Pooja Bhatt learnt `casting` lessons from dad

Mumbai: Actress-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt says she goes by advice that her father Mahesh Bhatt once gave her about the process of casting. Since then, she never follows Bollywood`s diktats.

"A lesson I`ve learned from my father with regard to casting & one I apply to each film I make- "we don`t need new people, we need new EYES`. If I had gone by Bollywood dictates, John Abraham would not have been in JISM nor Irrfan in ROG. Rahat dubbed in PAAP & no Sunny in JISM2 (sic)," Pooja tweeted.

"If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun. I will cast with my heart & back people I believe in for I rather fail on my terms than yours," she added.
