For the unversed, Pooja was previously married to Farhan Furniturewala from 1994 – 2003. Ever since their divorce, she has been a single mother to both of them. Pooja says that her past relationships did not make her cynical about marriage.
Pooja told the portal, “Experiences in life are supposed to make you better, not bitter. If one marriage doesn’t work out, it’s not necessary that the second one won’t. My dad (Kabir Bedi) has been married four times. He has married some wonderful women, we have had wonderful step-moms and his relationships and marriages have taken him from strength to strength.”
