Angad Bedi was the latest guest on Neha Dhupia’s chat show No Filter Neha.

This week, Neha Dhupia’s audio show No Filter Neha had her husband Angad Bedi as the guest. From talking about his former relationships, his secret wedding to Neha and his friendship with Yuvraj Singh, the podcast had it all.

Starting the conversation, Neha addressed Angad as a ‘player’ and asked him to reveal the number of women he has ever dated. Quite hesitant initially, the Soorma actor finally replied with “75” as a reply. He also opened up about dating women older than him and said, “I never had a girlfriend for the longest time because when I was growing up, I grew up in a lot of discipline. I was a very shy boy and I’m still very shy. But slowly when I moved the base from Delhi to Mumbai, things changed and I made new friends. I was on a self-discovery mode. Beggars can’t be choosers, so you take what you get. In one situation there was a 10-year difference. The next was 3.5 years.”

Narrating the story of how and when he met Neha, Angad said, “I know her for twelve years now. I checked her out in China House and found her very attractive. When I came to Punjab and shot the Punjabi movie with her, that was the time I realised I want to be with her. So, I went to her mother and told her I want to marry her daughter. She being a lovely lady was always on my side. She knew her daughter is stupid and foolish to not like someone like me and is making a big mistake by not accepting me.”

Neha and Angad got married in a hush-hush ceremony in Delhi and as the couple puts it, the wedding was arranged in just four days. During their conversation, Neha asked the former cricketer and actor to narrate the story of how he convinced his parents and in-laws for the wedding.

“I’ve never tried to impress anybody in my life. I wear my heart on my sleeve, if I want to do something, I go ahead and do it. I think I learnt that from my dad. My in-laws were already convinced 4.5 years back, except for the wife. I don’t know why you took forever. It wasn’t hard to convince my parents either. Because of a lot of things. They really wanted me to settle down, start a family and raise children. And I realised by the way I was going, living in Bandra all by myself, that wasn’t going to happen very soon,” Angad narrated.

However, the secret marriage didn’t go down well with Angad’s dear friend and Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh. Angad said, “My best friend did post an Instagram post very recently on Friendship Day and I read that post. Yuvi’s quote was something like – just my take on people and who I thought were friends, after the experience, I would like to say I love my dogs more. Something like that, I just thought it was a bit immature. But he is entitled to his opinion so it’s fine. It was my fault and I say this very openly that I should’ve given him more time but then unfortunately for us the decision making was so sudden. He has his reasons to be upset. I really love him but if you want to say what our relationship is right now, yes, it’s not the same and I hope in due course it does get better because I miss him, he’s one person who has stood by me.”

Angad Bedi was last seen in Diljit Dosanjh starrer Soorna. The actor will soon be welcoming his first child with wife Neha Dhupia.
