Mandira Bedi gets candid about Marshal of the Indian Air Force and uncle Arjan Singh's romantic side
Indian actress, fashion designer, model and television presenter Mandira Bedi made a fresh revelation about the Marshal of Indian Air Force Arjan Singh.
“He was a great listener,” said actress Mandira Bedi, niece of Marshal of Indian Air Force (IAF) Arjan Singh, on Monday, while sharing her memories with the latter.
“My greatest memory of him was that he's a great listener; he used to listen. He had so many achievements, but he never spoke about anyone. Rather what he would do is he will be interested in your life. So, he asked me the smallest things about my work, my son, my family and more,” she told ANI, after the last rights ceremony of the Marshal of IAF, here at Brar Square.
Actor remembers meeting him, on her Delhi visits. She was quoted saying by HT: "Every time I used to come down to Delhi for more than a day, I always used to visit him. Even at the age of 98, he was such a great conversationalist, he spoke so well, so correct and coherent. He defied age in every way. If one looks back at his life, he has lived such a full life, so distinguished and respectable. I feel privileged that I am a part of his family."
Mandira reached Delhi, early morning on Sunday. While recalling the tales from the past Mandira said, “My masi and him shared the most beautiful and loving relationship. Not a day would go by, without them saying ‘I love you’ to each other.”
Mandira, who reached Delhi, early morning on Sunday, further stated, “He lived a very beautiful and distinguished life. The farewell that he got, the way the Air Force took it over, shows how well loved, admired and respected he always was, and rather he is. One looks back at the life so well lived...yes it is a loss.”
She also took to Twitter on September 16 to share her grief and posted, “Marshall of the Air Force, #ArjanSingh , my uncle, passed away this evening. A true officer and a gentleman. Will miss him dearly. #RIP"
