Pooja Bhatt

Actress-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt says she goes by advice that her father Mahesh Bhatt once gave her about the process of casting. Since then, she never follows Bollywood’s diktats.


“A lesson I’ve learned from my father with regard to casting & one I apply to each film I make- “we don’t need new people, we need new EYES’. If I had gone by Bollywood dictates, John Abraham would not have been in JISM nor Irrfan in ROG. Rahat dubbed in PAAP & no Sunny in JISM2 (sic),” Pooja tweeted.

“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun. I will cast with my heart & back people I believe in for I rather fail on my terms than yours,” she added.
