Inder Kumar’s death left every one shocked. Almost every star from the Indian film industry poured in at the star’s funeral. It was saddening that the industry lost another talented actor to depression without ever recognizing his problems and issues. Inder Kumar’s ex-girlfriend, Isha Koppikar, expressed shock and said that he had great potential to become a big name in the industry.
Inder’s ex-wife, Sonal, whom he was married to for just five months, has made some shocking revelations about his addictions and how he was depressed because of his sinking acting career. Sonal’s words are really hard to believe but are equally depressing to know.
Talking about his obsession for Isha Koppikar, Sonal said,
He couldn’t forget Isha Koppikar. I think it was a case of ‘first love cannot be forgotten’. At times, he used to tell me that he is going to meet her. I even told him to get her home sometimes, but he did not.
I think he was in touch with her even after we divorced each other. He wouldn’t show it too much and he didn’t tell me either- but I could sense that he couldn’t shake off Isha from his mind. Main shaadi ke time bhi suna tha that he hasn’t forgotten Isha but I ignored that hearsay.
Add this to his habits- drugs, and alcohol. It became very tough on me.
She tried every possible way to get rid of his addiction but nothing worked,
I tried every trick in the book to cleanse him up- but nothing worked. He was also very frustrated because films were not happening to him. He was in his own world for a large part of the day.
Sonal even accepted that Inder used to physically abuse her and how her breaking point came when she couldn’t bear anything at all.
Haan, woh sab to chalta rahta tha. And then you know, there came a point where I couldn’t take it any longer.
It was Inder’s obsession for Isha Koppikar that made him abandon his daughter Khushi, who still misses him and wants to know about her father.
I had moved out from his life when I was pregnant. I informed him that he has become a father to a girl but he was least interested, he didn’t even respond to that message.
She further added,
Many times. In fact, she had too many questions about why Inder was not in our lives. I kept evading as much as I could. Kya bolti main?
I showed her the pictures of the funeral. She has gone quite silent.
Inder’s third wife, Pallavi, and Sonal are friends on Facebook. Sonal has sweet things to say about her and even for Inder, Sonal says,
Well, we are friends on Facebook if that’s what you call ‘in touch’. Whenever I post Khushi’s pictures, she always ‘likes’ them. She seems to be a nice lady. At the end of it all, I would still say that Inder too was nice. I guess, we were just not destined to remain together. Jo ho gaya so ho gaya. I am definitely sad that Inder is no more. May his soul rest in peace.
Sonal is now living in Amravati with her present husband and another nine-year-old daughter. Khushi stays with her grandfather, Rajoo. When Inder first made his debut in the industry, people thought that he will become the next talk of the town. Sadly, that couldn’t happen because the star lost all his hopes on his talent.
