Rakesh Roshan, who was attacked last year in an alleged extortion bid.The Mumbai Crime Branch, led by the Joint Commissioner of Police, Mr. D Sivanand, has effected two arrests in the case so far, and interrogated Mr. Salman Khan, who also acted in Mr. Rizvi's film.The Rizvi case assumes significance for the reason that police have claimed to have clinched `concrete evidence' for the first time about Bollywood's nexus with the underworld which was suspected for long.The Rizvi statement has thrown a flood of light on the modus operandi of mafia which has been forcing directors, producers and actors into coercion, with the police claiming to be in the possession of a transcipt of a telephonic conversation between the arrested producer and the Karachi-based underworld don, the official said ...Mr. Rizvi, once a clap man who was paid Rs. 1,000 a month rose to become assistant producer, making some `B' and `C' grade films and later shot into limelight with the Rs. 12.7 crores budget Chori Chori Chupke Chupke which featured Mr. Salman Khan, Ms. Rani Mukherjee and Ms Preity Zinta.Police believe the money came from Chhota Shakeel and they claim to have sufficient evidence to prove that Mr. Rizvi had acted as a front man for the underworld don. But the film's financier, Mr. Bharat Shah, maintained that he had financed through recorded payments.Mr. Rizvi also allegedly threatened actor-producer Mr. Ajay Devgan's secretary to reschedule the opening of Raju Chacha, which clashed with his film's release. It is alleged that Mr. Rizvi had used Shakeel to pressure stars to act in his films and forced many distributors to reschedule their films to get maximum profit for himself.Film producer, Mr. Harish Sugandh, brother of producer, Mr. Jhamu Sugandh, has been summoned to city police headquarters and is likely to be quizzed tomorrow in connection with financing of his recent film, police sources said here today. Earlier, police recovered some documents and diaries from the producers' office here, the sources added.
