Alia Bhatt’s Mother Soni Razdan Smoked Many Cigarettes While She Was Pregnant With Her


Alia Bhatt’s mother Soni Razdan has made a surprising revelation. She said she smoked “many cigarettes” while shooting for a scene in the movie Gumrah. But apparently, she didn’t even know she was pregnant.

Soni Razdan, while remembering her old days of film Gumrah’s shooting said at that time in 1993 she was pregnant with Alia Bhatt but didn’t know about that. So as per the demand of the scene, she smoked a lot of cigarettes. Film Gumrah was shot in 1993 and starred Sridevi and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles. The film got released on August 3, 1993, after Alia Bhatt’s birth in March 1993.

Soni wrote on Twitter, “One of my favourite films and highly appreciated roles. Was such a pleasure to act with the incredible Sridevi. Highly cherished memories. Was also pregnant with Alia at the time and didn’t know it yet. And did that scene where I smoked soooo many cigarettes,”

The film Gumrah was directed by Mahesh Bhatt and it turned as seventh highest-grossing Hindi film of 1993. Soni Razdan had married filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt in 1986 and the couple has two daughters Shaheen and Alia.
