Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai fame actor Karan Mehra has opened up about not being able to meet his four-year-old son, Kavish in over 100 days and why he is not interested in a public trial. In May this year, Karan’s wife, actor Nisha Rawal had accused him of domestic violence and filed a police complaint. The telly actor was arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife and later released on bail.
“It has been more than three months and I am fighting the battle. The matter is subjudice so I don’t want to talk much about it,” says actor Karan Mehra.
Amid the ongoing domestic dispute, Karan, who hasn’t met his son in the last 100 days, says, “I have not seen Kavish for more than 100 days, not able to enter my home or take my belongings. It has been an emotional, disturbing, and painful time for all of us. We are fighting it as a family.”
Mehra said that everyone in his family, including his parents, was affected. “It is not right to put my parents through all this, especially when my dad is a heart patient. It is quite disturbing. The proceedings, the process, and the fight are not easy. I am out of my house while she and her brother are in the house, aaram se,” says the actor, who has been busy shooting for his Punjabi show which keeps him “going and is distracting”.
He further reveals that he has proof of every implication and will share them at the right time. The actor explains, “You can’t go head-on in such matters. One can say anything about anyone but it doesn’t make it the truth. I don’t have to counter and give my safai to every allegation and not doing so, doesn’t make me wrong. It doesn’t have to be a public trial. Kavish will see stories online of our fights. Things are being handled legally and I will let things take their course.”
The actor further added that his experiences have taught him that it is an uphill fight for men. “If a person like me is going through this, then one can’t even imagine what a regular guy must be going through. It is very difficult for you personally, family, people associated with you, and for your work. Thankfully, I have so many people who have been supportive, which really matters to me,” he added.
