Tamil television actress Nandhini’s husband, Karthikeyan committed suicide in Chennai on Monday. Karthikeyan, who owned a gym, apparently consumed poison with cold drinks. The police are currently investigating the case.
Popularly known as ‘Mynaa’, Nandhini rose to fame after appearing in Vijay TV’s Saravanan Meenakshi serial. The couple got married eight months ago after dating for nearly a year. Police sources said Nandhini was his second wife.
Apparently, issues cropped up between the couple, and the actor went back to her parents’ house. While initially reports said that Karthik blamed his father-in-law in his suicide note, Nandhini has a different story to tell.
Talking to Tamil news publications, Nandhini has claimed that her husband took money from many people on the pretext of getting them government jobs. This whole incident came to her knowledge when the people from whom Karthik took money started creating problems for her, asking for their money.
“When I confronted him about it, he threatened to commit suicide. And that is the reason my parents decided to take me to their home with them,” Nandhini said according to Vikatan. She regretted that all these unpleasant details of her life are now coming out due to Karthik’s suicide.
Nandhini, who is a judge on the popular comedy reality show Kalakka Povathu Yaaru, revealed shocking details for his affair with another woman who also committed suicide. In that suicide case, her husband was arrested by the police and she, trying to cover up for him, said he was in Dubai. She said only her parents knew about this incident.
She also alleged that her love was true while he was in the relationship only for her money.
“He was very upset as people were pressurising him to return his money. I used to give him pep talk time and again and even told him that we could be together again once he sorts out all the problems,” she said. “I was even giving him money from my earnings without telling anyone,” she told the Tamil publication.
She has also acted in a few movies like Vamsam and Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga.
