"I have been going through terrible times for more than a year now. I was shocked when I received a call from a woman claiming to be the first wife of my husband SiddharthBanthiya. I was scared of the humiliation I would have to suffer if I spoke out. I was scared of upsetting my professional career as well." Smitha says that she finally mustered up courage and decided to fight through this "injustice". "Siddharth has fooled me and I don't want others to face what I have been subjected to," she said.
The actress has filed a case against her husband in the women's grievance redressal cell accusing him of bigamy. Smitha says that the emotional upheaval has taken a toll on her career. "I have been lucky to have supportive parents. I am trying to focus on my work. I will be married only to work now," she adds confirming that she has some projects lined up.
