“I stopped drinking by first acknowledging that I had a drinking problem. Because you are a woman and you live in a society where you are always taught or forced to brush things under the carpet. We tend to bury this shameful habit that we have of covering it up and say, ”Oh, we don’t have a problem, it is somebody else’s and I am not that drunk,” Pooja has said in the past.


Pooja shot to stardom in the nineties with her roles in “Daddy”, “Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin”, “Sadak” and “Zakhm”. As a director, she has helmed “Paap”, “Kajraare” and “Jism 2” among other projects.
