From his extra-marital affair with actressto his many alleged affairs, Mahesh Bhatt has become famed for controversies. His controversial remarks about Bollywood and his fiery personality have made Mahesh Bhatt infamous for controversies.
With all of Mahesh Bhatt’s rumored philandering, it’s clear that the actor has never been a one-woman guy. In reality, Mahesh is reported to have had several relationships throughout his life, beginning with his first marriage to Kiran Bhatt (Pooja and Rahul Bhatt’s mother). He was recently in the headlines for his extramarital romance with actress Parveen Babi.
The women of Mahesh Bhatt life
While Bhatt moved in with his lady love, their romance ended tragically when Parveen developed paranoid schizophrenia. Following this rocky period, which included his divorce with Kiran, Bhatt married Soni Razdan (Alia and Shaheen Bhatt’s mother/), yet reports of the filmmaker’s romance continued to surface.
While Mahesh Bhatt was slandered in the 1980s for his magazine cover lip-lock with daughter, his bizarre comment that if Pooja wasn’t his daughter, he would have liked to marry her raised many eyebrows. And, over time, Mahesh became associated with a few names; in fact, a video of him improperly touching late actress Jiah Khan leaked online, causing a stir.
His Bollywood Scandals’
With actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Mahesh’s friendship with actress Rhea Chakraborty has been even hotter. Not only did photographs of Mahesh and Rhea’s private moments make the rounds on social media, but their Watsapp talks from the day and days leading up to Rajput’s death were also made public, making Bhatt a major suspect in the case. While the CBI is now investigating SSR’s death, Bhatt might be probed for his cryptic tweet regarding dead men on the day Rajput died.
Mahesh Bhatt is credited with translating his colorful love life into films. Aashiqui and Woh Lamhe, he has made several sarcastic remarks about Bollywood stars throughout his four-decade career. On national television, Mahesh Bhatt trashed Aamir Khan and his profession on a talk program. Not only that, he also called Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Kajol an overrated director and actress on the same episode.
Even during the AIB Roast scandal, Mahesh pointed out that because Sonakshi Sinha is the daughter of an MP, she was kept out of certain FIRs. However, his most famous battle in Bollywood was with Kangana Ranaut, who was introduced by Bhatt. Kangana and Rangoli accused Bhatt of throwing a slipper at her during a function just a year ago.
After Kangana turned down a film given by Bhatt, the producer-director nearly attacked the actress but was stopped by his daughter Pooja, according to the Ranaut sisters. Kangana further claimed that Bhatt threw a slipper at her as she left a screening of her film.
Mahesh Bhatt and the media
We are well aware about Mahesh relation with media. Bhatt has never held back his thoughts and has always spoken his opinion. He has been accused of misbehaving with the media at times. The 70-year-old director is accused of not only being disrespectful to reporters at events but also of angrily abusing reporters when questioned about something.
Well, as long as he continues to live in this unashamed way, he has reigned supreme over controversies and has never allowed his critics to influence his sharp tongue. “Mahesh is always correct when he says the wrong things…”, as one of his industry colleagues once said, and the director has been living up to this.
