Yesteryear model and actress Pooja Bedi got engaged to boyfriend Maneck Contractor recently 15 years after separating from her first husband.
Pooja talked about her second marriage and love story to a national daily and said, “Maneck and I have known each other since our boarding-school days. He was three years my senior. Though we weren’t that familiar with each other back then, we’ve always had common friends. Last year, he posted about his new venture in Goa on a chat group, and I went there to review it. That was how we reconnected.”
Pooja has took almost 15 years to find the one for herself once again. Speaking about the same, she said, “I got divorced on February 14, 2003 and got engaged on February 14, 2019. I have had relationships in between and my kids have liked every person that I have been with. But it is very different with Maneck — they adore him and want him in our lives forever, which is a wonderful feeling as a single parent.”
Pooja was married to Farhan Furniturewalla and have two kids -Aalia Furniturewalla, Omar Ebrahim and Aalia is gearing up for her Bollywood debut.
Pooja is the daughter of actor Kabir Bedi and artiste late Protima Bedi.
