The biggest drawback of being a celeb is that the person is always under public scrutiny and many things (both true and false) are said and written about the person as well. While Pooja Bhatt and Alia Bhatt are step-sisters, some time back a rumour floated which suggested that Alia Bhatt is Pooja’s daughter.
When Alia was asked about it, she made fun of it and recently Pooja Bhatt also reacted in this regard. In a recent interview, Pooja Bhatt said, “Ye toh humare desh mein bahut purani cheez hai (This is not new in our country). Start talking about somebody’s relationship with their daughter or with their bhabhi or with their sister or with their whatever. Now, how do you counteract that? Ke aap iss cheez ko dignity bhi de sakte hai respond kar ke? It is absurd.”
Pooja and Alia are daughters of famous movie director Mahesh Bhatt who got married twice. First he got married to Kiran Bhatt with whom he had Pooja Bhatt and Rahul Bhatt but things turned ugly when Parveen Babi came into Mahesh Bhatt’s life and after separating from Parveen, Mahesh had an affair with Soni Razdan. Mahesh and Soni got married and they have two daughters – Shaheen and Alia.
Pooja is not much seen in movies now but recently she participated in controversial reality show Bigg Boss OTT2.
