Odisha: Varsha Responds To Anubhav’s Tell-All Videos With Police Complaint
Cuttack: A day after actor-turned-politician Anubhav Mohanty released his second tell-all video, his estranged wife Varsha Priyadarshini lodged a complaint at Puri Ghat police station here on Sunday.
In her complaint against Anubhav and his family, she has objected to the videos being released on social media by the actor having “unpalatable statements, which are defamatory in nature and aim at character assassination”.
Anubhav released one video on May 19 and the other on May 21. In the first video titled ‘untold story’, he promised to spill the beans about the discord with his estranged wife Varsha Priyadarshini, but only if fans gave him the permission to do so while in the second, he elaborated on the reason which forced him to file for divorce from his wife.
The actor said he has been accused of neglecting Varsha and spoiling her happiness and happy conjugal life. “It is totally wrong. It is not at all true that all was honky-dory between us or we were very happy and suddenly I decided to file for divorce,” he said.
Speaking on the prime cause of divorce towards the end of divorce, Anubhav said, “I had cited only one reason in the petition for separation from my wife. It was due to the non-consummation of marriage. She has not allowed the marital rights of a husband to me till date. She has always opposed the idea for the entire six years. Now, it is up to you to decide how long and why a husband will tolerate it.”
Anubhav filed for divorce in the Patiala House Court in New Delhi in July 2020. This was revealed after Varsha filed a case of domestic violence at the Cuttack Sub-divisional Judicial Magistrate (SJDM) court on August 7, 2020, accusing the actor of torturing her physically and mentally.
