Tv Comedian Siddharth Sagar and Splitsvilla fame Subuhi Joshi fell in love in 2014 and started dating but parted ways in 2016 only to get back together last year. The couple also exchanged rings in November last year. And just when we were expecting a “happily ever after” news about their trouble in paradise surfaced on social media. Yes you heard it right, Subhi Joshi and Siddharth Sagar have mutually called off their engagement and Subuhi has accused Siddharth of physical abuse.
In an interview with Times of India Subuhi accused Siddharth of physical abuse and had stated that it was the main reason behind their breakup. “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 further went on to reveal that he was going through a financial crunch and said,“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.I would have liked to end this relationship on a cordial note, but Sidharth is an escapist. When he doesn’t want to face something, he runs away from it. This is exactly what he did with his mother. Now, he has disappeared on me. A few weeks ago, I messaged him about his creditors coming to my home, after which he blocked me on his phone and social media handles. His important documents also bear my residential address and I don’t want to take his responsibility now.”
While Siddharth’s side of the store was completely different. He was quoted as saying, “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. Things were fine between us till the time I was working and making money. I feel that problems cropped up after I faced a financial crisis. Your state of mind changes when you are not working, and I was troubled at that time. We were having a lot of fights and I felt it was better to end the relationship.”
When confronted about the accusations made by Subuhi, he said, “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 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.”
