Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor Karan Mehra was arrested earlier this week over alleged domestic violence against his wife Nisha Rawal. Nisha filed a complaint after a brawl at home that led to a head injury to Nisha. As Nisha states that Karan has been abusive, Karan keeps claiming that his wife banged her head on the wall herself. Nisha had also accused Karan Mehra of extramarital affair.
Talking about the night of May 31 when Nisha filed a complaint, she said, “I lashed out at him about all the feelings that I had bottled up. We spoke and he was visibly upset. When I got up to leave the room, he held my hair and pushed me against the wall.” She also said that Karan held her neck while pinning her against the wall.
As Karan claimed in multiple reports that his wife has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, Nisha responded by stating that it was due to her loss in a miscarriage in 2014 that she suffered from the disorder.
“Bipolar is a mood disorder which happens due to extreme trauma and it’s genetic sometimes. I was diagnosed with bipolarity, and I am not going to lie about it as I am not ashamed about it. But I am not a psycho, it is a mood disorder. And you all know how balanced I am. I create content for the web, I make videos and write about things. I don’t have to prove anything,” Nisha said at the press conference on Tuesday.
Adding to it, she said, “In September 2014, I was 5 months pregnant, and I lost my child. Recently, I made a mom’s group where women who lost their child can speak up about it as when I lost my child, I did not have anyone to talk to about the loss. I wanted to go to my parents and talk to them because it was a very big trauma for me. In the middle of it my husband was beating me up, abusing me, he was unavailable, totally detached and that’s when I went to a therapist. In fact, Karan had stopped me from going to a therapist, he didn’t let me go to a gym, he was very controlling in everything”
Nisha Rawal and Karan Mehra have a son named Kavish whom family, friends and fans are concerned about too.
