Mahesh Bhatt recently made a rare media appearance and was surrounded by shutterbugs, who asked him about Pooja Bhatt’s first marriage. Here’s what he replied.
Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt has always fetched attention due to his statement and has often faced criticism from the public for his surprising words. Recently, he made a rare appearance in the media when he attended the screening of his daughter Alia Bhatt‘s upcoming movie, “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani.” Soon after the screening was over he left with his wife Soni Razdan when photographers surrounded him asking questions about his oldest daughter, Pooja Bhatt, who got divorced. However, he replied in an absurd way.
A video posted on Instagram by the entertainment portal Pinkvilla is making waves. It shows the photographers praising Pooja Bhatt and her performance in Bigg Boss OTT 2. And amid this, he asked about her first marriage, which ended in divorce. But Mahesh Bhatt ignored the question saying that he is currently a fan of his daughter Alia, which made people around him laugh. Although the netizens were quick to catch him and called him rude for giving such kind of statement.
Take a look at the clip below:
After watching the video the comment section was flooded with numerous reactions. One user said, “How rude mahesh bhatt we don’t like this answer Pooja kaagy Alia is nothing.” Another said, “Why this discrimination between two own daughters.” while another one wrote, “He’s a fan of the daughter who gets pregnant before marriage wow kya baat hai.” Another wrote, “What a horrid response!”
For those who are still unaware of Pooja and Mahesh Bhatt’s relationship, she is the eldest daughter from his father’s first marriage with Kiran Bhatt. They also had a son Rahul Bhatt. Whereas Alia and Shahen are his daughters from his second marriage to Soni Razdan after he separated from his first wife.
