‘Baghban’ actress Arzoo Govitrikar files domestic violence case against husband


Actress Arzoo Govitrikar has filed domestic violence case against her businessman husband Siddharth Sabharwal. Arzoo has also submitted CCTV footage of the abuse, supporting her complaint. But her husband denied it.

Few weeks ago, Arzoo Govitrikar moved out of her husband’s house. In her complaint, she said that on February 15th, she had an argument with her husband over his alcohol consumption and following which he dragged her inside the room and hit her very hardly.

The tabloid quoted her husband as saying, “It was she who asked me to slap her saying she was rehearsing for a crime show. I will respond to these allegations at the right forum.” The report also claimed that Arzoo has alleged Siddharth had taken sole custody of the couple’s five-year-old son without Arzoo’s consent.

Arzoo Govitrikar is the sister of actress model Aditi Govitrikar. She married Siddharth Sabharwal in 2010 and they have a five-year-old son Aashman.

On Tuesday, Arzoo filed a fresh complaint against Siddharth Sabharwal at the Worli police station for son’s custody. She was accompanied by her sister Aditi and their actor friend Aashish Chaudhary. When Mumbai Mirror asked for her comment on the issue,  Aditi Govitrikar said that she"didn't want to discuss her personal matter."

Arzoo starred in Bollywood movies, ‘Baaghban’ and ‘Mere Baap Pehle Aap’ and also appeared in the TV show ‘Ek Ladki Anjani Si’.
