Why TV Actor Karan Mehra says wife Nisha Rawal ‘smashed her head on the wall’ ?
Popular television actor Karan Mehra, who played the role of an ideal father and a doting husband in one of the country’s longest running daily soaps Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, has been accused of beating his wife Nisha Rawal. Nisha Rawal, also a TV actor, alleged that her husband Karan thrashed her after a fight last night. The Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai star has been married for more than eight years. Karan Mehra’s wife Nisha Rawal filed a case against him on May 31 night accusing him of assault. An FIR was registered under section 336 and 337 of IPC and after being detained for questioning, the actor was later placed under arrest. Shortly after, he was granted bail.
The Goregaon Police has filed a case against him under Indian Penal Code sections 336 (endangering human life or the personal safety others), 337 (causing hurt by an act which endangers human life), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation).
Karan Mehra is out on bail. Speaking about the whole incident, the actor said that Nisha has filed a false case against him. He said, “(Last night) I was talking to my mother over the phone when Nisha barged in and started hurling abuses at me, my parents, and my brother. She started shouting loudly and not only that Nisha even spat on me. When I asked Nisha to go out, she threatened me by saying ‘see what I do now’ and went out. She then smashed her head on the wall, and told everyone that I did it.”
This incident caught the attention of not just the fans of the couple but also the actor’s co-star from the iconic show Rohan Mehra who played the role of his on-screen son. In an interview, Rohan said that he is extremely shocked as he has never seen him losing his temper or raising his voice on somebody. Rohan said, “He was head over heels in love with his wife. They both are very close to me. We have travelled together, too. That was long back. We have spoken on Instagram. I never thought that there is a problem. But no one can say if there is a problem between husband and wife.”
The rumours of trouble in Karan Mehra and Nisha Rawal’s marriage started doing the rounds earlier in May. Karan rubbished the rumours. He had said, “I have no clue what led to these rumours all of a sudden. I saw this news today only and I have been getting calls from everywhere. When Nisha got the news, she had also cleared it. Even after that, I don’t know how these rumours started spreading.”
Nisha Rawal is also a famous TV actor and a model. She has appeared in multiple TV commercials, including those for Coca Cola, Sunsilk shampoo, among others. She has also acted in a few Bollywood movies.
The couple was seen together on television in a dance reality show – “Nach Baliye”.
In 2008, Karan Mehra and Nisha Rawal met on the sets of her film Hastey Hastey, where he was working as a stylist. As the shoot progressed, the two became good friends, and love bloomed soon after. The couple tied the knot in November 2012 in a big fat Indian wedding style. Karan and Nisha welcomed their first baby Kavish Mehra in 2017.
Karan was shooting in Punjab for his show Mawaan Thandiyan Chawan when he had to return to Mumbai last month after a few crew members tested positive for Covid-19.
