Ex Bigg Boss contestant and actress Pooja Bedi is currently in the headlines due to her personal life. If reports are to be believed, the 47 years actress is reportedly dating businessman Maneck Contractor.
Yes, while speaking to tellychakkar.com, Pooja confirmed the news and revealed their love story. Pooja said Maneck was her senior in school. They apparently reconnected on the alumni WhatsApp group where Maneck had spoken about opening his new restaurant in Goa.
“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.” Pooja shares.
The lovebirds have been in a relationship for almost four months now. She further revealed, “It’s not a traditional role based relationship. My life feels incredible, balanced and content. I’m really enjoying my time with him. 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 Parsis are. It’s so wonderful to meet and get to know him.”
Pooja, who has two kids – 20 years old Aliyah and 18 years old Omar, has already introduced her guy to her kids. “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.”
While speaking about his relationship with Pooja, Maneck said, “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.”
Pooja was earlier married to Farhan Furniturewalla, but they got divorced after spending 12 years together. Pooja and Farhan have two kids, daughter Aalia Furniturewalla and son Omar Ebrahim. Later, she has been linked to Akashdeep Saigal, Aditya Pancholi and Hanif Hilal in the past.
