Maneck Contractor with whom she got engaged on 14th February this year swept her off her feet by taking her on a hot air balloon ride and proposing to her.
Talking about how they met, Pooja revealed he was three year senior to her in boarding school and both have common friends. “Last year, he announced a new venture in Goa on a chat group and I went there to review it. That’s how we reconnected.” She said.
“I got divorced on February 14, 2003 and got engaged on February 14, 2019. I have had relationships in between and my kids have liked everyone I have been with. But it is very different with Maneck – they want him to be in our lives forever. Our families have merged beautifully. He has a wonderful open-hearted, jovial Parsi family, who welcomed me.” She further told Bombay Times.
