Filmmaker and actress Pooja Bhatt has been making the headlines for the past few months by sharing insights from her personal and professional life. Ever since she participated in Bigg Boss OTT 2, the audiences have seen a different version of her. As someone who has led a very unapologetic life, she has now been addressing the rumours and controversies surrounding her in media interaction. She recently opened up about the rumours of Alia Bhatt being her and their father Mahesh Bhatt’s child.
In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, she was asked if she was aware of the rumours that were going around regarding her and her half-sister Alia. Given the huge age gap between the two, it was widely reported that the Gangubai Kathiawadi actress was Pooja’s daughter. Calling the speculation idiotic, she even recalled how her sister had laughed off the ridiculous rumour. She expressed that people are more interested in talking about other people’s lives and their family members.
