A source told a leading daily: "Problems cropped up soon after Rucha tied the knot on October 24, 2010 with Mitul, who is from a very affluent family. Mitul is completely under his parents' hold and shares everything with them, including the couple's bedroom conversations. The torture began on their honeymoon... No sooner had they returned that his parents started meddling in their affairs too. She was asked by her husband to follow whatever her father-in-law asked her to do."
Reportedly, Rucha did not deny the news. "I would not like to divulge the details. All I can say is that I want justice," she confirmed to the daily.
