Exclusive – Nisha Rawal: This is about Karan having an extramarital affair and constant abuse over the years, which I have never spoken aboutActress Nisha Rawal, who earlier accused husband Karan Mehra of domestic violence has finally spoken. The actress revealed in an explosive chat about what all she has been facing in her marital life.
Talking exclusively with BT, Nisha Rawal broke her silence for the first time. Sharing her side of the story, Nisha said, “One of the charges filed by me against him is of domestic violence. I hadn’t spoken about it for so many years as I understand that for an actor his career and image are of utmost importance. In spite of being considerate and compassionate I have had to face something like this. This is definitely about Karan having an extra marital affair, me trying to work on the marriage, him not even taking responsibility of the child and constant abuse over the years, which I have never spoken about. I have evidence to authenticate my claim.”
Ask her why she decided to put up with it for so long and she replies, “Because I love him. I still do. It wasn’t easy for me to go ahead with the FIR. That’s why I put up with this behaviour. Every time he would apologise and promise to not repeat it, I would forgive him. But I finally decided to not be one of those women who worry more about the image. I had to speak the truth and stand up for myself and many more who have been through this hell like me.”
Nisha says she learnt what he has been up to for so many years. “I learnt about him being involved with another woman around a couple of months ago. I saw his text messages to the girl, I saw them for myself. Even after that, I sat him down and told him to talk about it. I have not behaved like a woman who will rip a man into pieces. I asked him if he didn’t want to continue then no problem. I flew down to his parents in Noida. My own mother got to know about it a few weeks ago. I hid it from my family and friends, as I wanted to save the marriage. After my mother learnt about the trouble in our marriage, I told her that I was still willing to work on it if he wanted to. After putting up for so long, around a month ago I told him that if he continues to behave like this, then we should split and he agreed. I told him that let’s settle it amicably and agree on an X amount. I made my resume, circulated it and started asking for a job since a month. I will do any work to support my child.”
Talking about asking for exorbitant money as alimony, she says, “It’s about my child and me. I got to know about his affair, repeated abuses… I ignored it, because I wanted to keep the marriage intact and I was also worried about his image of Naitik…goody-two-shoes. I have loved him and his parents. Over the years, Karan has been the financial head of our family and has taken control of everything, right from Kavish’s and my income that comes in from advertisements, etc. He has taken a lot of bills directly into his account. He would also transfer money from my account. I don’t even know what my loan account numbers, my property papers are because you trust your partner. I invested in a relationship with complete faith. I finally told him that you are having an affair, you are not happy with me, you don’t want to live with me, but now we have a child. If I wasn’t a mother, I would have walked out. But that’s not the case. I would have still walked out if he had left anything for me from my earnings. He has sold my wedding jewellery as well. I don’t know where I felt short as a wife. I have supported him financially, given my all. Despite everything, he has been misbehaving and talking ill about my mother.”
