Om Puri speaks out about domestic violence

Veteran actor Om Puri has spoken out for the first time since being charged by police for domestic abuse claims made by wife Nandita Puri.

In a complaint filed last week, Nandita said the 62 year old actor hit her with a stick after an argument at their Versova flat. She has also complained about Om Puri not paying her maintenances and school fees for their son.

Talking to PTI, Puri said, “I do not want to talk much about all this. She is targeting me. The matter is sub judice as it is in court. The matter will come tomorrow morning for hearing. You can ask the entire building and our staff that who abuses. I have all the evidence (of paying maintenance and school fees). Truth will come out. I have been working in the industry for 35 years, have acted in over 250 films here in 20 films abroad but no complaint of abuse or beating or misbehaviour or anything negative has ever come out against me. It shows she is lying.”
