Comedian Siddharth Sagar who has been a part of Comedy Circus and The Kapil Sharma Show got engaged to Splitsvilla fame Subuhi Joshi last year in November. Well, seems like there is trouble in paradise as the couple recently called off their engagement. While Subuhi has accused Siddharth of domestic violence, Siddharth has blamed incompatibility as the reason of their break-up.
For the uninitiated, Siddharth and Subuhi first met in 2014 after which they started dating. After two years, in 2016 the couple split up only to get back last year. The two decided to take their relationship one step further by getting engaged five months ago, but seems like things have taken an ugly turn.
Speaking to Bombay Times Subuhi shared, “When we separated in 2016, he blamed his mother for it. However, she wasn’t entirely responsible for what happened; I realised it only after staying with him post our engagement. The problem is with his attitude and behaviour, but I did try my best to save the relationship. I have seen his dark side; he loses his cool over petty issues, and can get violent. Woh haath uthaata hai aur cheezein phekta hai.”
She says that she even had to call the cops once after Sidharth hit her. She recalls, “He was disturbed as he was going through a financial crunch. Besides fighting verbally, he would often raise his hand on me. In March, I called the cops after he hit me. I was taken to the hospital for a medical check-up and on our way to the police station, he kept crying saying, ‘Mujhse galti ho gayi, maaf kar de. I’ll never repeat it’. After seeing him cry, I told the cops to let him go. In hindsight, I feel that I made a huge mistake. He should have been behind bars.”
Reports suggest that the two have not been keeping in touch for two months now. Sidharth, however, has a different story to tell. He says, “Subuhi and I are no longer together, we have called off our engagement. We had parted ways in 2016, because of my mother, as she wasn’t in favour of this relationship. However, Subuhi reconnected with me last year, and we got back together. Everything was going good, but then compatibility issues cropped up. We called off our engagement two-and-a-half months ago.”
Reacting to the accusations levelled by Subuhi, Sidharth says, “I have been through a lot in life and still get pangs of depression. I realised that I didn’t have the tenacity to handle more ups and downs in the relationship. About the incident when she called the cops, we had an argument and she hit me first. My nose started bleeding. She wasn’t leaving me and in an attempt to release myself, I moved her away from from me. She could have got hurt in that process. I fled the house forgetting my phone behind. When I came back to collect my phone, she had already called the cops. I could have done that, too, but I didn’t want the matter to escalate. I even told her to end the relationship that day, because it had reached an ugly stage. Given my mental state, it will take me some time to be fine. I would often tell her that I needed my space even if we were in a relationship, as that’s normal. But that, too, was an issue. As far as blocking her is concerned, she blocked me first. I did it later as I wanted some peace in my life.”
