Bhatt’s ‘shameful’ confession

Friday, July 02, 2010

NEW DELHI: FILMMAKER Mahesh Bhatt says his films Arth, Zakhm and Daddy were inspired from his personal experiences of cheating on his wife, being an illegitimate child and that of being an alcoholic.

"What people are ashamed of usually makes a good story... I was ashamed of cheating on my wife, of being a child born out of wedlock, of being an alcoholic. These emotions created Arth, Zakhm and Daddy," Bhatt posted on micro-blogging website Twitter.

His 1982 movie Arth is said to be a semi-autobiographical account of his extra-marital relationship with yesteryear diva Parveen Babi. Woh Lamhe, released in 2006, is reportedly based on Parveen Babi's battle with schizophrenia and her relationship with Bhatt.

Daddy is a story about a young daughter who rescues her father from the brink of destroying himself from alcoholism. The critically acclaimed Zakhm is the story of an illegitimate child, played by Ajay Devgn.
