Pooja Bhatt Comeback in Acting
Miss Pooja Bhatt, an Indian actor & film-director make her comeback as a lead role in the Bombay Begums as Rani.
She said in an interview that she ‘buried’ the actor in her and concentrated on directing and producing.
“I must say, making movies gave me a lot of satisfaction,” she told Pinkvilla. “I mean direction is not something that I never aspired to do, I just went ahead and did it because very often you don’t find the right person to fill those shoes. Someone once told me that looking for a perfect director is like looking for a perfect man to marry, they don’t exist.”
She continued, “At 25 when I produced Tamanna, then Dushman and Zakhm, it gave me a sense of self worth that was beyond merely being an actor. While I was privileged to have gotten some extremely varied roles from Daddy, to Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin to Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayee and even Border for that matter. I felt that time that I was in, there was only that much one could do. I didn’t have the aspirations to be arm candy and just be in a commercial film because of the fact that there are two superstars in it. My question always was, what am I doing in it?”
