Neha Dhupia got hitched with actor Angad Bedi in a quick and private affair and the couple are happy parents to their baby girl, Mehr. However, despite being married to Angad for over a year, the Chup Chup Ke actress said she is confused if she should fast for Karva Chauth or not.
While the festival holds a lot of significance in the Punjabi culture, this will be Neha’s first Karva Chauth. Speaking about her dilemma to TOI, Neha revealed, “I was discussing with Angad (Bedi, her husband) whether or not I should fast on Karva Chauth, because the festival has a lot of significance in Punjabi culture. I have grown up watching my mum do it for my dad.”
Neha further added that when she asked Angad what would he like her to do, the Soorma actor seemingly increasing her confusion. Neha quips, “Whenever I ask Angad, he says, ‘Don’t keep it, it’s okay’. I ask him, ‘Are you sure?’ He is like ‘Yeah!’ Then as I am about to leave, he says, ‘Waise rakhna hai toh rakh lo’, and then I am back to square one (laughs).”
This festive season is certainly all the more special for Neha as she also celebrates her first Diwali as a mother. Speaking about the same, Neha said, “I am very excited this Diwali because it will be my first as a mother. I have many things planned for Mehr. I have got a nice traditional outfit for her. I’m sure she will look adorable in it. We also plan to let her play with lights and perform puja at home, which she calls ‘Jai Jai’ (laughs). She is too young to have sweets or even walk, so we will just give her a little meetha to taste. We will not be bursting any crackers, of course.”
On the professional front, the second innings of Neha’s career with No Filter Neha and Vogue BFF’s and films like Tumhaari Sulu to her credit is certainly inspiring!
