Kabir Bedi opens up about his relationship with Parveen Babi
Actor Kabir Bedi’s book, Stories I Must Tell: The Emotional Journey of an Actor will soon be available to all and in this book, the veteran star has written about his journey in Bollywood and also his highly-publicised personal relationships. In the book, the actor talks about how he was in an open marriage with famed Odissi dancer Protima Gupta and that did not make him happy. “Our open marriage may have seemed like a good idea at first. In the end, it only caused me greater anxiety. It had led to a lack of intimacy between us. I didn’t feel the love that I wanted, the caring and sharing I needed. Nor was I able to give it. The old magic had gone. I was feeling alone, empty and dejected,” reads an excerpt of his book which was published by a leading daily. He goes on to talk about his relationship with the iconic Parveen Babi who changed the face of India cinema with her choice of roles and her style.

“Parveen Babi filled that void. She was a ravishingly beautiful actress with fair skin, long black hair and dark, mesmerising eyes. Until then, I’d always thought of her as ‘the girlfriend of Danny Denzongpa’. He was a good-looking Sikkimese actor, two years younger than me, a year older than Parveen. In the years ahead, he would become a highly successful villain in Bollywood and be nominated for many Filmfare Awards. Parveen began her rapid rise to stardom during their four years together. Her living openly with Danny, wearing jeans and smoking in public, had given her a bohemian image in India. But, morally, she was a conservative Gujarati girl. While the rest of the Juhu gang talked about the ‘free sex’ preaching of Guru Osho, she believed in sexual fidelity. It’s what I was looking for when I fell in love with her,” he goes to write in the book.
