The 48-year-old put up a picture from their engagement ceremony. While confirming the news, Pooja shared, "I'm engaged. The love of my life proposed to me in a hot air balloon, hundreds of feet high up in the sky!!!! As he slipped an exquisite ring onto my fingers, my eyes filled with tears."
Pooja was married to Farhan Furniturewaala however, got divorced with him 16 years ago. Not hesitating to talk about her past relationships and the life lessons learnt, the actress wrote, "Each and every relationship that I've been in since has added so many dimensions and colour to my life. Most people look back at their past and are filled with regret or pain. I look back with so much gratitude, for good times shared and also, most importantly for teaching me what I don't want or will not accept. I grew up in times where the word "compromise" was integral to relationships and it was mainly women who bent and even broke just to hold onto their marriages. I always chose to want my life and relationships to be empowering to both individuals. I felt it so important to recognise that people enter each others' lives at various stages to add to their respective journeys."
"With every new relationship, I've always wondered if, "this is the one, and with the hope that it translates into the person I'm meant to sail away into the sunset with. When you finally meet that person, you don't hope it, you just simply know it," she further added.
We wish Maneck and Pooja a blissful journey ahead.
