Pooja Bhatt, one of India’s finest film makers, has made her way into the Limca Book of Records. Two films that were produced by Pooja, Paap and Rog, were the first films from Hindi cinema to have their world premiere in Pakistan, during the Kara Film Festival in 2003 and 2004 respectively.

Paap starred John Abraham and introduced Udita Goswami, while Rog was directed by Himanshu Bhrambhatt. Both films were produced by Pooja’s banner Fish Eye Network.

We spoke exclusively to Pooja earlier, and she told us just how much this achievement means to her: “Paap has been a true example of a synergy between India & Pakistan at a time when relations between both countries were cold to say the least. How can you separate the music of Paap-Ali Azmat’s Garaj Baras & Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s Mann Ki Lagan from the film itself? Hence my decision to premiere the film in Pakistan came from the firm belief that the film belongs equally to audiences from both countries. Art and music has no boundaries. Paap exemplifies that thought.”

Both Pooja and her father Mahesh Bhatt are the original filmmakers who have always supported and worked with Pakistan. Pooja’s forthcoming films include Nark and Jism 3. We congratulate Pooja on this wonderful achievement!
