Recently Mahesh Bhatt was seen with Alia Bhatt for a book launch event of his another daughter Shaheen. The legendary filmmaker losed his cool over a question of a journalist there.
Shaheen has written a book about her struggle with depression. The title of the book is ‘I’ve Never Been (Un)Happier’. Her parents Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan, sisters Pooja and Alia were all present at the book launch event.
Mahesh Bhatt’s anger got triggered when one of the journalists asked him about “fitting in the society”. The replied to the journalist in a very rude and angry manner. To this reaction of her dad, Alia’s voice can be heard saying calm down Pappa. However Mahesh Bhatt seemed to be in no mood of listening and continued his bashing. Then an embrassed Alia told her father, “I told you this would happen.” Alia tried to calm him down but it proved to be of no help.
During the event, Alia was in tears as she recalled sister Shaheen’s struggle with depression. Alia said that she felt terrible as a sister as she did not put herself out there enough to understand Shaheen and her problem.
Pooja Bhatt while speaking at the launch said that we should never ask somebody why they are depressed. There are various misconceptions prevailing in the society regarding depression that are needed to be erased. It is often called ‘Rich people’s disease’ which is not true at all.
