Angad Bedi on marriage with Neha Dhupia: It’s a rosy phase, she asks me everyday what I want for dinner
It’s been a little more than three months since actors Angad Bedi and Neha Dhupia got married in a private ceremony. And the two are having the time of their life attending events together, going on holidays and making memories. In a candid chat, Angad talks about how he’s enjoying this new phase, how he deals with all the negativity that people spread on social media and more.
How has life changed post marriage?
It has been great. I want to come home to a partner and I really look forward to spending time with Neha. She has got a great sense of humour and makes me laugh all the time. We speak the same language, so we always have so much to share.
Are your conversations mostly centered around work and films?
No. In fact, we hardly talks about film industry; our conversations are mostly about food, travel, sports and of course, families. We have a chat group with my and her parents and in fact, my father ( former cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi) and Neha converse the most on it. They get along very well.+ +
What ‘s that one thing that you’re enjoying the most about this post-marriage phase?
It’s a rosy phase and she asks me everyday what I want to have for dinner. And I keep teasing her saying, “Yeh toh abhi naya naya hai. Wait for six months’. I wish you keep on asking me this for many years to come.” That’s the beauty of a relationship that you keep on working towards it.
Neha is a fairly established name in Bollywood. Does it ever make you insecure?
I feel very proud when I see her do so well. She has done some great work in cinema and made a name for her. She is an accomplished woman and I treasure it because she gives me a great perspective of life. She has kept her relationship with people intact. It’s easier said than done but to be a liked person by all is not easy. And Neha does it so effortlessly.
Soon after your wedding, trolls started ridiculing the fact that you are two years younger to Neha....
I don’t know who has made this rule that the girl has to be younger than the boy. People have to be compassionate and get along well. I don’t see that coming in way of anyone. That’s more important.
Neha’s pregnancy rumours soon became the talk of the town and you’ve always stood up for her. Are you both done with this social media bullying?
We feel if one has been given a platform to interact with others openly, it should not be misused. If you want to have a critical viewpoint, please put forward, that’s understandable. But if you want to pass nasty comments, I won’t take it as a husband. If you have nothing nice to say, then don’t say at all.
