Mandira, who has been keeping away from social media for a while, shared a few photographs on Instagram last week where she can be seen happily posing with glasses of red and white wine with her husband Raj Kaushal, both of them smiling at the camera.
The actress did not caption her photos but only used a heartbroken emoji instead.
Mandira’s husband, filmmaker Raj Kaushal reportedly succumbed to a heart attack on June 30. Friends, followers and industry colleagues mourned his untimely demise on social media and expressed condolences.
Meanwhile, Mandira has also been a victim of trolling and hatred on social media after photographs surfaced showing her breaking stereotypes by performing her husband’s last rites, which male members of a family are traditionally expected to perform.
While the actress did not react to the abusive trolling on social media, her friends from the industry came in support of her.
For the unversed, Raj Kaushal, known for directing movies like “Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi” and “Shaadi Ka Laddoo”. He is survived by his wife Mandira Bedi and their two children, son Vir and daughter Tara. A prayer meet was held at Mandira’s residence on Saturday, which was attended by her parents and several colleagues from the entertainment industry, including actress Mouni Roy.
Raj and Mandira got married in the year 1999 and were blessed with a son Vir on June 17, 2011. They decided to adopt Tara, who is just four years old, in July last year.
