1. Vaishnavi Dhanraj:
Popular telly actress Vaishnavi Dhanraj is in news for all right reasons. The actress recently ended her marriage with Nitin Sehrawat. Yes, Vaishnavi spoke to Spotboye.com and openly spoke about her troubled marriage. Vaishnavi was quoted syaing, “I have worked for 9 years in the TV industry, currently I guess I am in just a phase where you feel that things have become very monotonous and you get fed up. I am looking for something out of the box that will yet suit Indian TV audiences’ sensibilities.”
She further even revealed the reason behind her divorce and said “I was a victim of domestic violence, which Nitin imposed on me. I couldn’t take it beyond a certain point. Yes, it was my call. I I reached a saturation point where I couldn’t bear it any longer. It was gruesome. How can you take such behaviour from your own spouse? That too, continuously. It was a very bad case of domestic violence. I even took him for counselling. Our parents too did everything to make him understand. But nothing worked. Yes, I am speaking about this for the first time. I kept hoping that he would change and our marriage would work but he still went on. Most of the time in my marriage with Nitin, I used to be in a depression. There were good times in the middle sometimes but if something such drastic is happening alongside, then everything is just gone. You know what I mean.It became impossible for me to carry on with Nitin. I feel that it is not possible to stay in an abusive marriage until you yourself are abusive towards your partner.”
She added “One morning, it became very bad. He wouldn’t have killed me probably, but I got so scared that I ran away from the house. He had beaten me so badly that my leg was bleeding. That was my last day as his wife- emotionally, physically and mentally. I eventually got a divorce in January, this year.”
