Comedian Sidharth Sagar is back in news. After creating headlines for being abducted by his own mother, battling depression and then coming out of the lowest phase of his life to getting engaged to his girlfriend, Subuhi Joshi in November 2018- the comedian has now been accused of domestic violence.

That’s right! Subuhi Joshi has broken her engagement with Sidharth accusing him of physical abuse. A report in Bombay Times states, “Sidharth and Subuhi first met in 2014, after which they started dating. But the couple split in 2016, only to get back together last year. They started living in and even took their relationship to the next level by getting engaged, five months ago. However, events took an ugly turn soon after.

”Subuhi, who has been a part of TV shows like 'Comedy Classes', 'Bh Se Bhade' and 'Love Dosti Dua', alleges, “When we separated in 2016, he blamed his mother for it. However, she wasn’t entirely responsible for what happened; I realised it only after staying with him post our engagement. The problem is with his attitude and behaviour, but I did try my best to save the relationship. I have seen his dark side; he loses his cool over petty issues, and can get violent. Woh haath uthaata hai aur cheezein phekta hai.”

Subuhi also revealed to the daily that she had once called cops as well when he had hit her. The actress told the daily, “He was disturbed as he was going through a financial crunch. Besides fighting verbally, he would often raise his hand on me. In March, I called the cops after he hit me. I was taken to the hospital for a medical check-up and on our way to the police station, he kept crying saying, ‘Mujhse galti ho gayi, maaf kar de. I’ll never repeat it’. After seeing him cry, I told the cops to let him go. In hindsight, I feel that I made a huge mistake. He should have been behind bars.”

The daily reports that the couple has not been in touch for almost two months now. Subuhi says, “I would have liked to end this relationship on a cordial note, but Sidharth is an escapist. When he doesn’t want to face something, he runs away from it. This is exactly what he did with his mother. Now, he has disappeared on me. A few weeks ago, I messaged him about his creditors coming to my home, after which he blocked me on his phone and social media handles. His important documents also bear my residential address and I don’t want to take his responsibility now.”

Sidharth, however, had a different version altogether. He told the daily, “Subuhi and I are no longer together, we have called off our engagement. We had parted ways in 2016, because of my mother, as she wasn’t in favour of this relationship. However, Subuhi reconnected with me last year, and we got back together. Everything was going good, but then compatibility issues cropped up. We called off our engagement two-and-a-half months ago.”

The comedian added, “Things were fine between us till the time I was working and making money. I feel that problems cropped up after I faced a financial crisis. Your state of mind changes when you are not working, and I was troubled at that time. We were having a lot of fights and I felt it was better to end the relationship.”

Sidharth also reacted to the accusations levelled by Subuhi and said, “I have been through a lot in life and still get pangs of depression. I realised that I didn’t have the tenacity to handle more ups and downs in the relationship. About the incident when she called the cops, we had an argument and she hit me first. My nose started bleeding. She wasn’t leaving me and in an attempt to release myself, I moved her away from me. She could have got hurt in that process. I fled the house forgetting my phone behind. When I came back to collect my phone, she had already called the cops. I could have done that, too, but I didn’t want the matter to escalate. I even told her to end the relationship that day, because it had reached an ugly stage. Given my mental state, it will take me some time to be fine. I would often tell her that I needed my space even if we were in a relationship, as that’s normal. But that, too, was an issue. As far as blocking her is concerned, she blocked me first. I did it later as I wanted some peace in my life.”
