New Delhi: After Pooja Bedi's Twitter rant over her father Kabir's Bedi's fourth marriage with Parveen Dusanj shocked many, the latter has finally broken her silence on the issue.
In an interview with Mid-Day, Mrs Kabir Bedi when quizzed over the Pooja's public display of displeasure with the wedding, was quoted as saying: "Just for the record," Dusanj says, referring to Pooja's tweet which she later deleted, (Deleted the last tweet on my dad @iKabirBedi 4th marriage. Let's keep things positive. I Wish him the best !!!), "the rift between Pooja and Kabir has nothing to do with me. I am being made a scapegoat."
She added, “It was Kabir's 70th birthday on January 16. His son Adam [from his second wife, British-born fashion designer Susan Humphreys] and his wife Melissa came down from Los Angeles, his sisters were there and my whole family was down from London too. Since Kabir had asked me to marry him on bended knee at the Spanish Steps in Rome almost five years ago, and I had said yes then, we decided to make everyone happy, and take the plunge spontaneously. Though we didn't need to... We were happy just the way we were.”
“If one person wants to rain on my parade, I choose to ignore it. It's hurtful, of course, but I have been raised to be grateful for what I have, and that is helping me ignore this.”
Kabir Bedi tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Parveen on January 15, 2016, just a day before he turned 70. We do hope all's well that ends well!
