Charu made allegations against Rajeev about physical abuse and has also said that he cheated on her during her pregnancy.
TellyChakkar got in touch with the actor to talk about her daughter Ziana and the state of her relationship and family support.
Amidst this chaos, your daughter turns a year older today, what are your plans for her birthday?
Today is a very important day for me because Ziana turns one today and I am feeling very nostalgic. I am remember everything, from going to the hospital to the operation. All her firsts have been very emotional for me, the first time I held her in my arms and the first time she laughed or crawled, I have noted down everything with a special date in a diary for memory's sake. Today is actually really special for the whole family and the whole family is getting together for a dinner and that is really special.
There has been a lot of ups and downs regarding your equation with Rajeev Sen, some people have even called it a media trial, Rajeev has said that he only wants the best for Ziana. What do you have to say to that?
The claim that he has made that he only wants the best for Ziana is coming out of nowhere because he has been an absent father. He has never been there for doctor visits, special occasions, or vaccination appointments. He was never there in Mumbai, he was always somewhere else. He is only now taking interest because so many things are out there about the relationship we shared, and now he is trying to prove to society that he is a good father when in reality he was never there. He keeps pointing fingers at me about how engrossed I am in my youtube content when in reality its he who does everything for views, everything is just for his Youtube family. He came all the way to Bhelwada when Ziana was down with dengue. He had already booked a 5-star hotel and chosen the smallest route that was convenient for him. When he did come to visit her, he only spent maybe 1 hour with her and then went back to his hotel room. He has always chosen his comfort and convenience over his daughter and it is easy to play the blame game but when it was time to show up for her in the hospital, I was with her and not him.
Rajeev in a recent video has called for a lie detector test and said again that he means no harm, what is your response to that?
I’ll be the happiest person if there is a lie detector test, I am ready for it. And I really want someone to arrange it for us. Rajeev must have said yes to it, thinking that no one would actually arrange it and he will be proven right. I really want someone to do a lie detector test because I know I have only spoken the truth and the claim that he has made that he doesn’t speak to the media, or discuss his personal issues in public. Everyone knows this everything that I have said has been in response to his allegations. And I broke my silence when the allegations were becoming more and more absurd day by day like when he claimed I was mentally unstable. When he started crossing his limits and started lying blatantly like I hid things about my first marriage from him, is when I could not take it anymore and he was lying about things that no one could have proof of.
Charu and Rajeev have been going back with forth for a little while, and people are only praying that this matter resolves quickly for the sake and well-being of their daughter Ziana and that both parties can be at peace.
