Back in the day, Sushmita Sen and Vikram Bhatt were one of Bollywood’s most happening couples. The filmmaker was having extramarital affair with the beauty queen which led to his separation with wife.
Vikram Bhatt recently confessed more about his alleged affairs with Bollywood actors Ameesha Patel and Sushmita Sen. Recently, the director spoke about his personal life like never before.
Disturbed by complications in personal life, Vikaram contemplated suicide from the balcony of his house situated on the sixth floor. Recently in an interview to HT Brunch, the ‘Raaz’ director opened up on his affair with Sushmita Sen and suicidal thoughts.
“That was not because of Sushmita. That was because of what I’d done to my life. I had gotten divorced, my film Ghulam was yet to be released, I was only Sushmita Sen’s boyfriend, I was depressed, I missed my daughter like crazy…I had just made a mess of my life,” said the director.
Talking about his extramarital affair, Vikram said that he is still filled with regret. “I regret hurting my wife and my child and abandoning them. I regret the pain I caused them. I always believe that when you’re not courageous, you become cunning. I did not have the courage to tell Aditi how I felt. And it was all happening together, it was a big mess,” he admitted.
Vikram even went on to say that his love life with Sushmita and Ameesha were shallow ones. “I regret being weak at that time. Had I not been weak, things would have been different today. But when I look back in hindsight, it’s all about growing up, and everything teaches you something at least,” the director told the daily.
