Kabir Bedi tied the knot with Parveen Dusanj on Friday but it seems his family is not happy with the decision. His daughter Pooja Bedi, who was not invited to the wedding, took to Twitter to share a mean tweet, “Every fairy tale has a wicked witch or an evil step-mother! Mine just arrived! @iKabirBedi just married @parveendusanj.”
Kabir Bedi (70) tied the knot with Parveen Dusanj (41) in an intimate ceremony in Alibaug, with their families and a few close friends in attendance. The couple has been together for the last 10 years.
Later, in a damage control bid, Pooja took to Twitter again, “Deleted the last tweet on my dad @iKabirBedi 4th marriage. Lets keep things positive. I Wish him the best !!!”

Pooja later confessed to a website, “My dad and I have had personal issues a couple years ago. They could have been sorted but they were seriously aggravated by the animosity between me and Parveen. I wasn’t invited to the wedding.”
Talking about her tweets, she said, “It hurts to not have been a part of such a momentous occasion in my dad’s life. But I love my dad and I wish him the very best. That (the tweet) was me attempting humour through the pain but later I decided to keep things positive.”
This is Kabir’s third marriage after he divorced Odissi dancer Protima, mother of Pooja. He married fashion designer Susan Humphreys before marrying radio and television presenter Nikki Bedi in the late 1990s whom he later divorced.
