Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata star Karan Mehra who became fan favourite for playing Naitik’s character in the show, was arrested last night after his wife Nisha Rawal filed a complaint against him, currently the actor is out on bail and opened up about exactly what happened before his arrest.
Talking to a news portal, Karan revealed, “We were going through a strain in our married life and were trying to figure a way out. In the last few days, we came to a point where were decided to mutually separate and do our best for our child. On May 31, we were talking about finance and how we would distribute things and we disagreed on certain points. She wanted more than what I could give. I told her, ‘What you want, I can’t give and what you want, can’t be given’. I explained to her that the pandemic is still here, and who knows what happens tomorrow and I would want to give my son the best.”
Later Karan shared that Nisha and her brother Rohit Sethia demanded a huge ransom, which he did not agree to give. Rohir told him that if he didn’t agree, they would go to court.
Karan added, “They can’t hold me ransom, so I told them to go ahead. Later, Nisha barged into my bedroom, as we have been sleeping in separate bedrooms since a while. She began shouting and abusing my family, told me, ‘I will ruin your life, spat on me and I calmly told her not to behave in this manner and to go back to her bedroom. I didn’t want to talk right then. I got up to go into the bathroom when she suddenly banged her head on the wall and said, ‘ab dekho kya hota’. Actually, Nisha has mood swings and violent anger streak. She would throw stuff and hit herself and others. Five-six years ago, she was diagnosed as bipolar. People, including our friends and relatives have seen her behaviour in public and I couldn’t take it anymore.”
Karan also claimed that they have installed security cameras inside their home as they have lot of staff, however, Nisha had purposely switched off the cameras before she banged her head, “There was no proof of what she did. And they suddenly took out their phone cameras to record what happened. It felt like a plot against. They called the cops and so did I and even the cops understood what the truth was. I am not a violent person and I told Nisha to swear on our son that I did that but she didn’t.”
Karan is currently residing at his friends place and later he’ll move to his parents’ house, the actor is also in talks with his lawyers for the divorce.
