Poonam Pandey’s hubby Sam Bombay Hits Back: My wife has all the qualities but loyalty | Exclusive Interview |

Poonam Pandey has now levied her share of allegations against her estranged husband Sam Bombay in the Ekta Kapoor-MX Player’s ‘Lock Upp‘ show which she’s currently doing. These allegations may be far from over, but ETimes TV spoke to Sam on video for his side of the story. “Till date, I haven’t spoken about whatever has been happening with me for 4 years. This is the first time I am speaking out,” he began (See the video below for the full interview).

Excerpts from the conversation that followed:

Your wife Poonam Pandey is in the ‘Lock Upp’ show…
Not worried at all. Our marriage has been beautiful and I remember only those things. Sometimes, it is just that 10 per cent is not good in a relationship. Unfortunately, everyone wants to focus on that imperfect 10 per cent. I took the saat pheras with her seriously. Whatever Poonam is saying, it’s sad, unnecessary and useless. She makes news out of nothing because she loves to be in the news.

But she had spoken much before the show that she underwent domestic violence

Let me ask you what is domestic violence (DV). Is it physical, verbal, emotional, psychological or mental? There are too many things here. Millions of men are suffering and they have no way to get out of this. A woman makes one call and the police will grab the man and put him in custody. But I have to go to the cops 20 times and yet they won’t do anything. What else can I say?

Are you saying that Poonam made a false complaint of DV against you and it was believed?

Let me tell you that she charged me with molestation and sexual assault on our honeymoon. And, this happened within a week of our marriage. An FIR was lodged. A few days later, she called me back and said that molestation is a big word and she had no idea what molestation is. It is beyond my comprehension how one can be charged with molestation on his honeymoon. Later, she took back the charge. As I said, nobody will believe the man; whatever he says doesn’t matter.

So, you went back to her?

I had never left her. This is a love story. Forgiveness is a part of it. So yeah, we got back together. Even she forgave me. Now, if she’s gonna talk like whatever she’s saying, I have to do that too. Else you would never get anything bad about my wife from me. I really don’t want to play a petty game. If I play a petty game, I too have lots to say.

Would you go to the ‘Lock Upp’ show if called?

I prefer to be behind the camera. But in this case, I will. More people will watch if I go.

Before we go further, what’s happening in your work sphere?

Poonam and I were supposed to go to Los Angeles in February 2022. But now, that has taken a backseat. February 2022 is gone. But I might still go, sometime next month. For now, I am shooting a web series and presently on location. Besides that, I am hoping and praying that Poonam does well in ‘Lock Upp’. I hope she wins. She might be lazy but she’s tenacious. If there’s any problem, I hope they call me; I can help her.

You said you’ll got back together. So what happened after that, which led to the separation?

Like I said, assault comes in various forms. And as I said, several men are suffering from this and at some point a man will snap. Whatever happened between us, I wasn’t the one who initiated.

If I am not wrong and reading you correctly in your previous answer, you’re saying that it was you who was in an abusive relationship…

I have been abused throughout my relationship. But 90 per cent of my relationship, she bombed me with love; I have never felt so loved in my life. So to say that I was in an abusive relationship, I disregard that.

You disregard that, but did I read you correctly?

Yes, you did. It was a beautiful relationship that’s never going to end. So, we both disregard that.

Are you saying there is a possibility of a patch-up?

She is my wife. Maybe she hasn’t taken the saat pheras seriously but as I told you, I have. Whenever she comes back to me, my heart will be open

Will you call her up and ask her to return?

No, we both have too much ego. And, there is one problem. My wife has all the qualities except loyalty. So until and unless I get that…

Loyalty is a very big word that you are using here…

Loyalty is not a big word; it’s the basis of any relationship. Without loyalty there is no trust and honesty, and then there’s failure. Good guys don’t make it. You have to be a bad boy. That’s how you survive. Has she ever complained about me cheating with anybody? I have had multiple relationships with celebrities bigger than Poonam. Has anybody accused me of assault? Never. Has Poonam been accused by other men of assault? Yes. So there’s a pattern here. And this is what the police told me; I had no idea about this.

I married Poonam because she told me that the avatar she has created for herself, nobody is going to marry her. But again, why is she talking about me in the show? It’s because she wants me to know that she’s thinking about me. We both bi**h about each other because we are still madly in love with each other.
