Karan Mehra who is famous for his character Naitik from the TV show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has been in news since a couple of days now. The actor has been accused of domestic violence by his wife Nisha Rawal. She filed a complaint against him that he banged her head on the wall after a brawl at home.
However, Karan claims that his wife is suffering from a bipolar disorder. To this, Nisha responded in a press conference, “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.”
“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,” she said further.
Revealing about the complaint that she filed on the night of May 31, Nisha said, “I lashed out on 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. He also held my neck while pinning me against the wall.”
