While modern-day love is mostly about profile pictures and followers count on social media, gone are the days when ‘love at first sight’ was not denoted as creepy! In a world of commitment-phobic people, finding ‘the one’ with whom you would find that eternity is too less a time, is an uphill task. All thanks to our favourite Bollywood celebs, who have rejuvenated our faith in love and relationships and the very mention of the same reminds us of the ‘why so gorgeous?’ Neha Dhupia and her dapper hubby, Angad Bedi.

When the whole world was busy with Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding, a post by Karan Johar and later, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi’s profile had taken the internet by a storm. Clad in a pink lehenga and he donning a white bandhgala with a complementing pink turban, Neha and Angad had looked like a match made straight in heaven as they had looked super-happy with one another, sitting for their Anand Karaj ceremony. Both had posted two heart-warming pictures from their wedding, with captions such as “Best decision of my life... today, I married my best friend. Hello there, husband! @angadbedi” and “Best friend... now Wife!!! Well hello there, Mrs BEDI!!! @nehadhupia”, had swept us off our feet!
From birthday wishes, anniversary wishes to teasing pictures of their 9-month-old daughter, Mehr Dhupia Bedi, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi’s social media game is just on point! Neha, Angad and Mehr are currently vacationing at the Maldives and often keep on posting enviable pictures from their vacay. Today, Neha turns 39 and her hubby, Angad posted a set of two pictures from the same and wrote a heartfelt wish for her. The same could be read as “Happy birthday to you my beloved. I thank the almighty every day for bringing you into my life. You are my happy place. Waheguru mehr kare!!! I asked for one but I got two of you... Mehr is your reflection and hope she grows up to be like you. Have the best year ever. I love you. @nehadhupia @centaragrandmaldives.” To which, Neha replied, “Thank you my love... I asked for 1 and I got 100 in you @angadbedi.”
Angad Bedi had turned 36 on February 09, 2019, and his wifey, Neha Dhupia too, had left no stones unturned to make this day, super-special for him. She had posted a lovey-dovey picture with him and had captioned it as “#happybirthday my forever love." We were equally mesmerised with Angad’s reply to Neha’s post, which read, "Thank you for being there always, now and forever. Here is to new beginnings my first as a husband and father @nehadhupia."
Speaking on the similar lines of birthdays, Mehr Dhupia Bedi was born to Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi on November 18, 2019. On her birth date that comes every month, Neha always makes it a point to share a partial glimpse of Mehr with a beautiful wish until her first birthday. Mehr had turned 9-months-old on August 18, 2019, and for the same, her star mommy had taken to Instagram and had posted a partial glimpse of baby Mehr, seated on a table, wearing a dungaree, with two fountain baby ponytails! The doting mommy had captioned the picture, “Fountainhead of Love #9months @mehrdhupiabedi.” (Must Read: Hina Khan Celebrates Future Mother-In-Law And Rocky Jaiswal's Mom's Birthday, Pens A Heartfelt Note)
Isn’t it amazing? Now let’s give you some details about Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi’s love story and courtship. In an interview with the Bombay Times, Angad shared the first time he saw Neha. He had stated, “When I used to play Under-19 cricket in Delhi, during a gym session, I spotted this girl in really tiny shorts. I was impressed with her running technique. I figured out that her name was Neha Dhupia and that she was preparing for the Miss India pageant. Then, many years later, we met in Mumbai and became friends. I was interested in her, but she said that she wanted to be just friends. We have both been in relationships with other people and there has never been a facade. When it comes to spending the rest of your life with someone, you should do it with a friend. It doesn’t matter if that person is illiterate, educated or earns `10 or `10 crore. Eventually, these things don’t matter.”
Do you know, Angad Bedi had proposed marriage to Neha Dhupia 4 years ago but she had turned him down? Neha had stated in the same interview, “Our friends knew that Angad had feelings for me, but it was one-sided, till I came around. He had proposed marriage to me four years ago, but I turned down his proposal at that time because I was in a relationship. He came back four years later and said that I had wasted four years of his life. He said, ‘I don’t want to be just in a relationship with you. Either you are my wife or nothing’. I always believe in one thing — the right time and place. In the past four years, I have seen a huge change in him. He has matured a lot. In the end, everything else goes flying out of the window and friendship is all that matters. I can promise you that we aren’t going to be a couple who will post a lot about ourselves on social media.”
Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi’s was a well-kept secret marriage. What made them keep their wedding a secret? Angad had shared, “Our intention was not to keep it a secret. We just wanted it to be a private affair. What happens is that the process of making up our minds, planning the wedding and inviting people is never-ending. When we went to Delhi, we didn’t think that we were going to get married. I went in my track pants and T-shirt along with one bag in my hand. We intended to stay overnight and come back.” (Also Read: Anupam Kher Shares Unseen Picture From His Wedding With Kirron Kher To Wish Her On 34th Anniversary)
Angad Bedi had also revealed, “On the way, we discussed how we were going to approach the topic of marriage with her parents. Neha still consults her parents before taking major decisions. I just told them that I wanted to marry their daughter. There was silence for a bit and then her father said that he didn’t have a problem, but that I should speak to my parents about it. I have a great equation with her mother and she was fine with it. When I spoke to my father, he said that if I thought I was ready to go ahead, he will support me. Like all mothers, my mom, too, had dreams of a grand wedding for me, but I wanted it to be an intimate affair between the two families. The decision to get married was taken overnight.”
Having said this, here’s wishing Neha Dhupia a very happy birthday!
