Netizens call Mahesh Bhatt ‘Tharki Buddha’ after seeing videos of him kissing Manisha Rani and stroking Bebika Dhurve

Fans were shocked to find Mahesh Bhatt in the Bigg Boss OTT 2 house, but the director also received criticism for his actions.

In the midst of the special family week, veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt joined the Bigg Boss OTT 2 house to encourage his actress daughter Pooja Bhatt. On social media, a number of images and videos of Mahesh Bhatt inside the home have circulated.

The contestants welcomed the filmmaker with open arms. Before interacting with them and disclosing details about his private life, he greeted Pooja and the other competitors.


Mahesh Bhatt reportedly praised Bebika Dhurve and referred to her as a “tough chick” shortly after he entered the home. He commended Jad Hadid and expressed his admiration for Elvish Yadav for showing emotion during the Weekend Ka Vaar episode.

Mahesh Bhatt’s appearance inside the Bigg Boss OTT 2 house astonished many viewers, however, the filmmaker was also slammed for ‘kissing’ Manisha Rani and holding her hand.

A number of social media users took offence to the video of the same and labelled the director “tharki buddha.” He can be seen clutching and massaging Bebika’s hand in another video. Here are some of the responses from online users to Mahesh Bhatt’s popular videos:

On Twitter, a person said, “Disgusting.” A other person said, “Mujhe to bhot hi Ajib Lage Mahesh bhat.”

“Ye Puri industry ka sabsbe bda tharki hai apni beti Pooja ke saath intimate scene or isne he bola tha agr pooja iski beti nhi hoti toh uske saath he shaadi kr leta,” read another comment.

He was also seen stroking Bebika Dhurve’s hands as he was interacting with the other contestants.


Mahesh Bhatt also described how the birth of his daughter Shaheen, who was born when he was suffering with alcohol, dramatically altered him in the most recent episode.

Mahesh remembered how his daughter Pooja was born when he was only 23 years old. He was 20 when he got married and had a lot to overcome.

Mahesh has already been on the programme. Prior to this, he appeared on Salman Khan’s television version of the programme as a guest and offered Sunny Leone the movie “Jism 2.” He is merely entering this time as a relative.
