‘I am happy he’s get­ting mar­ried’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Anee­sha Bedi ■ ht. city@ hin­dus­tan­times. com

Ac­tor Mon­ica Bedi, who made head­lines for her al­leged ro­man­tic in­volve­ment with un­der­world don Abu Salem (inset), says that she’s happy that Salem is get­ting mar­ried. “I am happy for him. Why would I have any­thing new to say? I have noth­ing to do with him and to each their own. It’s his call and that’s ab­so­lutely fine,” says the 40-year-old ac­tor.

Salem who is in jail, is ex­pected to marry a 26-year-old woman from Mum­bra in Thane dis­trict, Ma­ha­rash­tra. He met the girl on a train from Mum­bai to Lucknow last year, while be­ing taken for a court hear­ing. He ap­par­ently mar­ried the woman on the train in the pres­ence of wit­nesses, but is re­port­edly go­ing to marry her so­cially now, af­ter the girl asked him to “res­cue her from her defama­tion.”

Bedi, who is also known to have been

mar­ried to Salem, has how­ever claimed that she was in a live-in re­la­tion­ship with the 40-year-old gang­ster, and never mar­ried him. Bedi was ar­rested in Lis­bon, Por­tu­gal, along with Salem and ex­tra­dited to In­dia in 2005.

The ac­tor-model who is cur­rently busy read­ing a cou­ple of TV se­rial scripts, and has been seen in some TV re­al­ity shows, says that she’s happy with her life. “I am happy with all the love I get from my fans. While I would love to do films as well, I am happy fo­cus­ing on tele­vi­sion for now. There is very lit­tle dif­fer­ence be­tween the big screen and the small screen now,” she says.
