Biography of Kabir Bedi
Kabir Bedi in his forthcoming autobiography has written openly about the marriage of X-wife Protima Gupta and relationship with Parveen Babi.
A segment of this book of Kabir Bedi has been written about his unsuccessful marital life with his Odissi dancer wife, Protima Bedi. Kabir Bedi wrote, ‘Our open marriage was initially a good idea, but later I started feeling uneasy with it. The closeness between us was completely over. The love and care I needed was not there at all and I felt alone. Parveen Babi filled this emptiness. Parveen was a very beautiful, fair, actress with big eyes and long hair. When I met Parveen, by that time I knew Parveen as only Danny’s girlfriend. Danny was a very good looking actor who was 2 years younger than me and one year older than Parveen. In a short time Danny became one of the successful villains of Bollywood and was nominated for several Filmfare Awards. Parveen was also becoming successful and both lived together for 4 years. Parveen openly lived with Danny, smoked cigarettes and wore jeans, which created a bohemian image in India. But in reality she was a Conservative Gujarati girl. When the entire Juhu gang went to Osho and talked about ‘free sex’, Parveen wanted loyalty in sex. This was the reason why I fell in love with Parveen.
Kabir has further written that what was the reaction when he told Protima about the relationship with Parveen. Kabir writes, ‘When Protima arrived at home, I told her that I am going to Parveen in the night. Upon hearing me, Protima said that she has just come, so that I stay with her at least that night, but I refuse, saying that I want to be with Parveen every night, not only tonight. After this, Protima sat on the bed and started crying. Protima asked him to leave them alone and leave me. In this way our open marriage is over ‘.
