Bhatts Have Launched More Outsiders Than Anyone In Industry: Pooja Bhatt

New Delhi:  Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic demise kindled the nepotism debate in Bollywood and the Bhatt family, including Mahesh Bhatt, Mukesh Bhatt, Alia Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt, are being called out for working with star kids rather than outsiders.

Amid this uproar, actor-producer Pooja Bhatt, daughter of Mahesh Bhatt, took to social media to slam the trollers and rubbish the allegations of nepotism against the Bhatt family.

Defending her family, Pooja stated that the Bhatts have launched more outsiders than anyone in the industry.

“Have been asked to comment on the hot topic ‘nepotism’ that people are raging about. As someone who hails from a ‘family’ that has launched more new talent – actors, musicians and technicians – than the entire film industry combined, I can only laugh. Facts don’t find takers. Fiction does,” she tweeted.

She further wrote that earlier Bhatts were accused of launching outsiders instead of working with well-established stars and its strange that now, people are accusing them of nepotism.

“There was a time when the Bhatts were accused of having something against established actors and made to feel inferior for only working with/launching newcomers and not chasing stars. And now the same people play the nepotism card? Google and tweet guys and won’t even say think and speak,” she added.

Proving her claims, Pooja stated that recently, the Bhatts have launched a new talent in their upcoming movie ‘Sadak 2’.

“Even Sadak 2 gives birth to a brand new talent in the form of Suniljeet. A music teacher from Chandigarh who came to our office with no prior appointment, a dream, a harmonium and a brilliant song called Ishq Kamaal that was absorbed into the film on first hearing by my father,” she posted.

Pooja concluded her tweets by stating that nepotism allegations against the Bhatt family are baseless and it doesn’t affect them in any way.

“Toh yeh ‘Nepotism’ shabd se kissi aur ko zalil karne ki koshish karo doston. The people who have found their way into the movies through the springboard we provided over the decades know what we stand for. And if they have forgotten, it’s their tragedy. Not ours. Have a great day!” she wrote.
