Ranvir Shorey has revealed on microblogging site Twitter that he was abused by Pooja Bhatt, the daughter of Mahesh Bhatt. He made the comments in response to a tweet which shared the link to a report where the allegations made by the Bollywood star was mentioned. He called the allegations a ‘sustained defamatory and malicious PR campaign’.
These kind of articles are the result of the sustained defamatory & malicious PR campaign that these film moguls have targeted me with for years! None of the media will bother to fact check old police and media records that will show that it was I who was abused by them!— Ranvir Shorey (@RanvirShorey) August 28, 2020
Pooja Bhatt had claimed that Ranvir Shorey was an alcohlic who used to beat her up. She claimed that the accomplished actor was abusive, drank too much and on one particular instance, had beaten her in a drunken state. They had previously been engaged to each other and were in a live-in relationship.
The actor claimed that a man that was shown with Pooja Bhatt in multiple photos in the report, Manish Makhija, her husband once upon a time, happened to be his best friend right until the ‘incident’ who later married her. Ranvir Shorey said that “All kinds of relationships are manipulated and psychological warfare used.”
This guy in the photos used to be my best friend right up until after the incident, and then turned around and married her. All kinds of relationships are manipulated and psychological warfare used. 🙏🏽— Ranvir Shorey (@RanvirShorey) August 28, 2020
