After 2020’s morale-roasting events, Mahesh Bhatt has much reason to be happy in 2021. Both his daughters Pooja Bhatt and Alia Bhatt have given powerful exceptional performances in different films.
While Alia Bhatt’s pitch-perfect portrayal of Gangubai Kathiawadi in the film’s teaser has won her universal accolades, her elder sister Pooja Bhatt is a force to reckon with in Netflix’s webseries Bombay Begums. Both the Bhatt actresses have given their career’s best performances in their respective works.
“And that too during the same year!” exclaims Pooja Bhatt. She admits their father MaheshBhatt has never been so happy in a long time.
“Bhatt Saab is like, why both of them in two successive films during the same year? It’s almost like destiny’s intervention. Bhatt Saab is over the moon,” a source very close to the director told me.
I am told Mahesh Bhatt won’t be persuaded to direct another film after Sadak 2. “He wishes he had made a better film to remember his collaboration with daughter Alia by,” a source tells me.
