On Saturday, Malik filed a complaint at Sector 7 police station in Faridabad against her uncle and got them arrested.
Speaking to Mirror, Malik said, “My uncles and other relatives were against me pursuing a career in Bollywood right from the beginning and have been after my parents to ask me to quit.’’ Malik, who belongs to the Jat community, added, “Our relatives influenced my father, who went against me. It is only my mother who supports me. The relatives threatened my parents with dire consequences if I did not quit films.’’
Malik, who participated in the reality show Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, said, “My parents have been given death threats if they fail to call me back home. They threatened my mother who stood by me in my choice of career. This forced me take action against my relatives.”
Currently in Faridabad, the actress said though she first filed a complaint against her uncle and in July, her family has been harassed since she particpated in Swayamvar in 2010 .
“My mother has recorded the phone threats and when the police heard it, an FIR was filed following which my uncle Mahavir Singh and his son, Amit Mallik, were arrested.’’
Nikhunj is now more worried about the security of her family.
“They might go on a revenge mode after their arrest. And, you can never criminals. They are very shrewd people,” said Malik.
