Film-maker and actor Pooja Bhatt is known to speak her mind and in an interview with Filmfare ME last year, this is what she said about her dad Mahesh Bhatt’s films she liked and disliked. She also speaks about poet and litterateur Kaifi Azmi saab who recognized the artist in Pooja when she was but nine years old.
“Whenever my dad got indifferent, the film was indifferent. Kartoos didn’t resonate with me but I loved Arth (it was shot in my house) and in Zakhm I was playing my grandmother. Of course, I love Saaransh and Daddy”.
“During the making of Arth when Kaifi Azmi saab visited us at home, my dad called me and asked me which was my favourite song from Arth and I was nine years old. When I said I loved Koi Yeh Kaise Bataye he was shocked. I remember him saying, “My child, you are doomed.”
