While all eyes were on Sonam Kapoor’s star-studded wedding to Anand Ahuja, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi quietly tied the knot on 10 May 2018 in a hush hush Anand Karaj ceremony and later informed the world, via social media. Neha revealed that Karan Johar was the only person in Mumbai who knew about her intention to get married.
Dhupia recently recorded the latest episode of her podcast with Angad Bedi, who made his first appearance on the show. "As of now, I don't intend to take a long break, but that may change once the baby's here," Neha Dhupia revealed about her impending maternity break to Mumbai Mirror.
Dhupia announced her pregnancy on Twitter on 24 August.
Sharing their love story with Humans of Bombay, Neha had said, “He tells me that he 1st saw me at the gym when I was 20 & told his friends, ‘I’m going to get to know her 1 day.’ When we moved to Bombay, we met at a mutual friend’s party–it was just us standing in the balcony. I saw a different side of him–beyond the jokes & wit, there was a sensitive man.”
