Kabir Bedi recalls the final days of Parveen Babi in her excerpt from his book titled Stories I Must Tell: The Emotional Journey of an Actor.

Kabir Bedi is excited about the release of his new book titled Stories I Must Tell: The Emotional Journey of an Actor. Bedi has written the work to tell the stories of his relationship with late actor Praveen Babi and even about his own career in the Hindi film industry. Kabir who was married to Praveen has written extensively about her mental health issues and her final days.

 
In an excerpt from his book Praveen writes, “In my days alone, I looked back on all we had shared. I remembered our love and passion. I felt for her suffering mind. But my long-suppressed resentments flared as well. I rued the shadows Parveen had cast on my most joyful years. I reminded myself it wasn't her fault. Perhaps I was equally to blame. Maybe I should have walked away earlier. Yet I couldn't; she'd needed me desperately. I'd seen myself as her protector. By then, I was mentally and emotionally exhausted. I'd gone from one emotionally draining woman to another, without a pause in between, leaving me no time for myself. People may think 'what a lucky guy' for having one beautiful woman after another. Only I know the price I paid for being an impulsively emotional man.”
 
Kabir further adds, “In my days alone, I looked back on all we had shared. I remembered our love and passion. I felt for her suffering mind. But my long-suppressed resentments flared as well.
