Actress Pooja Bedi recently made headlines after she opened up about her divorce, single parenting her kids Alaya and Omar.
In a recent interview, Pooja was asked about her daughter Alaya’s dating life and her rumoured affair with Balasaheb Thackeray's Grandson Aaishvary Thackeray.
Neither did Pooja confirm or deny the rumours and dodged the question with a clever response. She told Times of India:
"In my time, things were so different! You had to be boyfriend-free, a virgin, and unmarried. Today, every single human is entitled to have a personal life.”
The 50 year old actress also went on to give Kareena Kapoor Khan’s example as to how things have changed in the acting business. She added,
“Kareena Kapoor Khan is doing well even after marriage. So, I would say, there's been a sea change in the industry and it has happened because the mentality of the audience has changed dramatically, thanks to social media."
Previously, Alaya had denied dating Aaishvary and stated that they were just friends. "He is a very good friend. I know it is a cliche thing to say, but we are very good family friends. Our moms know each other, my grandad knows his mom, we have known each other for a very long time. It’s just now that the media notices a photo of us together and assumes that something is going on. We have been doing acting classes for a very long time, and also go to dance classes together; if the paparazzi had clicked us earlier, they would have a lot more pictures. That’s why we are bound to click together; I find him to be quite funny," she had told the leading daily.
Alaya’s dating rumours with Aaishvary sparked after the Thackeray grandson was snapped at Jawaani Jaaneman’s screening in January, last year. Back in October last year, they also celebrated Aaishvary’s birthday together in Dubai.
