Pooja Bhatt has made a brave revelation in her latest Instagram post about battling alcoholism. She shared a picture of herself and wrote a note about how it felt and how she was ridiculed by some, lauded by many for the same.

This is what she had to write- "Three yrs & nine months sober today. One more quarter and I will be four. As someone who drank openly,I chose to recover openly. I truly felt it was important to share my journey to tell others, women especially, who might be struggling that they are not alone & if I could do it so could they." (sic)

She added, "Was ridiculed by some but lauded for being courageous by most. I wondered why people termed speaking openly about addiction issues courageously. And also why there is an 'anonymous' attached to groups that help you recover. I understand more than ever today that it's because people simplify/stigmatize addictive behavior & tend to criminalize it without attempting to understand why someone used a substance to begin with.'' (sic) She also went on to write that alcohol is a drug and that was a drug of her choice. She penned- "Alcohol is a drug, and was my drug of choice. Just because it is socially acceptable does not mean it is not. I have had to make more excuses for NOT drinking in the last few yrs than I ever have for drinking-to friends, foes, and 'well' meaning acquaintances alike. A fractured society can only heal & evolve when we attempt to 'understand' instead of constantly standing in judgment." (sic)

The actress rose to sensation with the success of Daddy, the film that her father directed d starred Anupam Kher. She then went on to do films like Sadak, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin, Junoon, Pehla Nasha. She has also directed films like Holiday and Jism 2.
