Happy birthday to Pooja Bhatt.
The viewers of bollywood films wish happy birthday to sweet actress Pooja Bhatt on 24th February, 2013. She being the daughter of eminent director Mahesh Bhatt, had the task of proving herself in the early phase of her career.
Her first film Daddy in 1989 itself created attention. It was directed by her father Mahesh Bhatt. She was in search of her alcoholic father Anupam Kher in the film. It was a great effort.
Her next films Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahi with Aamir Khan, Sadak with Sanjay Dutt stormed bollywood in 1991. In all the films of Pooja Bhatt, the stories and the music touched the souls of the viewers. All the songs of Dil Hai ki Manta Nahi and Sadak like “dil hai ki manta nahi” or “tujhe apna bananeki” became big hit.
She acted in a number of films in the 1990s including Tadipaar opposite Mithun Chakravarty, Phir Teri Kahaani Yaad Ayi, Angrakshak opposite Sunny Deol, etc. Her film Humdono opposite Rishi Kapoor and Nana Patekar was very impressive. She was also sublime in the films Prem Diwane, Satwaan Asmaan. In Satwaan Aasman she played the character of a cancer patient who died at the end of the film.
She received National Award for best film on other social issues for her film Tamanna. Her other film Zakhm opposite Ajay Devgan touched the souls of cinegoers. Her film Border in 1997 was also a big hit.
After late 1990s, Pooja Bhatt concentrated in film direction. She made impressive films like Holiday, Dhoka, Jism 2, etc. She also produced a number of these films. Her films should be restored for meaningful stories and melodious music.
