Earlier this year, Pooja Bhatt attended the 'Closeted conversations... Let's start Talking Again', a conference for woman change-makers and spoke about her alcohol problem and how she got over it.
 
"It is not alcohol you are addicted to, it's the absence of absence. All of us somewhere are lonely. Some expect a man to find the answer while some find it easily in the bottle of alcohol. It seems very gratifying, it pulls you and before you know it, you are down the rabbit hole and it is difficult to come back," said Pooja, who is working on "Jism 3".
