Veteran actor Kabir Bedi, who tied the knot with his longtime partner Parveen Dusanj on his 70th birthday, expressed disappointment at his daughter Pooja Bedi’s tweet on his wedding.
Parveen and Kabir Bedi have been together for more than a decade.
Kabir Bedi’s daughter Pooja was not happy with her father’s marriage to Parveen and she called her new stepmother a ‘wicked witch’. But later Pooja deleted the tweet and wished well to the newlyweds.
Pooja Bedi, who is the daughter of Kabir Bedi and his first wife Protima, had earlier tweeted: “Every fairy tale has a wicked witch or an evil step~mother! Mine just arrived! @iKabirBedi just married @parveendusanj.” (Read: Kabir Bedi marries partner Parveen Dusanj on his 70th birthday)

Kabir Bedi was married thrice before this wedding. He first got hitched to model-turned-Odissi dancer, with whom he had two children Pooja and Siddharth.
He later married British-born fashion designer Susan Humphreys and the couple had one son Adam, who made his Bollywood debut with the thriller “Hello? Kaun Hai!”.
Bedi divorced Humphreys too and he tied the knot with TV and radio presenter Nikki Bedi. They had no children and divorced in 2005. (With PTI inputs)
