Vikram Bhatt‘s love life has always been a twisted tale. The man who has had a prolific career in film making has also suffered quite a few setbacks in his personal life. His affair with Sushmita Sen and Ameesha Patel has been engraved in the history of Indian cinema while his failed marriage with his childhood love Aditi has received a fair amount of attention. For a good amount of time, the man has kept quiet over all of this by not letting anything hamper his faith. But now, he has come out in open to share his views on his life full of turmoil.
In his latest interview, Vikram Bhatt has shared how he regrets cheating on his wife with Sushmita Sen. “I regret hurting my wife and my child and abandoning them. I regret the pain I caused them. I always believe that when you’re not courageous, you become cunning. I did not have the courage to tell Aditi how I felt. And it was all happening together, it was a big mess”, quoted Vikram Bhatt.
He further added, “I regret being weak at that time. Had I not been weak, things would have been different today. But when I look back in hindsight, it’s all about growing up, and everything teaches you something at least.”
There was a moment in his life when he even contemplated committing suicide by jumping off his sixth floor apartment. This was apparently right after his breakup with Sushmita. But not blaming anybody for this, he stated, “That was not because of Sushmita. That was because of what I’d done to my life. I had gotten divorced, my film ‘Ghulam’ was yet to be released, I was only Sushmita Sen’s boyfriend, I was depressed, I missed my daughter like crazy…I had just made a mess of my life. I don’t think any one relationship in my life has wrecked me. I think I am a collection of wrecks.”
He has now launched a book named ‘A Handful of Sunshine’ which is said to be fairly based on his life. (Also Read: Vikram Bhatt: When I think of love, I think of pain and not joy)
