Pooja Bhatt’s Affairs and Relationships

 

Relationship between Mahesh Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt

When Mahesh Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt are mentioned, the trending photo of Pooja Bhatt kissing Mahesh Bhatt and his comments that followed immediately come to mind. There were alarming discoveries regarding Pooja's alleged relationship with her father in the 1990s that appeared in every newspaper. 

In addition to this, the photograph of Mahesh Bhatt kissing Pooja Bhatt on the lips for a magazine cover added fuel to the flames. In fact, the headline of the lead article stated that he would have married Pooja if she weren't his daughter. It read, I would have delighted to marry Pooja if she weren't my daughter.

Although Mahesh and Pooja made no comments on this matter, irrational rumors have persisted ever since.

 

Pooja Bhatt And Ranvir Shorey

Ranvir Shorey, an actor, and Pooja Bhatt were romantically involved. Great friends Pooja and Ranvir finally fell in love with one another. Even though they were dating, Pooja and Ranvir shared an apartment. Ranvir Shorey and Pooja Bhatt were reportedly engaged to be married, if the rumours are to be believed. Pooja Bhat claims that the two split up due to Pooja's boyfriend, Ranvir's aggressive behavior, overdrinking habit, and particularly an occasion where he hit her while intoxicated. Pooja even disclosed that she had a relationship with an alcoholic who had physically abused her in the past.

Ranvir, on the other hand, told a completely different tale in a shocking interview with Rediff.com. After their acrimonious split, Ranvir described their relationship as just like any normal couple. We had a few disagreements. but now (pauses and begins to look at the ceiling). I used to consume alcohol there. She frequently complained that I wasn't taking good care of her and that I was drinking too much. I once offered to leave the scene on such situations. She used to become violent when it irritated her. There would be a fight. If she continued to act in this manner, I must have told her at least 30 times that a relationship could not last.

 

Pooja Bhatt and Manish Makhija.

Pooja Bhatt found love with Manish Makhija, who was also known by the name Udham Singh, after an unpleasant breakup with Ranvir Shorey. Manish was an Indian VJ and restaurateur who lived in Mumbai. When Pooja and Manish first met, they quickly grew to be the best of friends and developed romantic feelings for one another. After only two months of courtship, Pooja Bhatt got engaged to Manish in 2003. Sadly, after 11 happy years of marriage, the two decided to separate ways in 2014. They had only started their everlasting adventure. And speaking about Pooja Bhatt's children, after spending 11 years as Manish's wife, Pooja resisted becoming a mother.

Pooja decided to utilize the microblogging website Twitter to explain the circumstances behind her divorce from Manish. She wrote, I prefer to live life on MY terms & refuse to perform to the gallery. Marriages and relationships are not made or broken by certificates! Live it up! After 11 illustrious years of marriage, my husband Munna and I have chosen to separate. We would want to thank everyone who cares and especially those who don't. We had an amicable divorce, if that makes sense, and we will always hold each other in the highest regard. I give this explanation since we both fall under the public domain. Now, our adversaries, friends, and supporters are free to conjecture.

The epitome of a daddy's girl was Pooja Bhatt, who was bubbly and lovely. After acting in successful movies like Sadak, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin, and Sir, Pooja decided to try her hand at producing and directing movies.

Pooja made her acting debut in Mahesh Bhatt's 1989 film Daddy when she was seventeen years old. She portrayed a daughter assisting her father's (Anupam Kher) alcohol abstinence. Her subsequent smash, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin, starring Aamir Khan, was clearly influenced by It Happened One Night in Hollywood. For it, Pooja received the Filmfare Best Female Debut Award.

She portrayed a sex worker in the 1992 remake of Taxi Driver, Sadak, starring Sanjay Dutt. She acted in notable movies including Sir from 1993, Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayee from 1993, Tadipaar from 1993, Chahat from 1996, Tamanna from 1997, and the blockbusters Border from 1997 and Zakhm from 1998.

With the film Paap, which starred John Abraham and Udita Goswami, she made her directorial debut. She then went on to direct films such as Holiday (2006), Dhokha (2007), Kajraare (2010), and Jism 2. (2012).

When Seth Dharamchand learns that his daughter has fled, he sends private investigators to find her. Pooja encounters Raghu Jetley (Aamir Khan), a brash newspaperman who just lost his job, on the bus to Bangalore. In exchange for an exclusive piece on her that would boost his dwindling career, he agrees to assist her.

Pooja is coerced into complying with his demands since he threatens to reveal her whereabouts to her father if she disobeys. Following the bus breakdown, Raghu and Pooja embark on a number of adventures together and discover that they are falling more and more in love with one another. Raghu wants to wed Pooja, but his financial situation prevents him from doing so. He never intended to win her affection, he just wanted to tell her story.

The 1991 Hindi-language romantic comedy Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin was produced in India.

Pooja Bhatt’s Controversy

 

Pooja Bhatt cover on a magazine saying I am not Virgin

Each of Pooja's covers, from the one for Cineblitz that said, I'm not a virgin! to the one for Stardust with the phrase, The New Morality, boasted of her newfound flaming status. While Pooja's bikini photos quickly became the new standard, she had no reservations about going against the grain.

 

Pooja Bhatt only wearing body paint.

Even though showing off body paint for Movie magazine in 1993 would have caused controversy. Pooja dares to show up in her birthday suit i.e Only paint on the body and no clothes.

 

Speculation That Alia Bhatt Is Pooja Bhatt's Daughter

When Alia made her Bollywood debut with Student Of The Year, rumors that she was Mahesh and Pooja Bhatt's child quickly took off. When Alia was asked what the worst rumor she has heard about herself was on Karan Johar's chat program, Koffee With Karan, she made a joke about it. I'm the daughter of Mahesh Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt, the lovely actress had responded. 

When asked about the same rumor during the marketing for 2 States, Alia said The Times of India, I was asked a question regarding my father's second marriage and I responded it's not something that has affected me as a child or possibly I never gave importance to.
The next thing I notice is that I am identified as the daughter of Pooja and Mahesh Bhatt. It is absurd! I think the author of this should get a brain scan because I feel bad for him.

 

Pooja Bhatt and Karishma Kapoor were also entangled in a dispute.

After Pooja made disparaging comments about Karisma Kapoor's parents, Randhir and Babita Kapoor, a simple movie rivalry had devolved into an unpleasant dispute. 
The world had just learned that Randhir and Babita had begun to live separately at the moment. 
Pooja had made derogatory comments about the pair, which caused a heated altercation.

 

Sadak 2 (2020)

Aryaa starts an organization called India Against Fake Gurus to warn people away from such charlatans because she thinks Nandini and Guruji killed her mother. But because her family has deemed her mentally unstable, she frequently finds it difficult to be taken seriously. Aryaa, who had planned a trip to Kailash with her boyfriend Vishal (Aditya Roy Kapur), escapes the hospital one day and ends up at Ravi's house. Ravi initially refuses, but he eventually agrees. On the other side, Aryaa's family and Guruji are figuring out how to find them.

The action thriller road movie Sadak 2  was made in 2020 by Fox Star Studios and Mukesh Bhatt under the banner Vishesh Films. It was directed by Mahesh Bhatt.
