Comedian and television host Balaji has said that the media was making a ‘mountain out of a molehill’ by blowing out of proportion a small ‘family feud’ between him and his wife Nithya.
It may be recalled Nithya, who got married to Balaji a decade back after falling in love with him, had filed a complaint with the Madhavaram Police in Chennai a few days back stating that he was physically and verbally abusing her by using her caste name. “I took the extreme step of seeking help from the police as I couldn’t bear his torture of many kinds,” she had stated in her complaint.
Balaji, who hasn’t been spotted in many films of late but has been hosting reality comedy and other shows on Vijay TV, has played the feud down by stating that the media had been making a huge issue out of a minor misunderstanding between a wife and her husband.
“I got married to Balaji after falling in love and came to know of his liquor-drinking habits only after our marriage. Many a time, he would return home in a drunken manner, fight with me and beat me up for no reason. I even got admitted to Hospital a few times to receive treatment for those injuries,” Nithya reportedly said in her complaint filed with the Police.
