Mandira Bedi has become the epitome of women empowerment as despite being hit by the biggest roadblock of her life, the actress showed the bravest side of herself. She had performed her husband, Raj Kaushal’s last rites, breaking the gender stereotype. Mandira was seen giving a shoulder to her husband’s mortal remains and was seen carrying the earthen pot. It is going to be one month to her husband’s death and Mandira is ready to bounce back.
For the unversed, Mandira Bedi’s husband, Raj Kaushal had breathed his last on June 30, 2021. His friend, Sulaiman Merchant had recalled that Raj had informed Mandira of having a heart attack on the unfateful day around 4 am. However, before she could take him to the hospital, he had already left everyone.
It is going to be one month to Raj Kaushal’s death and Mandira Bedi has finally gathered the courage to restart her life. Taking to her IG handle, Mandira shared a picture of the note she has written for herself and captioned it as “Time to #beginagain. My #dailyaffirmation.” The note can be read as “I am worthy. I am capable. I am loved. I am strong…”
22 days after her husband, Raj Kaushal’s death, Mandira Bedi had shared a happy family picture on her IG handle. In the photo, Mandira could be seen posing with her parents and kids, Vir Kaushal and Tara Bedi Kaushal. While the family had a smile on their faces, Mandira’s eyes had narrated the story of her pain. She had captioned the picture as “Only Love. #Grateful for my #Family and all the love, support and kindness #gratitude #love #thanks.”
While Mandira maintains a strong stance, her heart is still in pain as she misses her late husband dearly. On July 14, 2021, expressing her grief, Mandira Bedi had shared a picture on her IG handle. In the picture, on a piece of paper, Mandira had written her late husband’s name, the one that she used to call him with, “Raji..” She had captioned it as “Miss you Raji..”, followed by a heartbroken emoticon.
Two weeks after Raj’s sudden death due to a heart attack, Mandira had culminated her journey with her later husband on her IG handle. She had shared a couple of pictures with him and had penned a heartbreaking note, which could be read as "25 years of knowing each other. 23 years of marriage.. through all the struggle.. through every crest and trough."
Six days after Raj Kaushal’s death, Mandira Bedi had deleted her Instagram profile picture and had instead added a black image. She had also shared pictures from her last anniversary celebration with her late husband, i.e., from their 20th anniversary. She had added a heartbroken emoticon in the caption.
