Inspired from Mahesh Bhatts super hit film Daddy

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and his daughter Pooja Bhatt were recently witnessed in Delhi for the screening of their play Daddy, which was inspired from Mahesh Bhatt’s super hit film ‘Daddy’. The event took place in Shri Ram Centre, Mandi House.

Daddy’s core theme was born out of Bhatt’s personal battle with alcoholism. At one time, Bhatt got heavily into drinking, which affected his personal life irreversibly until he realized his folly and decided to kick the habit for good. Daddy was the debut film of Pooja Bhatt and was written by his father Mahesh Bhatt.

Daddy, a sensitive story of role reversals is a unique fairy tale of a princess and her dad and how her courage broke an evil spell to make happily-ever-after possible for them. And for the same Bhatt added, “I was a successful filmmaker, once, when I returned home from the party, the daughter Shaheen turned her face from me. This incident totally changed my life. I quit drinking and wrote Daddy. It has been three decades since and I have not consumed alcohol,” said filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt while interacting with the audience.

The same film staged as a play and it stayed completely faithful to the original film. Presented by Mahesh Bhatt himself, the lead actor of the play is Mahesh Bhatt's longtime prodigy, Imran Zahid and directed by Dinesh Gautam.
