Pooja was previously married to Farhan Furniturewalla. They got divorced in 2003 and Aalia and Omar are her children with Farhan Furniturewalla.
“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. Our families have merged beautifully. He has a wonderful open-hearted, jovial, Parsi family, who welcomed me,” Pooja Bedi told Bombay Times.
“Each and every relationship that I’ve been in since has added so many dimensions and colour to my life. Most people look back at their past and are filled with regret or pain. I look back with so much gratitude, for good times shared and also, most importantly for teaching me what I don’t want or will not accept.
I grew up in times where the word compromise was integral to relationships and it was mainly women who bent and even broke just to hold onto their marriages. I always chose to want my life and relationships to be empowering to both individuals. I felt it so important to recognize that people enter each others’ lives at various stages to add to their respective journeys,” Pooja further revealed.
