The multi-talented daughter of Mahesh Bhatt and Lorraine Bright, Pooja Bhatt had stunned everyone with her bold avatar in the '80s and '90s. After making her acting debut with the film, Daddy, there has been no looking back for Pooja. The actress is the perfect replica of her father, Mahesh, and just like him, she is known for calling a spade a spade.
It was in 1968 when Mahesh Bhatt had tied the knot with Lorraine Bright, who had later changed her name to Kiran Bhatt. The couple had welcomed their first child, Pooja Bhatt after four years of marital bliss. Pooja Bhatt’s mother, Kiran was originally of English, Scottish, Burmese and Armenian descent.
A few moments back, Pooja Bhatt shared beautiful throwback memories on her mother, Lorraine Bright's birthday. She took to her IG handle and shared two unseen pictures from her archive. In the first picture, little Pooja was seen cutting her birthday cake with Lorraine and the second picture was a handwritten birthday card by Pooja for Lorraine.
Along with the pictures, Pooja wrote, “To my ever gorgeous Mother Lorraine Bright who then went onto become Kiran Bhatt... Happy Birthday and thank you! There would be no me if there was no you! Not to mention your amazing capacity to preserve and archive details of my life that recede way back in the mists of time... like this birthday note/card I made you when I was a child” followed by a heart emoticon.
Pooja also shared a stunning picture of Lorraine, revealing how she exemplified grace. In the monochrome picture, Lorraine was seen posing with a friend. Stating how she aced a mini dress with a bindi, Pooja wrote, “Happy Birthday Mother! If anyone could combine a bindi & a mini so effortlessly, you could! Style can be learned or acquired. Grace cannot. And you exemplified grace! #lorrainebright #kiranbhatt #birthdaygirl.”
On Mother’s Day 2021, Pooja had taken to her IG handle and had shared a throwback picture with Lorraine. Along with the picture, she had thanked her mother for all the life lessons and had written, “To my ever gorgeous Mother, Thank you! For giving me the gift of life,my love for animals,my disdain for physical discomfort & pain.. but mostly for teaching me to rely on myself and to savour my own company. Happy Mother’s Day!”
It was in the '70s, when Mahesh Bhatt’s extra-marital affair with Parveen Babi had begun. It had become a prime reason for the trouble in his and Kiran Bhatt’s marriage. After two-and-a-half-years of romance, Mahesh and Parveen had parted ways and during that time, his wife, Kiran too had distanced herself from him. Since Mahesh didn’t want to alienate from his wife and children, he stayed legally wedded to Kiran even after a mutual separation. During the shoot of Saaransh, Mahesh had met Soni Razdan, whom he had secretly dated for around two years before getting married in 1986.
Happiest birthday, Lorraine Bright!
