Celebs react on Dimpy Mahajan abuse
While Jaya Prada and Krishna Tirath have come out in support for Dimpy Mahajan who was allegedly beaten by her husband Rahul Mahajan, people like Ashutosh Kaushik and ex-wife Shweta Singh choose to remain neutral on the issue. This is what they had to say.Updated: Jul 30, 2010 15:50 IST
Condemning Rahul Mahajan's actions, Minister for Women and Child Development Krishna Tirath said that if Dimpy were to press charges, Rahul would have to face similar consequences as a common man.
Dimpy has alleged that Rahul punched, kicked and dragged her by her hair. She also said that in one of the fights, he had pointed a gun at her.
Appalled by his behaviour, Jaya Prada actress and politician feels that his violent behaviour is unacceptable and reflects poorly on the society.
According to Dimpy's version, Rahul suddenly turned violent over a trivial matter and thrashed her.
Bhojpuri actor Ravi Kissen, who has seen Rahul Mahajan from close quarters from his Bigg Boss days, said that Rahul's behaviour is inexcusable and no one should raise his hand on a woman.
This is not the first instance where Rahul has been accused of domestic violence. Rahul's first marriage with childhood friend Shweta Singh ended acrimoniously on similar grounds.
Shweta refused to comment on the issue but urged the media to deal with it sensitively. Deeming it a "private matter", Singh said that violence doesn't solve anything and fails to understand why women are ill-treated.
Rahul has had a troubled past with drug abuse charges and a divorce from childhood friend Shweta Singh.
A close friend of Rahul has revealed that Dimpy is still in Mumbai and Dimpy's father will meet Rahul soon to resolve the matter.
MTV Roadies 5.0 winner Ashutosh Kaushik remained neutral on the matter and said that he was no one to comment on this matter and only the two of them know what exactly happened behind the closed doors.
