Bollywood actress Pooja Bedi, who has been engaged to Maneck Contractor since 2019, recently opened up about her relationship with him and revealed how he reacts to men trying to flirt with her.

Speaking to actor Samir Soni in a candid chat, Pooja said that if she would have met Maneck seven years ago, they would not have been together.

"He and I were such different people back then. We would not have gelled. We have come together at the right time, the right place for each other. And that’s brilliant. And I can see this being something that will actually go the distance because today, I am ready for that journey," she said.

Pooja also praised his inner confidence, for being secure about the fact that other men try to flirt with her.

Recalling an instance from when they first started dating, Pooja said, "In parties, men are always trying to be all flirtatious, come up with their body language a certain way, look at you and trying to charm you. I asked Maneck once if it bothers him and he said, 'The beautiful part is, you are with me because you love me. It is a compliment that men want you. And you want me. And that to me is the most important. It’s not about who wants you, it’s about who you want.' And that shows such inner strength and inner confidence, and self-love and self-respect."

Pooja reportedly connected with Maneck on their alumni WhatsApp group a few years ago. He was Pooja's senior.

Announcing her engagement in 2019, she had tweeted, "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 and to always dream of a rainbow at the end of a storm."

Apart from being a brilliant actress, Pooja has always been known for a lot of controversies. Daughter of Kabir Bedi and late Protima Bedi, two very open-minded people who used to lead a wild and bohemian lifestyle in their time, Pooja had been vocal about various issues and has often broken stereotypes.

In fact, she has also been lauded for being a single mom and a woman looking for love in her late 40s.
