There’s apparently a raging battle going on in the Bedi clan. According to the ‘breaking news’ last week, Pooja Bedi has thrown out her father from the Juhu beach house she owned and then sold the house for good measure. Now there is some frantic finger pointing going on as ‘friends’ get into the act to blame or defend — depending on which side they are.
Your diarist can tell you that Kabir Bedi and his girl friend Parveen Dusanj shifted into a new home last December in rather amicable circumstances so that Pooja could sell the house — which she did more than eight months ago. In fact, she even subsequently invested the money in a property in Goa, which has been frequently visiting. While there have been differences between Pooja and Kabir over some issues, the violent twist to the tale which appeared in the press almost a year later when Kabir is abroad does raise suspicions. After the initial shock, it’s now becoming apparent to the family that there might be some mischief involved.
Your diarist has learnt that besides Kabir and Pooja, several of their friends are now also seeing the hand of a particular SoBo socialite who just loves to be in the public eye. What we hear is that the ‘leak’ could have been a convenient ‘barter’ for favourable publicity. While the said socialite has been at loggerheads with several well known names in the swish set, she’s best known for her battle royale with a well known image consultant. With the game now out and Kabir on his way back soon, there should be intersting developments ahead. Watch this space.
