Stories I Must Tell The Emotional Life of an Actor
Octopussy (1983) actor Kabir Bedi, an international star and a man — like all men — with strengths and frailties, recently revealed what he's done during the time of being in lockdown due to the Corona epidemic... Writing his memoirs. The title and cover were just presented by megastar Salman Khan​ together with GQ India. Original photo by Terry O'Neill.

As Kabir Bedi bares his soul, the stories come tumbling out. That first magical encounter with The Beatles as a student in Delhi. The sudden move to Bombay, away from home, friends, and college. His exciting years in advertising, his extraordinarily successful career abroad and his many painful setbacks. His relationships with the irrepressible Protima Bedi and the dazzling Parveen Babi that changed the course of his life. Of the scars they left, and the trauma of three divorces, and how he finally found fulfilment. And why his beliefs have changed.

These are tumultuous stories set in Hollywood, Bollywood and Europe. The joys of blazing new trails abroad, and the dangers of them. Bedi also tells the fascinating love story of his Indian father, a philosopher in Europe, and his British-born mother, the world’s highest-ranked Buddhist nun. And most poignant of all, the battle to save his schizophrenic son.


Stories I Must Tell is the unusually candid and compelling memoir of a man who holds nothing back, in love or in storytelling. It is the story of a middle-class boy from Delhi whose career now spans the globe. Equally, it is the tale of how he survived the roller-coaster journey of the making, unmaking and remaking of him as a person.
