The Bhatt family of the Indian film industry shares a warm equation with Pakistan. The former actress had visited Pakistan in 2016 to attend a fashion week. She walked the ramp with Junoon’s Ali Azmat.
She visited Pakistan again in 2017 to attend the birthday bash of the Azmat in Lahore and later travelled to Karachi.
During her visit to Pakistan, she tried out food from various restaurants from Karachi to Okara. She even posted pictures of street art in Karachi on her Instagram account.
The actress has visited Pakistan many times before. Bhatt is the daughter of famous Indian producer, Mahesh Bhatt, who has several times cast Pakistani actors in his films.
Both father and daughter talk about peaceful relations between India and Pakistan. During her visit to Pakistan, Pooja Bhatt had wished for peaceful relations between both countries so she could travel more easily to the other side of the border.
Pooja Bhatt visited Pakistan in 2002 for the first time. She has voiced her fondness for Pakistan in several interviews.
She says Pakistan has played a big role in her love life and marriage. According to her, she met her former husband Manish Makhija through Pakistani singer Ali Azmat. Bhatt says Makhija was a close friend of Azmat. She married Manish within two months of meeting him.
