Pooja Bhatt questions garbage disposal and unauthorised parking in Bandra

In a separate tweet, she wrote: “If only every co-op society took responsibility for the lane/road outside their building with regards to indiscriminate garbage disposal and even unauthorised parking, life would be different.”

Pooja was last seen in the digital film Sadak 2 directed by her father Mahesh Bhatt. The film stars Pooja’s sister Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead.

Pooja is all set to return to the screen with the web series Bombay Begums.

“My #thinkingpout. Whenever I am at Sea, I have a beautiful perspective of both land and ocean… it’s a place where I am neutral. I have learned that the best decisions are made from where you’re neutral… and not from where you’re torn!! #sharing #introspection #depth #lifelessons #perspective #strength. I love you guys! #duggadugga,” she wrote with the image.

Sushmita made her comeback on screen with Ram Madhvani’s web series Aarya last year. The series was a hit and a second season is in the offing. The series marked her return to the screen five years after her last release, the 2015 Bengali arthouse release, Nirbaak.

Talking about the show, Sonu said: “Jay is my longtime friend. I am very happy to be his first guest on the ‘Jay-Ho!’ show, and I am sure this show will inspire millions of people to unlock their inner greatness and live their best lives.”

Host Jay Kumar said: “This show is going to give the audience a chance to see a different side of their favourite celebrities. We’re going to go deep and ask questions you don’t usually hear on TV — like, in such a cut-throat competitive industry, how do you manage your spiritual fitness along with physical fitness? I am sure all these answers will inspire the audience.”

The show’s name Jay-Ho translates to “Let there be victory”. The term can also mean “Praise from your heart”, which is an interpretation Jay Kumar prefers.

“Jay-Ho is a way of saying, ‘we praise you for your victory in life’s challenges’,” he said.
