The Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander girl who made an everlasting impression on the audience with her Marilyn Monroe pose in the red dress. She is Page 3 diva, who is in the limelight not only for her professional life but for her personal life as well. We are talking about Bigg Boss 5 contestant and the charismatic actress-dancer, Pooja Bedi.
Pooja, who is in her late 40s, has never kept her personal life under the wraps. She is quite open about her relationships and the men she fell for in her life. After falling in love with five men, Pooja has now found a new love in her life. Pooja Bedi is now dating Maneck Contractor, who is an alumnus of her school, The Lawrence School Sanawar. Maneck was three years ahead of Pooja’s batch, and despite many mutual friends, they never interacted much.
It was their alumni WhatsApp group that played the Cupid between them. Sharing how their conversation started, Pooja revealed to Telly Chakkar, “He is based in Goa and was opening a restaurant there. When he posted that on our group, I replied to him that I will surely visit his restaurant. I visited Goa last year. I’ve a home in Goa, which made it easier for me to stay over there longer.”
Introducing her fans to the love of her life, Maneck, Pooja remarked, “There’s incredible comfort and similarity with him. There’s effortless mingling in each other’s lives. He is a wonderful human being. I’ve been in multiple relationships in the past, so I’ve learnt what is important and what is not. With Maneck, I can’t find one thing about him…his personality and his way of being, that I feel is not in synergy with the way I feel, and I would not like to be a part of my life. He is a very decent and honest man… just like how Parsi’s are. It’s so wonderful to meet and get to know him.” (Also Read: On Rhea's 31st Birthday, Anil Kapoor Remembers The One Mistake That He Committed On Her Birth)
Pooja Bedi and Maneck Contractor are now in a steady relationship for over four months now. The Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander star stated, “It’s not a traditional role-based relationship. My life feels incredible, balanced and content. I’m really enjoying my time with him.” Pooja had tied the knot with Farhan Furniturewalla but got divorced after 12 years of togetherness. Pooja and Farhan have two kids, a daughter Aalia Furniturewalla (1997) and a son Omar Ebrahim (2000).
Pooja has already introduced Maneck to her kids. She said, “They get along fabulously. He is such a person who can get along with anyone. He cooks very well. Just the other day he cooked a bowl of hummus for Aliyah. She went crazy about it.” Pooja doesn’t wish to rush into things just for the sake of it and wants to go with the flow. Pooja retorted, “I’m just going with the flow.” (Also Read: 'Bandini' Fame Aasiya Kazi Adorably Wishes Actor-BF On Completing 2 Years Of Togetherness)
Goa-based Maneck is in Mumbai to know Pooja and her family better, and spend more time with them. He shared, “Our relationship is all about love and caring. Pooja is a generous, caring and grounded person. We never seem to get enough of each other. We are together 24 X 7.” On being asked, what quality of Pooja he loves the most, he quickly uttered, “It’s the synergy and the energy. There’s a right spark in her eyes, they keep the spirit alive.”
We wish Pooja and Maneck all the love and happiness in future.
