Pooja Bhatt is known for her fierce attitude and calling a spade a spade. The actress made waves with her stint in the reality show, Bigg Boss OTT 2. She not only expressed her opinion strongly, but also talked about her difficult phase of life. Recently, Pooja Bhatt talked about her viral kissing picture with Mahesh Bhatt, which was released on the cover page of a magazine in the '90s.
Recently, Pooja Bhatt talked about her life on Siddharth Kanan's talk show. During one of the segments, the host asked Pooja about her viral kissing picture with Mahesh Bhatt in the '90s, which was talked about a lot and whether she regrets doing it. Pooja denied it and said it was a 'frozen moment' represented and misinterpreted in any way the people wanted. She added that it was a simple kiss shared between a child and a parent. She said:
"No, because I see it very simple, and I think that unfortunately jo hota hai, a frozen moment can be represented and misrepresented in anyway. Aur mujhe yaad hai Shah Rukh ne mujhe yeh kaha tha when you have daughters, jab hi aapke bacche chote hai, how often child just say, 'Mummy papa give me a kiss'. And they go this way. Mai ab bhi is umer mein bhi wahi 10 pound ki bacchi hoon for my father. Vo jindagi bher wahi rahege for me."
Pooja further called it an innocent moment, and she doesn't want to defend it. She added that people took her relationship with her father in a long light. She said:
"So it was a moment that was absolutely innocent which was captured. Aur uske conotation jo hai, jinko padhna hai vo padhge, jinko dekhna hai vo dekhege. Aur mai is cheej ko defend karne nahi baithi. Agr log baap aur beti ke rishte ko alag najariye se dekh sakte hai toh vo kuch bhi kar skte hai. Fir hum baat karte hai family values ki. Bahut kamal ka joke hai."
In the same interview, Pooja Bhatt was asked about the rumour that she was Alia Bhatt's mother. She called it 'idiotic'. She said she doesn't laugh at it, and people unnecessarily talk about it. She added that people asked her about her father, Mahesh Bhatt's behaviour with female contestants of BB OTT 2. Pooja called it a reflection of people's minds, and not the person's character. Regarding the question, Pooja said that when people talk about someone's relationship in this light, you should not respond to it.

It all started when Mahesh Bhatt kissed his then-eighteen-year-old daughter, Pooja Bhatt, on the lips for a magazine shoot. It created a stir in the entire nation as, back in those days, kisses were not even shown on screen. However, it was Mahesh Bhatt's statement in the same magazine that left everyone in shock. He had admitted that if Pooja weren't his daughter, he would have married her. The picture led to many pass hate comments for Mahesh and Pooja. They had received a lot of hatred and mean comments for the same.
