Asked if he is planning to write an autobiography, Bhatt said, “Whatever work I did was inspired from my personal life. I made movies based on my life. I feel first you have to write it, and then films are being made. Definitely, I would like to reveal truth about my life in a book form…”
Bhatt, known for movies like Zakhm and Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin , said he is already working on a book with a writer who has been “intensely involved in the process to present my life journey in a book form”.
The veteran filmmaker said there’s a need in present times to encourage young writers. “Today there’s an opportunity to support young writers’ efforts because only a writer can understand how difficult it is to write, especially in times when you do messaging on WhatsApp and don’t use pen and paper.
