Pooja Ghai Bares It All: Why She Couldn't Patch-Up With Her First Husband And Got Married Again- EXCLUSIVE
Your second marriage (with Nowshir Engineer) news took everyone by surprise
(Laughs) Well, I was putting a lot about Nowshir on my social media acccounts. Actually sab itna jaldi mein ho gaya ki poocho hi mat.

Why so?
Mom has been keeping very unwell. She has been detected with brain cancer, now her right side has got paralysed. Recently, I even took her to Delhi to meet all her relatives.

Is she in hospital now?
No, she's at home. Doctors say they can't do too much, now. Thankfully, I have a staff of five people who are looking after her adequately.

Extremely sorry to learn this, so that's the reason why you married in hurry?
Yes, I was dating Nowshir since sometime and it was just on June 4 that my son Raaj said that we should get married. You can say he put forth the proposal on Nowshir's behalf. Nowshir and Raaj are very good friends.


How old is your son now?
18. He wants to become an actor. He is currently working as an Asst. Director in one of the upcoming Bollywood film.

Interesting. Go on
Raj could not see me in that state when my (first) marriage with Neeraj (Rawal) hit a rough patch.

But I remember Neeraj and you had got back together. I had visited you when you both announced your reconciliation amidst fanfare
Yeah, but it didn't work out. We hit a rough patch for the second time, which was actually when Raaj said, "Mom, can you just move away from this relationship? It isn't worth it anymore."  That happened in 2015-16.

What went so wrong?
I don't want to b*&#h.


Phir bhi?
Different people, different mindsets. Neraj and I just could not converge. We tried very hard, though. Nahin hua and we said let's end it. We decided to end it forever, which means a legal separation, as by then Raaj too wasn't a kid any longer and had started to understand things.

Any aggression, domestic violence?
Nope, not at all.

Are you in touch with Neeraj now?
Well, he is Raaj's father and hence yes. But we aren't the best of friends.

Were you wary of heading to the altar the second time?
Yes, but my son was sure I should get married. Today, I am sure that I took the right decision.

So, the marriage with Nowshir happened on July 7?
No, it happened on 7th. I posted the pictures late and the media thought that it was 9th. By the way, Nowshir had to leave for dubai the same night.


Huh?
We have our businesses there, which we started sometime after demonetisation happened. I am into wedding-planning and run it by the name of Tranquil Weddings. Nowshir is also into events but a different segment of it. He had to rush back to Dubai for work as I had called him for just a day, to get married.

Elaborate...
Mom's health has suddenly slipped since the last 3 weeks. I wanted her to see the marriage. I didn't have to do much, as I am a wedding planner myself and have a fleet of people who managed it in 24 hours. I will now shuttle between Mumbai and Dubai. Meanwhile, Raj is likely to go and do a film course in New York Academy.

Why did u settle your business in Dubai?
It's lovely out there and essentially because after whatever happened between Neeraj and me, I wanted to shift abroad. I couldn't stay here.

You dated Nowshir after divorce?
Of course. I knew him since a long time but we started dating only about a year-and-half ago. And as I said, I am sure that I have taken the right decision.

Raaj stays with you or with Neeraj?
With me.
