Mahesh & Pooja Bhatt
I realized that Mahesh Bhatt was a creep, lowlife, and imbecile of the worst kind when I saw on the cover of a magazine the picture of him kissing his daughter Pooja Bhatt. It was not an affectionate or fatherly peck on the cheek or forehead. It was a lurid, sexualized, mouth-to-mouth kiss. The Bollywood elites are often described in the media as “the beautiful people,” but this father-daughter duo fall in the category of the horrible people. A picture of them kissing is exactly what you need to lose faith in the future of mankind.
The kissing photograph was pathetic. It was ghoulish. Try to imagine an open-mouthed, tongue-twister kiss between a gorilla and a donkey, both pigmy-sized, both having emblazoned on their faces the expression of pea-brained, sloppy druggies. As if the ghoulish mouth-to-mouth kiss was not enough to permanently tarnish their reputation, Mahesh gave even more reason for people to be contemptuous of him by smugly articulating his perverse desire for his daughter. He said: “If Pooja wasn’t my daughter, I’d have loved to marry her.” This guy is a total nut.
Did he expect to become popular by confessing that he lusted to marry his daughter? Perhaps his agenda was to normalize incest. Perhaps he wants to bring society down to the debauched level of the dysfunctional Bhatt family of which he is the patriarch. Nothing good has come out of his four decades long film career. He is the worst film director in Bollywood. His movies are garbage. A few of his films have done well, making him a lot of money, but that’s because the standards of the moviegoers are abysmally low—they often flock to the theaters to watch garbage.
Mahesh Bhatt is a brahmin name. By his movies, interviews, and antics like kissing his daughter, he has earned the reputation of being an atheist and nihilist. But the truth is that he is not a Brahmin or an atheist. He is a Muslim—his Islamic name is Aslam. In the last ten days, an old video of Mahesh addressing a large gathering of Muslims has gone viral on Twitter. He is ranting like a fundamentalist rabble-rouser in this video. He accuses George Bush and Narendra Modi of all kinds of wrongful acts and he tries to defend the perpetrators of 9/11.
In the video, he says: “What I have understood by reading Islam is that a scared man (dara hua aadmi) cannot be a Muslim. Wherever there is fear, there is no Islam. And where there is Islam, there is no fear. Wherever there is darkness, there is no light. And where there is light, there is no darkness.” Since he is devoted to Islam, why does he refrain from using the name Aslam? He despises Hinduism, but he continues to use a Brahmin name. Does he realize what his fate would be in any Islamic country? The sharia prescribes draconian punishments for incest.
Mahesh is close to the controversial preacher Zakir Naik who has fled from India, is wanted by the Indian law enforcement agencies, and is on the watchlist of several major countries, including Russia, America, and Britain. Mahesh’s son Rahul Bhatt was a close friend of the terrorist David Headley, the mastermind behind the 2008 Mumbai attacks in which 175 people lost their life and 300 were injured. Currently, Headley is in an American prison.
Alia Bhatt, Mahesh’s daughter, is married to Ranbir Kapoor who has proclaimed in an interview that beef was his favorite food. He said: “I am a big beef guy.” Why does a film star need to talk about his food habits? I believe that Ranbir talked about his taste for beef because he wanted to show his contempt for the Hindu tradition which reveres the cow. Brahmāstra, the movie starring Alia and Ranbir, is releasing on 9th September. This movie is not about the real Brahmastra, the traditional weapon of Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism). It is anti-Hindu garbage and it stinks.
Any film connected with Mahesh Bhatt and his dysfunctional family will always be garbage. The makers of Brahmāstra must be tarred, feathered, and drummed out of Bollywood.
