Pooja Bhatt opens up on what Alia Bhatt, Mahesh Bhatt talk about over dinner


Actor Pooja Bhatt who was last seen in Bombay Begums where she essayed the role of a bank’s CEO, has now opened up about the kind of dinner table conversations that take place in the Bhatt household. “Rocking, in every way! The conversations range from world affairs, to plants, to thunderstorms to the best cheesecake – it’s a riot! You’d enjoy being a fly on the wall or, in our case, a lizard on the wall because we love lizards in our household. Between my father and me and Soni and Shaheen and Alia, we have different interests and strong opinions and ways of putting those opinions across,” she told Filmfare.

Bhatt, who is also very vocal about social issues, spoke about her alcoholism and her journey towards being sober. “We try to cover up many things and – look at my life – four years ago when I decided to quit drinking, I decided to be open about it. I felt like I was somebody who began her career with a film like Daddy which was about a young girl getting her father who’s an alcoholic to stop drinking. And there I was dealing with the same problem. I reached out to people out there to let them know that, you know, it’s something that could happen to anybody and women especially need to be a little bit more open about that. And I was so overwhelmed by the response that I got from random strangers,” she said.

All, in all, the actor and director is glad with the response that her digital debut has gotten. Besides Bhatt, Bombay Begums also features Amruta Subhash, Plabita Borthakur and Shahana Goswami. “I feel absolutely delighted and humbled by the reception that Bombay Begums has received. Women from across the country have reached out to say that finally, we can see stories about real women and how it plays out in the real world. Spring has arrived in the backyard and I’m exalting in it. I’ve also been very moved from messages from within the fraternity who’ve reached out to me and showered me with so much love,” she had told us earlier.
