Actor Mandira Bedi lost her husband Raj Kaushal on Wednesday morning. Raj was a filmmaker and a producer and aged 49 when he suffered a heart attack and passed away at his residence in Mumbai. In the pictures from his funeral, Mandira was seen paying her last respect and carrying the bier outside her house.
Traditionally, a woman is not expected to touch the bier or carry it to the crematorium. Mandira, who is always known for creating her own rules, broke that stereotype as she carried her husband’s bier and tried to bid him goodbye in her own way. She seemed inconsolable and yet strong enough to find her way to be near her husband in his journey to the heavenly abode.
