Apart from the appearance in the television show Bigg Boss and connections with David Headley, Rahul made news for his interview against his father.

He revealed that they never have a warm equation. He said that during growing years, he lacked a father figure and his childhood insecurities as his father never treated him like his own child.

"My father Mahesh Bhatt never treated me like his own child. It's the raw uncut truth about my relationship with my father. Perhaps if Mr. Mahesh Bhatt had been a father to me I wouldn't have got into the friendship with Headley. My childhood insecurities, the lack of a father-figure in my growing years were lacunas in my life that Mr Headley used to win over my confidence. I was vulnerable. I had no father to guide me in my growing years,” he said.

Rahul also emphasized that Mahesh always treated him like he is a bastard.
