She wrote, “He has literally swept me off my feet… i accepted Maneck Contractor’s proposal whilst sailing in a hot air balloon. Wish all of you a lifetime of happiness & to always dream of a rainbow at the end of a storm”

Now the actress and single mother has spoken up about how her kids Alaya F & Omar encouraged her decision.
Pooja and Maneck are expecting to tie the knot soon. In a recent interview with SpotboyE, Pooja shared, “My children have really liked the men in my life and they have liked each one of them. For whatever reason, it hasn’t worked out, but I enjoyed the journey with them.”
Pooja Bedi also said how Alaya & Omar encouraged her to find and settle down with someone, just like her ex-husband Farhan Furniturewala has.
“Just before Maneck came into my life, Alaya and Omar were chatting about something and they said, ‘Mama, you should really get your life together.’ I said, ‘What?’ They said, ‘Yeah, look at papa. He has met Laila aunty and settled down with her. They have had a child together. He has got his life sorted. You should also get someone and just get married and settle down,’” she said.
Interestingly, Pooja Bedi was Maneck’s junior at The Lawrence School, Sanawar. Both of them reconnected years after on their alumni WhatsApp group. After being in a relationship for a year, Maneck finally proposed her.
Meanwhile, Pooja’s ex-husband Farhan Furniturewala is married to Laila Khan Furniturewala and both are blessed with a son named Zaan.
We wish happiness and love to everyone in the future.
