Pooja Bhatt in a throwback interview spoke about Mahesh Bhatt and Lorraine Bright's broken marriage and her equation with her step-mother Soni Razdan.
Mahesh Bhatt is known for his controversial love life, alleged affairs, and of course his broken marriage with Lorraine Bright which had an impact on his kids Pooja and Rahul Bhatt. He was earlier married to Lorraine Bright and later got married to Soni Razdan and the duo gave birth to two daughters Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt.
His relationship with Lorriane began as a teenage romance and then blossomed onto marriage and having kids. Later in the '70s, Bhatt was involved with Parveen Babi in an extramarital affair. After two and a half years of romance, Bhatt parted ways with Parveen. During the years his relationship with Kiran (Lorainne's changed name) became distant too. He did not want to alienate his wife and children, he stayed legally wedded to Kiran even after mutual separation.
It was during the shoot of Saransh when Bhatt met Soni Razdan. Mahesh converted his faith to marry Soni after secretly dating her for two years.
In a throwback interview with Stardust, Pooja Bhatt had spoken her heart out about her parent's broken marriage and its effect on her, "I am lucky that did not have a traumatic childhood, my mom and day used to fight at times and there would be utter chaos in the house, but I was always a silent spectator of it. It of course had a psychological effect on me. I just had to accept it. I do not blame my dad and mom for that matter of splits. Both are equally to be blamed."
Talking about Soni Razdan she said, "Earlier I used to hate Soni for snatching my father away from me. I did resent my dad for leaving my mother for another woman. It was the mom who made me understand practically."
She also stated in the interview that her mother Kiran made her believe not to hate or resent her Dad because he is a terrific man with a good heart.
There are many old photos of Pooja Bhatt spending quality time with Alia and Shaheen Bhatt. Even now they all spend time together as sisters and are often seen together at family functions.
