Nisha Rawal has said that she is “bipolar” and not a “psycho” amid domestic abuse allegations against husband Karan Mehra.

In a press conference on Tuesday, Nisha denied all allegations made by Mehra. He had revealed that she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and had a ‘violent anger streak’.

She said, “Whatever I have said is the truth and it happened to me and now Karan will say whatever he wants to say. He obviously won’t accept. The person who has no conscience for his own kid, and even after getting separated he is doing such things, what else can you expect. A lot of things are shocking to me and I have cried a lot after reading his statements. I know he’’ saying that I banged my face against the wall but I am an actor why would I do that. For me my face is precious. I have a child, why would I do that.”

Talking about her disorder, Rawal said, “Bipolar is a mood disorder which happens due to extreme trauma and it’s genetic sometimes. I was diagnosed with bipolarity and I am not going to lie about it as I am not ashamed about it. But I am not a psycho, it is a mood disorder. And you all know how balanced I am. I create content for the web, I make videos and write about things. I don’t have to prove anything.”

She added that Rawal was not there when she suffered a miscarriage previously, “In September 2014, I was 5 months pregnant and I lost my child. Recently, I made a moms group where women who lost their child can speak up about it as when I lost my child, I did not have anyone to talk about the loss.”

She further added, “I wanted to go to my parents and talk to them because it was a very big trauma for me. In the middle of it my husband was beating me up, abusing me, he was unavailable, totally detached and that’s when I went to a therapist. In fact, Karan had stopped me from going to a therapist, he didn’t let me go to a gym, he was very controlling in everything,” she said.
