Recently, the reports of Comedian Sidharth Sagar goes missing spread like a wildfire. It all started when one of his friend shared a post on Facebook. Later, Siddharth took his Instagram to post a video saying that he is in safe hands now and will reveals the details soon.
He also said that, he will organise a press conference to answer all the queries.
And now, on Sunday Siddharth had called a press conference and he revealed each and everything he goes through in the past months.
As per the reports (that his parents separated), the comedian revealed that his parents were separated 20 years ago, but had a cordial relationship. While his father lived in Delhi, Siddharth was staying with his mother.
Siddharth revealed that he became very close to her and that she was his best friend, until she met a man. He was quoted by IE as saying, “She met this man Suyash Gadgil and I was happy that she found someone in her life. But things only took a turn for the worse in our lives. I feel terrible to now bring my family matters in public but I have no other option.”
He said, “I was into spirituality and have my gurus in Delhi, where I found peace and solace. My parents always thought that I should leave the industry and so they tried their best to keep me away from there.”
“There came a time when I started feeling really low and I had put on weight. And since I was trying to stop smoking, I was taking too much coffee. Soon I realised, I was depressed. 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 disease. I was shell-shocked when I heard it. 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 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” he added.
He said he was so disturbed, he left home and got abused to certain substances. He soon realized what he was doing was wrong and returned home and told his mother to get him admitted to a rehab. However, he claims he was beaten at the rehab centre. “Four-five people used to bash me and I would bleed and lose consciousness. I was shattered completely. Somehow, I managed to connect with my managers who pulled me out from there after a month. I thought life would turn to normal but it turned worse. I would have regular fights at home with Suyash and I tried my best to stay away. This was also the time I had filed a NC (non-cognisable report) against them for I really feared for my life and well-being. It came true when I was picked up while travelling back from Goa and thrown into a mental asylum where I was tortured and treated for ailments I didn’t even have,” he says in the report.
“But since it was turning out to be an expensive treatment, my mother decided to shift me to Asha Ki Kiran, a rehabilitation centre that did not bother much about finance.” he said.
He added, “I found a family here that listens and understands me. When I met Basheer bhai (Basheer Qureshi, founder of Asha Ki Kiran), he told me to leave all my stress and worries aside and start afresh. “When they examined me, they found that my psychological issues cropped up because of the wrong medicines I had been put on. I love being with them and although I am fit to work, I feel secure with them and want to stay longer to strengthen my sanity and myself.”
He added, “I have lost about Rs 4-5 Crores of property but I know I can get back on my feet again.” He further wants his parents to go through counselling as he feels that they have lost the way somewhere.
He further added, “My mother has changed so much in these years. She has now become hyper and I hope we can get her back to normalcy. I was physically, mentally and emotionally shattered but I am now ready to face the world once again.”
