Karan Mehra, a popular Indian television actor who played an ideal father and a devoted husband in one of the country’s longest-running daily dramas, has been accused of physically abusing his wife. Nisha Rawal, a TV actress, claims her husband Karan attacked her last night after an argument. The 38-year-old actor, who starred in the famous TV show “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai,” was detained at his Mumbai home on suspicion of the charge.
Mehra allegedly slammed his wife against the wall on Monday night during a domestic argument. She went to the police after suffering a head injury. An FIR was filed under IPC sections 336 and 337.
After his wife, actress Nisha Rawal, filed assault charges, Karan Mehra was arrested by Goregaon police on Monday night (May 31). The cops have released Karan on bail.
The couple has a four-year-old son and has been married for eight years. Nisha has never filed a complaint against her actor-husband before.
Kashmera Shah spoken about the ongoing fight between actor couple
For the sake of their son, Kavish, actress Kashmera Shah has spoken out about the ongoing dispute between actor couple Karan Mehra and Nisha Rawal, demanding that the matter not be treated as gossip. Kashmera had previously shown support for Nisha in an interview with ETimes. She’d stated, “I am with Nisha and apparently he (Karan) did hit her and there were a lot of financial things he has MESSED up with and he has been hitting her for the last couple of times and we found out when we came to the house and Nisha has been quiet about it because it is a very personal thing.”
While sharing an old photo of the couple with their kids Kashmera wrote, “These are my friends. These are the people I love very much. All three of them. So when one is hurt by the other I am sure the other is also hurting. I am writing this today because I could not bring myself to take just one person’s side yesterday as I was told by people from both sides.”
She continued, “Then there were inane calls from the press hounding me as their friend asking me to wash their dirty laundry in public which I WILL NOT… Again I am against Anyone touching a woman without her permission but I am also against a Happy Family Breaking. So if you are asking me to take sides I choose to take the side of the young child here… I don’t know his father’s side at all but I cannot bash him as he is now and Always will be Kaavish’s dad so I choose to remain neutral… So I choose not to wash my hands in this mud BUT I will stand by my friendship and I will be with Kaavish and his parents. I cannot have him grow up and see one more person taking sides and slinging mud at his parents… I am with my Friends No Matter What. People make mistakes and many do very bad things. PLEASE THINK ABOUT THE YOUNG BOY BEFORE YOU TREAT THIS AS GOSSIP. And for the ones that did not understand what I wrote let me be clear I AM AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.”
They started their respective careers as models. Before they married, they dated for nearly six years.
