Pooja Bhatt to write book on her alcohol addiction
KalingaTV News Network
Mumbai: Bollywood Actor-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt will co-author a book on how she overcame alcoholism. The book will be published by Penguin Random House India early next year.
“It wasn’t planned but we have announced the book on Bhai Dooj, when traditionally Indians have just ushered in a new year. As the Diwali lights continue to sparkle around us, please support me on this journey the way you always have through all my films,” the actress said.
Bhatt, however, maintained that the book , co-authored with Roshmila Bhattacharya, is not her autobiography.
“I would like to emphasise that it is not an autobiography. At 45, I am too young to write my memoirs. As they say in filmi terms, ‘Picture abhi baki hai, mere dost. But I can help others like me deal with their problem by talking about my journey,” said Bhatt.
In an interview in March, Bhatt had spoken about her battle with the bottle saying, “If I didn’t quit now, I’d have drank myself to the grave.
The actor recently shared her new venture on social media.
