Pooja Bedi calls her new step-mom “wicked witch”


It was a merry occasion for veteran actor Kabir Bedi who married his long-time girlfriend Parveen Dusanj in an intimate ceremony on Friday, January 15. However, his daughter Pooja Bedi from his first marriage didn’t seem to be happy.

The 45-year-old actress-turned-columnist took to Twitter and called her new mom a “wicked witch”. "Every fairy tale has a wicked witch or an evil step-mother! Mine just arrived! @iKabirBedi just married @parveendusanj," Pooja who is known to speak her mind, commented.

However, she surprisingly deleted the tweet and clarified her actions in another tweet. “Deleted the last tweet on my dad @iKabirBedi 4th marriage. Let’s keep things positive. I Wish him the best !!!”

Pooja also did not attend her dad’s wedding. Speaking about giving a miss to her father’s marriage, the former actress said that she was not invited. “My dad and I have had personal issues a couple years ago. They could have been sorted but they were seriously aggravated by the animosity between me and Parveen. I wasn't invited to the wedding," she told a publication.

Kabir Bedi and British-born Parveen have been in a relationship for about nine years. Interestingly, Pooja, who was born of Kabir Bedi’s first marriahe with late Protima Bedi, is older that her new step-mom Parveen. Kabir Bedi was also married to British fashion designer Susan Humphreys and television presenter Nikki Bedi. All his three marriages ended in a divorce.
