It is said that it is always better to solve disagreements between the family members behind closed doors, especially if you are a celebrity. Comedian Siddharth Sagar who used to appear on the show ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ regularly, had accused his parents, specially mother, of keeping him in the house forcefully and torturing him.
Sagar, speaking at a press conference, had said:
“The video which I had recently posed, where I am saying I am really worried is the situation I’ve been going through since last 4 years. But what happened in between was, I never wanted to get my family into this matter. We’ve had some serious problems going inside our family which I wanted to be solved between us only.”
He further revealed that his parents started giving him medications saying that he has been diagnosed as a bipolar. He mentioned,
“When I started with my Comedy Classes, I started feeling low, I didn’t have energy in my body, I started gaining weight. Then i was put on medication. Without my knowledge, I was put on Bipolar disorder medication and to overcome that I used to have coffee shots. Then slowly I started slipping into depression. My speech slurred and I was in a bad zone. When I told my parents about it, they said that they have put me on medicines for bipolar disorder. I was shell-shocked when I heard this. I know about bipolar and I didn’t have any of the symptoms, and here my parents were giving me drugs by mixing it in my food. This was also the time I noticed that my mother being disturbed all the time. I had never looked into my finances and when there was a property issue, we realised we had no money.”
Now, his mother, Alka Sagar, has stepped forward to explain her side of the story. In a press release, she said that the accusations made by Siddharth are false and that she and her husband are deeply hurt by his remarks. Alka Sagar added that her son is a good boy but has fallen into bad company. Siddharth has become a drug addict and has entangled himself with drug circle to such an extent that he has become unable to differentiate between right and wrong.
His father, Shirish Sagar, mentioned that his son used to break things in the house and would become violent. They also bought him a flat in Mumbai so that he doesn’t have to stay in a rented one.
Siddharth took to social media to let his viewers know about his ordeal. His fans had been worried about him as he had been absent from the screen for the four months.
