Ex-Bigg Boss contestant Mandana Karimi has filed a domestic violence complaint against her husband Gaurav Gupta. The allegations come one day after she was reported to have filed for divorce from her husband of 5 months.

A Bollywood Life report says that Mandana was barred from entering her home by Gaurav, and has also filed a complaint against her mother-in-law for harassment.

“I was thrown out of my matrimonial house seven weeks ago. I made desperate attempts to reconcile with them, but my in-laws didn’t allow me back. Gaurav has cut me off,” she told Mid-Day.

According to a Times of India report, Mandana also alleges that she was asked to quit her career after getting married. The Bollywood Life report claims that she was forced to convert to Hinduism before her wedding, which Mandana refused to do. Post her stint in the reality show, Mandana has appeared in a handful of films, and music videos.

She married Gaurav in January 2017, after making his acquaintance in 2012, when she was moving to Mumbai from her native Iran to pursue a career in the movies.

Mandana’s Instagram account, which has more than 3 lakh followers, has been made private.
