In a throwback interview with Filmfare, Mahesh Bhatt spoke about his ladylove Parveen Babi and his relationship with her. He also recalled a horrific incident when he once visited her apartment and saw her mother coiled up in her corridor.
Describing what he saw when he entered the house, he told Filmfare, “I walked into that bedroom lined up with innumerable perfumes (the fragrance still lingers in my mind) on the dressing table, to see a sight that sent a chill down my spine. Parveen was dressed in a film costume and sat curled up in the corner between the wall and the bed.
Her gait was beast-like. She had a kitchen knife in her hand. “What are you doing?” I asked. She said, “Shhsssh! Don’t talk! This room is bugged (installed with a spying device). They’re trying to kill me; they’re going to drop a chandelier on me.” She held my hand and led me outside.”
Mahesh Bhatt had also shared that he contacted well-known psychiatrists who said that Parveen Babi was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia.
Meanwhile, on the work front, he had taken over the directorial reins once again last year for ‘Sadak 2’. However, the film failed to impress the audience. It starred Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt.
