"we started dating and one day decided to marry"
Neha Dhupia has revealed that she was dating someone when her husband Angad Bedi proposed to her.
After getting married, she received criticism from people.
The actress revealed that before getting married, she and Angad were friends. She admitted that she did not think he would propose to her.
Neha explained: “Before marriage, we both looked at each other as friends and I had absolutely no hope that he would propose to me in such a comfortable way.”
One day, Angad went to Neha’s house and asked her parents for permission to marry her.
Her parents said that if he successfully persuaded her, they would support him.
Meanwhile, all this happened while Neha was dating someone else.
At the time, Neha introduced Angad to her boyfriend. The boyfriend was very kind to her, but he was reportedly not very clear about his love for her.
Neha revealed that Karan Johar had introduced her to Angad. He explained to her that she loved Angad but just did not recognise it.
She said: “After this, we started dating and one day decided to marry suddenly.”
In May 2018, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi surprised everyone by announcing that they secretly got married.
Neha caused further surprise when she revealed that she was several months pregnant. She gave birth in November 2018.
However, the marriage and pregnancy led to comments being made.
Neha Dhupia revealed that people criticised the marriage, including the fact that they were in a relationship before getting married and getting pregnant before marriage.
On the remarks, Neha asked:
“People date for a while before getting married normally, right?”
Neha admitted that she never thought she would marry Angad but they did in a private ceremony.
Although she was criticised, she stated that society is changing as more people are getting married after being in a relationship for a while.
She also said that more people are having private weddings.
Despite this, in India, it is criticised, with many questioning the woman’s character.
Neha said that more private weddings are taking place so that responsibilities are avoided. Not only are they cheaper, but they are also easier to arrange.
It is also due to the Covid-19 pandemic, where large gatherings are prohibited.
Neha opened up on the criticism she received after marriage, but she also said that after becoming an actress, people criticised her for making a name for herself.
