Family Picture

Aloka Bedi is a former indian actress known for being the wife of famous bollywood villain Ranjeet aka Gopal Bedi. Her real name is Nazneen but she changed it to Aloka after her marriage with Ranjeet.
Her father, Harbans Singh Pala Singh Saundh was a film financier.
She has also used screen names Alokha Soundh & Aloka Singh.
She is often mistaken with Mumtaz's niece and actress Nazneen Merchant, who is known for playing the role of Kunti in the B.R. Chopra's Mahabharat.
Aloka was all set to debut with V.Shantaram's 'Khajuraho Ke Sapne' in 1981 but the movie was shelved.
Aloka made her acting debut in Raja Aur Rana (1984) opposite Puneet Issar and later starred in Keshu Ramsay's Haveli (1985) & Dak Bangla (1987).
Ranjeet had selected Aloka as a leading lady in his directorial debut Kaaranama (1990) and this brought them closer and they fell in love. The film was delayed and her role was eventually done by Kimi Katkar. Ranjeet revealed about this in an interview,
"How I met her was that I was going to cast her in my film, but my parents liked her. she was modern yet homely, could speak English as well as Punjabi. what else could I want. My younger brother and sister were married and my parents were really keen on me settling down. Par un dino ke Ranjeet ko kaun apni beti deta (Who'd have married their daughter to the then Ranjeet). Luckily, my in-laws did; I insisted on an intimate wedding with only immediate family present."

However, some of Nazneen's relatives were livid when they found out that she had been married to Ranjeet and even suggested to her mother that they should have poisoned or drowned her daughter than letting her marry Ranjeet.
"Later, one of my wife's relatives was livid when she found out she had been married to me. They told my mother-in-law that she should've instead poisoned or drowned her daughter than letting her marry me. They tried to instigate them saying that they should check their daughter's body for marks of violence because surely I got drunk and beat her up every evening. My in-laws shot back that if anyone would get hit in the relationship, it would be Ranjeet," he added. 3
