After her Bollywood stint as an actor and then a filmmaker, Pooja Bhatt made her OTT debut with Bigg Boss OTT 2. Surprisingly, Pooja managed to connect with the digital audience and emerged as a finalist of the Salman Khan show. The actor-filmmaker has always been known for her fierceness and honesty, be it regarding her personal or professional life.
In an interview with Siddharth Kanan, Pooja opened up about tasting stardom in her teens and then deciding to not face the camera for the next 20 years. She also talked about her father Mahesh Bhatt choosing to marry again and how she never was insecure about it. Pooja further discussed the infamous kiss with her father for a magazine shoot, which continues to be used against them by naysayers.
Stating that she doesn’t regret it, Pooja Bhatt explained that ‘unfortunately’ frozen moments can be represented and misrepresented by many. She shared that Shah Rukh Khan told her the same. She also explained how as parents, you tend to always remain a baby, and you can show your affection by kissing them. “It was an innocent moment captured which has been connoted in so many ways. Jisko jo karna hai, woh karenge (people will do what they want to). I am not going to sit here and defend it. If someone can question a father-daughter bond like this, they are capable of thinking the worst.”
Pooja Bhatt on her father’s second family
Talking about her father’s choosing to marry Soni Razdan, Pooja Bhatt said that as a film family, their private life would always be splashed in magazines. However, before that, her parents sat her down and told her everything about their equation. She said that divorces, and broken families are very common today but her parents never lied to their kids, or even each other.
“They fell in love very young and then things changed between them. He met Soni and decided to get married. And my father told me everything. People may question how a young child was kept in confidence but I prefer it that way. Today, I see no difference between my brother and sisters. We are of the same blood, we are family. Soni will always be family to me. Relationships can never be made or broken through paper.”
Pooja Bhatt made her acting comeback last year with Netflix’s Bombay Begums, and later starred in Chup. The actor has shared that she has a couple of web shows lined up, which she’ll talk about soon.
