Kabir Bedi married Parveen Dusanj on Friday in a secret ceremony in Alibaug among close family and friends. Kabir celebrated his 70th birthday the next day and Parveen is 41 years old. The couple has been together for 10 years! So sweet :) Interestingly, the people who attended the wedding were whisked off to Alibaug on pretext of a “pre-birthday bash.” Yup, it was a surprise for all the guests! So Kabir’s birthday celebration on Saturday night doubled up as a grand reception.
Parveen and I have been together for more than 10 years. The timing of the marriage at this time was really Parveen’s decision. I had proposed to her on Rome’s historic Spanish Steps six years ago on a bended knee. She agreed, but kept me in suspense as to when [we would tie the knot]. As friends and family were flying in from all over the world for my birthday, Parveen felt this was the best time to get married. So it all happened very suddenly. We had a magically beautiful intimate ceremony in Alibaug. Only members of both families, and a few close friends were present. It was held amid palms, on the lawns of a beautiful beach-front home that belongs to Dipak and Sohni Tanna, who is my niece. It was a traditional ceremony preceded by blessings at the gurdwara
We kept it a secret, and planned to make a surprise announcement on Kabir’s birthday, where all friends and loved ones were gathering. Keeping it a secret added to the fun. Friends who came to Alibaug thought they were coming for a pre-birthday dinner. It’s been several days of joyous celebrations and partying. These are very happy days for us!
