Actress and model Pooja Batra made her debut in Bollywood in 1997 with Virasat starring Anil Kapoor, Tabu and late actor Amrish Puri in the titular roles. She worked in around 20 movies including Haseena Maan Jayegi, Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya and Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye among others, but her Bollywood career was short-lived.
She married orthopaedic surgeon Dr Sonu S. Ahluwalia in Los Angeles, California in 2002 and filed for divorce in 2011 citing irreconcilable differences.
But who said love doesn't knock on your door the second time?
The former Miss India International is in a relationship with Don 2 actor Nawab Shah and we're rooting for this couple.
We happened to scroll through Nawab's Instagram feed and found some loved-up pictures of this duo.
He shared a selfie from their Goa vacay and wrote, "ONE.❤️🦋"
There's another one that he shared where the two are seen chilling in the swimming pool with the caption, "The one who makes life come to life 🦋❤️🎩"
He also shared a picture on Eid where he was holding her hand. But what caught our attention was a ring on Pooja's finger and the caption read, "It took 46 years for my soul to be Ready, and then my mate appeared. Eid Mubarak soulmate ❤️🦋 .
Eid Mubarak to all 😊"
Pooja also shared a similar picture with 'soulmate' Nawab and wrote, "Life’s a party when you are with your soulmate."
Aren't they adorable?
Nawab was last seen in Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai.
Pooja went on to become one of the top models in India. She walked the ramp for over 250 fashion shows in India and overseas. Apart from Bollywood, Pooja has also acted in a couple of South Indian films, including three Malayalam films and two Tamil films, including a cameo in the 1995 film Aasai.
Not many know that Pooja is an Economics graduate and holds an MBA in marketing. She was the first Indian face to be the spokesperson for Head and Shoulders in India.
