Pooja Bhatt takes a dig at Amitabh Bachchan, haters call her ‘alcoholic’


Pooja Bhatt took a dig at megastar Amitabh Bachchan for his comment on Kathua rape case and she was not spared. She was trolled and various negative comments started to pour in. Social media users highly slammed Pooja Bhatt for targeting Big B and even went to call her ‘alcoholic’.

Pooja Bhatt commented, "I can't help being reminded of a film called Pink. Can our images on screen please be reflected in reality?"

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is also the brand ambassador of Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao was asked to comment on Kathua rape case few days back and he said,"Mujhe uss vishay par charcha karne mein ghin aati hai. So uss vishay ko uchhalo mat. It's terrible to even talk about it. 

"(I feel disgusted even talking about it. So, don't rake up this issue. It is terrible to even talk about it," Bachchan told reporters.

This very reply of Big B did not go well with Pooja Bhatt and she took a potshot at the megastar. But trollers are not impressed with the 'Daddy' star and she was highly slammed. 

One wrote on Twitter, “A known alcoholic trying to gain publicity by using the name of a legend.” Pooja, who quit drinking in December 2016, replied: “A ‘recovering’ alcoholic and proud of it. In a country where people don’t even acknowledge they have a drinking problem, let alone discuss it, I am grateful to stand away from the crowd that considers holding your frailties to light shameful. #485dayssober.”

However, Pooja is not the one to silently digest all the ill comments against her.

She retorted, A ‘recovering’ alcoholic & proud of it!In a country where people don’t even acknowledge they have a drinking problem,let alone discuss it I am grateful to stand away from the crowd that considers holding your frailties to light shameful. #485dayssober

Another user wrote#“Only brainless thakelis like Pooja Bhatt would even think of comparing movie roles or fictional stories to real life issues,” read one tweet. Pooja’s reply was as it should be…

Talking to Mumbai Mirror, Bhatt had once talked about fighting alcoholism: “Luckily, I pulled the plug before it became impossible for me to stop. I’m in the pink of health except for the weight I put on because I’m now a stressful producer. But being the daughter of an alcoholic makes you four times more susceptible to becoming one.”
