When a father says, “You’ll always be daddy’s little princess” to his daughter, he means it! He does everything to protect his little one, and he is the only person she trusts, who can fight the odds for her to make sure she gets everything best. A father enjoys his daughter’s tea party more than his bachelor nights with beer. He happily switches the baby shark mode on from his One Direction mood. He lets his baby girl be artistic on him, apply nail paints, make his hairdos with a big smile on his face. Makes her a castle and watch her reign her kingdom being a queen. There is perhaps nothing in the world that a father would refuse his little girl for. And this reminds us of the B-town daddy cool, Angad Bedi, who is cherishing every moment of and with his little princess, Mehr Dhupia Bedi’s life.

2018 marked to be a lot of firsts for Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi as they took their relationship to the next level and became each other’s forever in a Gurudwara wedding in Delhi. The same year as husband and wife, Angad and Neha got promoted to being parents to a baby girl, and since then, their life has been revolving around their daughter. Mehr Dhupia Bedi became the centre of Dhupia-Bedi clan’s universe and the doting parents make sure to balance their professional and parenthood life. And we couldn’t help but appreciate how wonderfully they are doing it!
Scroll through Angad Bedi’s Instagram profile and you’ll get a glimpse of how much he adores his little princess, Mehr Dhupia Bedi. Be it celebrating his baby girl’s monthly birthdays, being grateful to God for blessing them with ‘Mehr’ or getting down on his knees to tie his princess’ shoelaces, Angad and Mehr in frame reflects the pure relationship of a father and a daughter. A while back, Angad posted a Boomerang with his ‘attibaanoo’ and thanked his wife, Neha Dhupia for ‘all the wonderful things in life’. Angad captioned his post as “Our #attibaanoo @nehadhupia thank you not just for the boomerang but all wonderful things in life.. have a good day beautiful people of this world.”
Though Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi had kept their daughter, Mehr Dhupia Bedi, away from the media limelight and have always shared glimpses of their baby girl on social media platforms, it was his father, Bishan Singh Bedi, who had treated their fans with the first-ever pictures of his granddaughter. From sharing the first-ever picture of newborn Mehr from the hospital to delighting their fans with the one-year-old photo of his granddaughter on her first birthday, the elated grandfather proudly thanked God for blessing them with Mehr.

In an interview with Outlook India, when Angad Bedi was asked if it was a conscious decision to keep their daughter, Mehr Dhupia Bedi away from the limelight, he had retorted, "Very. I am not a big fan of seeing kids on social media. It is not important. I feel that what is happening today is taking away the innocence of the child. Maybe I am wrong with the way I think but then I think where is their innocence, they know everything. A child should be a child for as long as possible. They should explore so many other things. It is not a competition. Life is not about competition. I think beyond a point, parents put too much pressure on the kids. We like to keep Mehr's pictures little private because everyone's pictures start coming on social media and then there is so much pressure on the kids, the paps flash in their eyes and I am not comfortable with it. Their rate cards are made depending on how much their pictures work, I am not up for this. We don't want such kind of a projection for our daughter."
Life indeed changes when a couple embraces parenthood and in Angad Bedi and Neha Dhupia’s case, things weren’t different. In a conversation with Filmfare, when Angad was asked about how life changed after becoming a father, he had stated, “Neha changed my luck. Sometimes you are looking for something and you put it out there in the universe that you need a change and it just happened in my case. And then we had Mehr. I feel it has just been a very happy home since and Mehr brings so much joy and laughter and that translates in your relationships with people professionally and personally. When I step out of the house to work, I just count my blessings. I have always believed, to maintain a good professional life, you have to be in a good space personally.”
Crediting his wife, Neha Dhupia for everything and calling her ‘superwoman’, Angad Bedi had remarked, “I don’t know if you have seen but I have started to dress a lot better and the credit goes to my wife. She looks after me in a very loving and caring way. I try and reciprocate as much I can. I’m very peaceful in my head and calm in my energy because of her. She’s a protector and I like that about her. She multitasks by going to work, handle Mehr’s timetable and my timetable and as well handle the house. She’s literally a superwoman.” (Also Read: Raveena Tandon's Precious Gift For Grandson Rudra Is All About Nani Love For Him To Cherish Lifelong)
On the professional front, Angad Bedi will next be seen on the big screens in a Dharma Production film, Gunjan Saxena starring Janhvi Kapoor and Pankaj Tripathi.
In every husband-wife story, we have seen every joke to be poked at the wife. It is said that the wife dominates the life of a husband and their household. Well, to some extent it holds true because a woman simply knows how to balance out things and keep things together.Read More
