Kabir Bedi opens up about his relationship with late actress Parveen Babi; ‘She gave me enormous love’

Kabir Bedi and Parveen Babi dated in the 1970s even as the former was in an open marriage with Protima Bedi initially. In a recent interview, Kabir opened up about their relationship and why he thinks their relationship fell apart even as both of them wanted to stay together. Parveen Babi battled mental health issues throughout her life. In a recent interview with an entertainment portal, Kabir spoke about how her mental illness and his work commitments came at odds with each other. "Parveen was an extremely sensitive and intelligent woman. She had a great capacity to love. What happened with her was extremely tragic. She gave me enormous love, a sense of togetherness and yet the cloud of her deteriorating mental condition hung over us. The tragedy of her mental illness was unfolding when I was going through my greatest success in Europe, Sandokan. It was a difficult period for me. But at the same time, I thank her for the many things she gave me, including love," he said. Kabir played the lead role in Italian TV series Sandokan in 1976 and was away in Europe for the shoot around the same time when Parveen's mental health worsened. The actor also addressed how the three men Parveen Babi was romantically involved with--him, Danny Denzongpa, and Mahesh Bhatt--all attended her funeral in 2005. Talking about how all of them cared for her, Kabir said, "Well, we shared her life and she shared ours. At the heart of it, we deeply cared for her though we couldn’t prevent her breakdown. Parveen deserved that respect " Kabir Bedi wrote about his life--including his relationship with Parveen Babi--in his recently released memoirs Stories I Must Tell. He was last seen in the web series Thinkistaan and will be seen next in the upcoming Telugu film Shaakuntalam. Currently, he is participating in Grande Fratello VIP, the Italian version of reality show Big Brother.
