Innocence trapped in the world of crime

A FAR MORE serious problem cropped up when a local newspaper in Mauritius linked Rahul Roy with a notorious dealer named Riyazat Hussain. Reportedly, when the police arrested Riyazat, he said Rahul was his partner in crime and produced some photographs of them together. Apparently, producer Yash Johar (who made Gumrah with Rahul in the lead), Romu Sippy and director Raj Sippy were in Mauritius trying to find an appropriate location for their shoot. When Yash Johar heard about the controversy, he decided to get to the bottom of the issue. Interestingly, the investigators found a photograph of Rahul posing with Riyazat in an album at the latter's residence and held that against him. Yashji argued that when actors take pictures with people, they are not aware of the individual's profession. In an interview Yashji claimed, "When the chief gave me the dates when Riyazat visited Mauritius, I pointed out that he wasn't in Mauritius at the time that Rahul was there. I remembered all the dates when he shot for Gumrah. So they acted upon what I told them and the authorities discovered that Riyazat had made several fake passports." He further even wrote a letter to the Indian High Commissioner in Mauritius to sort out the matter! Rahul maintained that he had been framed. He said he posed for 300 to 400 pictures daily and could not have known the identity of the people snapped with him. He confessed, "During the shooting of Gumrah he (Riyazat) had taken a photograph with me. So when he got caught he was asked about it. He claimed to be a friend of mine and a newspaper came out with headlines linking me to him." Yash Johar made the journalist print a clarification in the newspaper as the reports were solely based on the claims made by Riyazat and Rahul's side wasn't given due prominence. Rahul said, "How can people believe the words of a criminal against that of a public personality?" See more
