Mahesh Bhatt and his never-ending controversies: Mahesh Bhatt has always had an old and bold association with controversies. Born to a Muslim mother and Hindu father out of wedlock, he never knew family with the same compassion that we do. When it comes to the most heated controversies in Bollywood, the Bhatt family is always the first name that comes to mind. The way he looks at relationships is different because we have many examples in front of us. For him, relationships were not white or black; his love had all the shades of grey. To lip-lock with his daughter and marry a woman without divorcing his first wife, he turns the pure relationship down.
So let’s take a look at the controversial life of Mahesh Bhatt:
Mahesh Bhatt’s first wife, Lorraine Bright:
Mahesh’s first wife was Lorraine Bright, whom he met as a teenager. Lorraine adopted the name Kira Bhatt after marrying Mahesh. The couple had a daughter named Pooja Bhatt when they were only 21. However, their love story was strained after he began to fancy the late actress Parveen Babi.
Mahesh Bhatt and daughter Pooja Bhatt:
Mahesh Bhatt did a bold photo shoot for a film magazine with his daughter and actress Pooja Bhatt, in which they lip-locked. As soon as the photo was published, there was a panic in Mahesh’s life in Bollywood. After the photo went viral, there was so much controversy in the media about the photo shoot that Mahesh had to hold a press conference to end it. During the conference, Mahesh said that he would have married Pooja if she weren’t his daughter. Mahesh became so mired in controversy that he suffered from despair.
Mahesh Bhatt and Kangana Ranaut:
While Mahesh Bhatt was the name who introduced Kangana Ranaut’s introduction to big screen films like Gangster and Woh Lamhe, the actress and her sister, Rangoli Chandel, subsequently alleged that Bhatt had abused her and thrown ‘chappals’ at her. She said that this occurred as a result of her rejection of his film, Dhokha.
