The Quint caught up with Pooja and spoke to her about being a single mother at a young age, the challenges she faced and more. "I left my marriage with absolutely nothing," says Pooja who raised two kids as a single mom without a 'support system' when she got divorced.


Pooja Bedi and ex-husband Farhan Furniturewalla got divorced in 2003 and have two children - Alaya and Omar. "The challenge was in being really good friends with their father," says Pooja as she and Farhan co-parent and adds that it requires 'patience.'

While Pooja is currently engaged to Maneck Contractor and lives in Goa, Farhan is married to her ‘childhood friend’, Laila Furniturewalla.
