Controversies apart, Sanam Shetty has always been seen being very supportive of Tharshan and has been very protective of him on social media. The model had been seen around with him a lot lately and is getting to spend a lot of time with him too. Recently, rumours were rife that the couple had parted ways but there were no confirmations from either of them.
In an unexpected turn of events, Sanam Shetty has lodged a police complaint against Tharshan Thiyagarajan for allegedly harassing her mentally and physically. She further stated that the couple was engaged much before Tharshan went on to become a part of the reality show. Talking to the media outside the station, Sanam Shetty said that Tharshan treated her rudely after he returned from the show.

“I got engaged to Tharshan before the show started. At that time, he’d asked me not to talk about it, and I complied. We had made plans to get married in June. But he started behaving indifferently after the show. He avoided me, humiliated me, and I was harassed mentally and physically. I was also threatened by his family. They said they know how to silence me if I talk about the engagement, the harassment, et al,” she tells TOI.
Sanam continues, “For a few months, I tried convincing him, but he refused to even acknowledge my presence. He never treated me like a girlfriend; in fact, I’m his fiancée. With no options left, I have now filed a complaint at the office of the Commissioner of Police. I will be filing the same with the Women’s Commission, too.”
According to Sanam, the case has been filed under Section 420 of the IPC for breach of trust, cheating, threatening and harassing a woman. She adds that Tharshan kept accusing her of having affairs with her co-stars. “He knew that I’m an actress. It’s I who did everything for him. I have spent over `20 lakh to buy him various things, including engagement and wedding-preparation expenses. I have helped him with his visa procedures. I also sent his application for Bigg Boss Tamil, and helped him with contacts in the industry,” she adds.
