It won’t be wrong to say that controversy is Mahesh Bhatt’s second name. There are very few filmmakers who sport a scandalous life, it is always the film stars who give us the gossip but not in this case. Mahesh Bhatt is one of those very few! He was a love child. Mahesh Bhatt’s parents were never married to each other. Maybe that explains a lot of his actions. All of Mahesh Bhatt’s controversies served hot for you peeps!
When Mahesh Bhatt was 20 years old, he fell in love with Lorraine Bright, whose name was later changed to Kiran Bhatt. Mahesh Bhatt was still a student when he fell for her. In fact Mahesh Bhatt’s movie, ‘Aashiqui’ is apparently loosely based on his love affair with his first wife.
After he directed the hit film ‘Arth’, many as his movies flopped, his relationship with wife Kiran Bhatt went from bad to worse. It is around that time that Mahesh Bhatt started having an extra-marital affair with actress Parveen Babi. Mahesh Bhatt met Parveen Babi in the late 1970’s. Parveen Babi had just split with alleged boyfriend Kabir Bedi when Mahesh Bhatt started dating her. Mahesh and Parveen dated from 1977 to 1980. They split when Parveen Babi was diagnosed with Schizophrenia. Also Mahesh Bhatt never had a formal divorce from his first wife Kiran. In fact, Mahesh Bhatt started seeing Soni Razdan and started living with Kiran Bhatt at the same time.
Way too complicated bro! Later, Mahesh Bhatt converted to Islam and married Soni Razdan . But his marriage to Soni Razdan did not stop him from living with his first wife Kiran. Like seriously, what’s up with him? He is also credited for giving a chance to his family members in the industry including Emraan Hashmi and Pooja Bhatt.
We are sure you might remember seeing Mahesh Bhatt and daughter Pooja Bhatt’s very controversial magazine cover where the father-daughter duo are clicked kissing each other on the lips. Mahesh Bhatt’s controversial magazine cover became the talk of the town and the family was dissed by fans. Now only this, but Mahesh Bhatt also made this controversial statement, “If Pooja wasn’t my daughter, I’d love to marry her.” Well only Mahesh can explain what was he even thinking when he said that.
Mahesh Bhatt has strained relations with his only son Rahul Bhatt and has another daugther Pooja Bhatt from his forst marriage. Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan have two daughters, Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt.
