basu’s plans.

He is set to revive Rahul’s Bollywood launch, Suicide Bomber.

Confirming the news, Basu said, “I have been missing Bhatt saab and his production house Vishesh Films. I did two films with them, Murder and Gangster, which put me on the filmmaking map. Rahul is a good boy and I owe him a good break in Bollywood.”

Basu was supposed to launch Rahul in Suicide Bomber two years ago. This was long before Basu got busy with Rakesh Roshan’s Kites. “In fact, I was supposed to make Suicide Bomber with Rahul before Life In A Metro for UTV. However, at that point of time, the script about global terrorism seemed premature. However, in the last two years there have been so many films on the subject including New York and Kurbaan. So, reviving Suicide Bomber seems right,” added Basu.

Besides being fond of Rahul, Basu has another reason to return to the Bhatt camp. He elaborated, “Suicide Bomber is the only film that I co-wrote with Mahesh Bhatt saab. Otherwise, all my scripts have been written solely by me. I certainly want to make the film and that too only with Rahul.”

Some time ago, when asked about his son’s launch, Mahesh Bhatt had also made it clear that he wanted to launch his son with no other film but Suicide Bomber. He had said: “Suicide Bomber is my idea and our company has registered the title. My son has made it clear that if and when he gets into the world of acting it will be with Suicide Bomber. I only want to make Suicide Bomber if the world is ready to hear the so-called enemy’s point of view. If we want to stop the bloodshed we’ll have to hear their voice. My son’s film doesn’t have a happy ending.”

The film is expected to start next year.
