Your stepsister Alia says you're the only one the entire Bhatt family (including your father Mahesh Bhatt) listens to...
Is that true? I don't know. But I do know that I have a conscience and moral values. And I think a conscience is what finally matters You won't see me compromising just because it is convenient for me to do so. A friend suggested that I write my autobiography. I can write a book, but I've to tell the truth. And I can't do that because it involves other people's lives. What would we be without those who are part of our lives? As I grow older I realise that just because I'm so obsessed with the truth it doesn't mean that everyone else in my life is equally comfortable with it. So either I drop the idea of an autobiography or wait for everyone I love to just die (laughs).That's a terrible thought. Cancel the autobiography!
Pooja, how come we don't see you on screen any more?
I am not offered anything. No one wants to cast me! Earlier they thought I was a producer-director's daughter , hence difficult. Now I am a producer-director myself. So you can imagine how intimidated they are. The last person who was brave enough to cast me was Rahul Bose in Everybody Says I'm Fine. He gave me no choice. He is my dearest friend . I confided in him about how disillusioned I was by the business of cinema and stardom. He offered me a role. I was aghast. 'What kind of a friend are you? I just told you I'm sick of the industry and you're offering me a role???!!!' He insisted that only I could play Tanya. But I am so glad he insisted.I am indebted to him. When a friend insists the least you can do is succumb.
