Actor Kabir Bedi is often seen playing as the antagonist in movies and TV shows. The actor who has been in the glamour and glitz world for more than four decades is all set to launch his memoir Stories I Must Tell: The Emotional Journey of an Actor; however, we recently got our hands on an excerpt from the book where he mentioned how he ended his open marriage with Protima Gupta that caused him 'greater anxiety' and how he broke his marriage just to be with actor Parveen Babi at that time.
Published by BollywoodHungama, an excerpt from the book read, "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. Parveen Babi filled that void. She was a ravishingly beautiful actress with fair skin, long black hair and dark, mesmerising eyes."
Speaking about Parveen, he adds, "Her living openly with Danny (Denzongpa), 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 also mentioned in details how he broke this news to his wife Protima who was completely shattered after hearing about his love for the Amar Akbar Anthony actor in the book.
