It won many awards and made advertising history. It was great to have been a trailblazer because of it. ” She also added how she is glad that times have changed and the audience is broad-minded nowadays. She said, “Thank heavens that people today are so open about their sexuality,”
Pooja Bedi said that her perception was shaped by her upbringing. She said, “To love deeply, to question limiting conventions, to stand up for what is right, to empower and fight for the rights of others, and to always maintain a sense of humor, especially at myself have been some key highlights.”
