Actor Pooja Bhatt is not worried about the FIRs registered against a bunch of her industry colleagues ­including her half-sister Alia for being a part of the controversial AIB Knockout. She feels these are “frivolous and absurd cases filed by bullies to trouble people and waste the time of the courts that have more ­important cases to deal with”.
However, she agrees with Russell Peters when it comes to the way one of her first co-stars, Aamir Khan, has reacted to the roast.
“I feel it’s hypocritical self-styled moralists and the Aamir Khans of the world, who are more frightening and injurious. I am appalled at his sudden self-righteous mode. He has completely forgotten his body of work — the double meaning song, Bhaag DK Bose — in Delhi Belly, and the PK poster where he left nothing to the ­imagination, putting Sunny Leone to shame!” says the 41-year-old actor-turned filmmaker, who had romanced Aamir in the 90s hit, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin.
“In 1999, 13 actors including me were dragged to the court for cases of obscenity. We took it head on. I might have kissed on screen but we never did ­double meaning songs. I appeared in the court and the very next day, went to receive the National Award for the best film on social issues for Tamanna. Look at the hypocrisy of our people!”
