Two days after US terror suspect David Headley was charged with conspiracy in the Mumbai terror attacks, his acquaintance and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt's son Rahul today asserted he was innocent and assured full cooperation with the police in 26/11 investigations.

As he emerged after attending the wedding reception of gym instructor-friend Vilas Warak, who had also came under the scanner for his dealings with Headley, Rahul said "Marriage will definitely bring good luck to my friend."

On whether he was innocent, especially in the light of reports about Headley being charged with 26/11 conspiracy in the US, he reiterated, "Of course I am...I will fully cooperate with probe."

"When Headley's name surfaced and my name was linked to him, everybody, including National Investigation Agency (NIA) and local police, had inquired about him. I had then fully cooperated with them and would continue to do so."

Rahul, accompanied by his father Mahesh Bhatt and sister Pooja, attended the wedding.

Mahesh Bhatt, who normally shuns marriage functions, made it a point to attend Warak's wedding.

The filmmaker was moved when the bridegroom's father Pandurang went down on his knees and sought his blessings. A misty-eyed Pandurang looked emotional as he interacted with the veteran Bollywood personality.
