Pooja Bedi is on cloud nine as she is engaged to her boyfriend Maneck Contractor. According to reports the couple is planning to tie the knot this year. In an interview with a leading daily, the actress opened up about her relationship and said, “I’m engaged. The love of my life proposed to me in a hot air balloon, hundreds of feet high up in the sky!!!! As he slipped an exquisite ring onto my fingers, my eyes filled with tears.”
“The beauty of our relationship is that it has been effortless in every way. Our families have merged beautifully. He has a wonderful open-hearted, jovial, Parsi family, who welcomed me. My kids, too, adore him. He is extraordinarily kind and cooks up a storm in the kitchen, which is an incredibly sexy quality,” she added.

The wedding will take place once she knows about her daughter Aalia Furniturewalla’s shooting dates and the schedule of her son Omar Furniturewalla’s college holidays.
Maneck and Pooja know each other since their school days, but they got reconnected again last year when Pooja went to Goa to review one of his ventures.
Pooja was earlier married to Farhan Ebrahim Furniturewalla in 1990 but their marriage went through rough phase and they ended it in 2003. “I have had relationships in between and my kids have liked every person that I have been with. But it is very different with Maneck — they adore him and want him in our lives forever, which is a wonderful feeling as a single parent. They are happy that I am settling down finally.”
