It’s the synergy and the energy. There’s a right spark in her eyes, they keep the spirit alive.”
- While talking about Maneck in an interview, Pooja said,
There’s incredible comfort and similarity with him. There’s effortless mingling in each other’s lives. He is a wonderful human being. I’ve been in multiple relationships in the past, so I’ve learnt what is important and what is not. With Maneck, I can’t find one thing about him…his personality and his way of being, that I feel is not in synergy with the way I feel, and I would not like to be a part of my life. He is a very decent and honest man… just like how Parsi’s are. It’s so wonderful to meet and get to know him.”
- During an interview, while sharing the details about Maneck’s relationship with her kids, Bedi said,
They get along fabulously. He is such a person who can get along with anyone. He cooks very well. Just the other day he cooked a bowl of hummus for Aliyah. She went crazy about it.”
- In 2021, when there was a sudden surge in the COVID- 19 cases in the entire world, Maneck was enjoying a holiday in Goa with his fiancée, Pooja. Bedi shared a video on her social media accounts in which the couple was seen speed-boating without a face mask. Pooja described the videos as “joys of being in Goa.” However, her video didn’t go down well with the netizens and they slammed the couple for their act. News18
