In 2019, TV actress and sister of doctor-model Aditi Govitrikar- Arzoo Govitrikar- filed a domestic violence case against her husband Siddharth Sabharwal. In her complaint, the Naagin 2 actress claimed that in one instance her husband dragged her inside the bathroom and repeatedly slapped her under the influence of alcohol. Now, Arzoo has filed for divorce. Confirming the same to a leading daily, the actress shared that Siddharth pulled her neck, tried to throw her out of their flat, kicked her in the stomach and even beat her up black and blue. She said she can't take it anymore.
"Yes, I have filed for divorce. Enough is enough and I am not going to take this lying down anymore. I swallowed my pride; I tried, and I tried my best. But matters came to a head and I couldn't continue with Siddharth. I had so far not spoken in the media, not even when I was hounded by calls from journalists two years ago. But I will talk today. I want to tell you that he has pulled me by my neck and tried to throw me out of the flat. He has slapped me. He has kicked me in my stomach. There were days when I was beaten up black and blue and I couldn't come out because I didn't want my bruises to be seen," Arzoo told.
She further accused Siddharth of hurling abuses at her. "Mujhe bahut gandi gaaliyan deta tha. Imagine, he even hurled casteist abuses at me. He also told me that I am a bai (maid). " Arzoo spoke about how the issue had an adverse effect on her. She shared, "I suffered blackouts and my hands and legs used to swell up. I stopped getting sleep and if I managed to sleep then I would suddenly wake up at 2 am."
Arzoo went on to reveal when the crack started to appear in their relationship. She further stated that Siddharth has a Russian girlfriend. "Siddharth first raised his hand on me two years after our marriage. And after our son was born three years after we became man and wife, he simply drifted apart. He started sleeping in another room. After that, I found out that he has a Russian girlfriend; he was constantly on chats with her. I confronted him about her. I don't know if they're together now because he stays separately. Mind you, I have those chats and the CCTV footage of his violence and it would help me to get justice," Arzoo shared.
The actress went on to mention that Siddharth doesn't pay her sufficient maintenance. She said that her sister-in-law doesn't want to get into the matter and there is nobody from his family to discuss the issues with. She further claimed, "He told me he knows how the legal system works and he will nachao me for 15 years."
