Mandira Bedi Instagram: Days after husband Raj Kaushal's death, actor-presenter Mandira Bedi took to Instagram Monday, remembering their moments spent together. The 49-year-old's profile photo on the app has also gone black in mourning for Kaushal.
Director of films like Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi and Anthony Kaun Hai? Kaushal passed away in the early hours of June 30 from a cardiac arrest. A funeral was held the same day in Mumbai, led by a grieving Bedi who partook in the final rites of her husband. More on that here.
In a tribute to Kaushal, Bedi shared a series of three photos of the couple together, captioning the post with a broken heart emoji.

Sportspersons Sains Nehwal and Harbhajan Singh added praying hands emojis, while stylist Adhuna Akhtar and actor Adah Sharma dropped hearts in the comments.
Mandira Bedi Instagram Goes Dark In Mourning
Kaushal and Bedi married in 1999 and became parents to son Vir and daughter Tara.
Following Bedi's meteoric rise after television show Shanti and 1995's blockbuster Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, she met Kaushal. At the time, Kaushal was reportedly working with director Mukul Anand. A love story blossomed as Bedi and Kaushal began dating and eventually tied the knot. They were married for 22 years.
Condolences for Kaushal poured in from the film and television industry after his demise on June 30. The funeral was attended by friends of the couple Ashish Chaudhary, Ronit Roy and others. A prayer meet was held for Kaushal on Saturday.
Massive support has grown online for Bedi who became the target of social media trolls following Kaushal's funeral, where she was pictured performing his final rites and was dressed in a simple tee and jeans. Colleagues Mini Mathur and Sona Mohapatra came to Bedi's defence. More here.
