You must have heard of a number of stories where the father or other family members of a girl child wanted to kill her after birth or not even let her enter the world. While many of those girls could not survive, some of them who survived grew up to fight back with the world and show what they can accomplish. One such survivor is this actress and beauty queen.
Actress-model Pooja Chopra, who will soon be seen in ‘Aiyaari’ starring Siddharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee is one of the few girls who survived despite her father being against her birth and worked hard to achieve the success she deserved. Her story is so moving that it will leave many of you teary-eyed.
Crowned as Miss India in 2009, Pooja Chopra shared her ordeal in an interview. She revealed to the world that her father did not want a girl child and told the same to Pooja’s mother even before she was born. In fact, when she was born, her father did not even visit the hospital to see her and her mother.
Her father’s brutality did not end here. He threw Pooja and her mother out of his house when she was barely 20 days old. At that time, Pooja’s sister was 7 years old. He had told Pooja’s mother to either leave her or leave his house. Then, her mother left her husband’s house in Kolkata and came to Mumbai.
Talking about her mother, Pooja said that she raised both her daughters with great difficulty. She said that her mother is a real fighter and thinks of girls as no less than boys. The actress thinks that whatever she is today, it is only because of her mother’s support and love.
