Pooja Bhatt agrees Karachi has the best food in South Asia

Bollywood actor and producer has visited Pakistan several times

Entertainment Desk February 25, 2021

In 2016, Bollywood actor and producer Pooja Bhatt visited Pakistan for a fashion week, walking the ramp with Junoon frontman Ali Azmat. The actor has recalled special moments from her memorable trip from time to time.

Recently, while interacting with her fans on Twitter, Bhatt admitted Karachi offers the best food in South Asia. She was responding to a post on the micro-blogging site, where a user wrote, "Karachi is the undisputed food champion of Pakistan. Don't bother coming at me on this."

To this, producer Faisal Rafi responded, "Of South Asia, I dare say."

Agreeing with Rafi, Bhatt replied, "I second that."

When she visited Pakistan, political tensions between the neighbouring countries were on the rise, following the Uri attacks. So much so, that Bollywood films starring Pakistani artists got banned in India.

But even then, Bhatt headed over to Karachi and celebrated Diwali in the city. The actor-turned-filmmaker was hosted by Azmat during her trip to the country. The visit was reportedly a personal trip for the ‘Zakhm’ star. Talking to the media in Pakistan at the time, Bhatt stated that she was happy to visit Karachi and mentioned that she has travelled to Pakistan several times before.
