Behind the glamour on-screen, Bollywood stars have their fair share of challenges and struggles. One such actor was Kabir Bedi, who ruled the silver screen with his charming personality, baritone voice and handsome looks. His magnetic presence in films won the viewers’ hearts and became a global figure with his works. His personal life was never easy, filled with controversies and he lost his 26-year-old son to schizophrenia.

Kabir Bedi is one of the most prolific actors in the Bollywood industry whose work is recognised in the USA and European countries like Italy. He is known for his role as Emperor Shah Jahan in Taj Mahal: An Eternal Love Story. His name is also synonymous with his works in Hindi films like Khoon Bhari Maang, Nagin, Vishwasghaat, The Hero: Love Story of a Spy and Main Hoon Na to name a few. In European countries, he is famous for La tigre è ancora viva: Sandokan alla riscossa and the James Bond franchise’s Octopussy.

In 1971, Kabir Bedi starred in his debut film, Hulchul featuring debutant Zeenat Aman, Helen and Prem Chopra. He has acted in more than 60 films, but more than his acting chops, his personal life has often grabbed the limelight. The actor has been married four times and has three children- Pooja (actress), Siddharth (deceased) and Adam (model/actor).

Kabir Bedi was first married to Odissi dancer, Protima Bedi. They had a daughter Pooja Bedi, who is a newspaper columnist and former actress and a son, Siddharth Bedi, who was diagnosed with Schizophrenia and died by suicide at the age of 26. When his marriage began to disintegrate, he was reportedly in a relationship with Bollywood actress Parveen Babi. The duo never married. Later, he married British-born fashion designer Susan Humphreys. Their son, Adam Bedi is a model and actor. The couple divorced after a few years. In the 90s, he once again found love in TV and radio and presented Nikki Bedi, which again led to divorce. Finally, a day before his 70th birthday, he married British-born Parveen Dusanj in 2016.
