TV actress Vaishnavi Dhanraj made a shocking revelation about being physically abused by ex-husband and actor Nitin Sahrawat.

The 'CID' actress opened up on being a victim of domestic violence in an interview to an entertainment website.

While speaking to spotboye.com, Vaishnavi Dhanraj said, "I was a victim of domestic violence, which Nitin imposed on me. I couldn't take it beyond a certain point. I reached a saturation point where I couldn’t bear it any longer. It was gruesome. How can you take such behaviour from your own spouse? That too, continuously. It was a very bad case of domestic violence. I even took him for counselling."

She further added, "One morning, it became very bad. He wouldn't have killed me probably, but I got so scared that I ran away from the house. He had beaten me so badly that my leg was bleeding. That was my last day as his wife - emotionally, physically and mentally. I eventually got a divorce in January, this year. He would say: ‘You deserve it’. He was not sorry about it. He would make up in some other manner but never with an apology. I see many marriages shrouded in domestic violence, couples stay together for their kids or society - but I eventually decided that I can’t remain in a marriage devoid of love and respect."

Vaishnavi Dhanraj and Nitin Sahrawat first met on the set of their Tv show 'Kitani Mohabbat Hai' and got hitched in December 2012 after a year of courtship.

The couple filed for a divorce in July 2015 and were legally divorced in January 2016.
