Five weeks after her engagement to a realtor, popular Kannada film heroine Pooja Gandhi called off her wedding with her fiance on Wednesday (December 19). She accused him for "ill-treating" her and her family.
Pooja, who recently quit Janata Dal (S) and joined the newly launched Karnataka Janata Party (KJP), was in tears while announcing that she has called off her proposed marriage with Ananda Gowda, with whom she exchanged the betrothal ring on November 15.
"I am in no way responsible for break up. He alone is responsible. He is a suspecting character. He suspects me and insults me," Pooja said. "I tolerated a lot. Tried to save my relationship with him. But he pushed me into mental depression," the Mungaru Male fame actress said.
Pooja rejected Gowda's accusations, who blamed her mother for the current situation and ruled out any rapprochement. "I have returned the engagement ring on Wednesday," Pooja, who acted in nearly 40 films said.
On the other end, Anand said, "We have not been seeing since three years. We just came to know each other nine months ago through a journalist. When I found that she had special friendship with a boy, we had temporarily parted ways a few months ago. But we sorted out the differences and came together."
He continues, "I blame her mother for all these mess. She made a nasty remark on my colour and made a loose statement on our eating habits. She also had too many demands, as she was not happy with the relationship. Though my family had opposed marrying an actress, love made me blind. I don't point finger at Pooja for this break up but her mom."
