Actress-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt says she can’t believe that her 27-year-old designer Isha Mantry is no more.

The 27-year-old fashion designer, who was originally from Mumbai, collapsed allegedly due to a drug overdose at an Electronic Dance Music festival at Candolim beach in Goa late Monday and subsequently died at a local hospital, the Congress alleged Tuesday.

Pooja Bhatt is in shock. “Isha Mantry I can’t believe you have left us so early. You with the dancing eyes & shy smile! Why my love? WHY?,” she tweeted Wednesday.

“What appalls me is the damn music did not stop at EDM even after Isha’s body was carried off the floor. Are we that blasé? That brain dead?,” she added.
