Actor Karan Mehra, who became a household name playing the character of Naitik in the show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai was arrested on Monday night. The actor was taken into custody by Mumbai Police after his wife Nisha Rawal filed a complaint of domestic violence against him at the Goregaon Police station. Karan, who was released on bail on Tuesday claimed that he is being framed by Nisha and her brother, Rohit Sethiya. Mehra revealed what happened during the fight with his wife.
According to a report in the Hindustan Times, Karan revealed that there were marital problems between Nisha and him for a while. He shared that it was in March that they decided to go separate ways. Sharing details about May 31, Karan mentioned Nisha and he was talking about finance and how they would distribute things. The actor said they disagreed on certain points and mentioned that Rawal wanted more than what he could give. Mehra said, “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.”
The YRKKH actor shared that after the heated discussion, Rawal and her brother Rohit Sethia headed out and returned later at night. He also mentioned that Sethia told him he would take the actor to court if he does not agree. Karan continued, “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’.”
Karan Mehra said his wife Nisha has “mood swings and violent anger streak” and would throw stuff and hit herself and others. He stated, “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 Mehta continued, “I have been disrespected and now to use the bechari girl card is unbelievable.” The actor explained that today he is not in a position to give Nisha what she wants. He said that everyone is aware of what he has done for her. Mehra continued, “Jab lavish life thi, tum enjoy karte the, aaj bura time hai, we have to cope, toh you want to separate. I agreed to separation but to take everything, is not done. Karan ko sadak pe lao aur hume saare paise mile, yeh plan hai. If I give her all what I earn, what will I survive on.” Also Read: Karan Mehra Granted Bail After Being Arrested For Domestic Violence Charges By Wife Nisha Rawal
