Traditionally, a woman is not expected to touch the beer or the door to the crematorium. Mandira, who is always known for making her own rules, broke that stereotype by carrying her husband’s beer and trying to say goodbye to him in her own way. She seemed inconsolable and yet strong enough to find her way to be near her husband on his journey to the heavenly abode. Also Read – Mandira Bedi’s Husband Raj Kaushal Dies After Heart Attack
Mandira got the support of her friends as Ashish Chowdhry, Ronit Roy, Apoorva Agnihotri, Huma Qureshi and others lined up outside her house and tried to comfort her.
Mandira and Raj married in 1999, after which they welcomed their first child in 2011. The couple later adopted a daughter and named her Tara Bedi Kaushal. A day before his disappearance, Raj spent time with his friends, including Mouni Roy and others at their residence. Mandira and Mouni shared photos of their reunion on social media on Sunday.
It is a difficult time for the Bedi and Kaushal families. May he rest in peace!
