Mahesh Bhatt reacts to Pooja Bhatt’s participation in ‘Bigg Boss OTT 2’
In a surprising turn of events, Pooja Bhatt, who was initially expected to join ‘Bigg Boss OTT 2’ as a panelist, made a dramatic entry into the show as a contestant. In a recent interview, her father Mahesh Bhatt spoke about his thoughts on her joining the show. Mahesh Bhatt expressed his admiration for her courage and curiosity, stating, “Life’s greatest adventures begin when we step into the unknown with courage and curiosity. She did just that. I admire his boldness.”
In a recent episode, Pooja candidly shared her journey of addiction and recovery from alcoholism, which she underwent at the age of 44. During a candid chat with Cyrus Broacha, who has also battled similar struggles in the past, Pooja revealed that her opening up about her addiction has received mixed reactions. She acknowledged that discussing addiction and recovery is often considered more acceptable for men in society, while women are discouraged from openly addressing these issues. Pooja further explained, “I admitted I had a drinking problem. That’s why I openly shared my addiction and my decision to quit drinking. Because in our society, addiction and recovery are considered a man’s territory. Men are given license to openly discuss alcohol addiction and recovery. However, women are discouraged from drinking openly and so their recovery remains hidden. I used to drink openly, so when I decided to recover from alcoholism, I realized that I shouldn’t do it secretly.”
With Pooja’s unfiltered personality, viewers can anticipate more revelations and intriguing moments from the show.
