Noted actor Om Puri,who has been charged of domestic violence,on Tuesday accused his estranged wife of targeting him and said the truth will prevail.
Puri’s wife Nandita filed a police complaint on Thursday accusing the 62-year-old actor of hitting her with a stick after an argument at their Versova flat last week.
“I do not want to talk much about all this. She is targeting me. The matter is sub judice as it is in court. The matter will come tomorrow morning for hearing,” Puri said.
Nandita had earlier complained that Puri was not paying her maintenance and school fees of their son.
“You can ask the entire building and our staff that who abuses. I have all the evidence (of paying maintenance and school fees). Truth will come out.
“I have been working in the industry for 35 years,have acted in over 250 films here in 20 films abroad but no complaint of abuse or beating or misbehaviour or anything negative has ever come out against me. It shows she is lying,” Puri alleged.
“I understand what my son (Ishaan) would be going through. I was quiet because of my son,” he said.
