Back in September 2020, Pandey had filed a complaint against Bombay in Goa. This was during the couple's honeymoon. Speaking to media, Pandey had then said that her relationship has always been abusive and that she has ended up in a hospital from injuries multiple times. Although the pair got hitched last year, they have been reported to be together for a long time.
The Aa Gaya Hero actress had then said she believed marriage would change things and Bombay would stop getting possessive and insecure. The advertisement filmmaker had been granted bail on a surety of Rs. 20,000 in just a day. At that time, Pandey had announced she would be breaking off their marriage. However, the couple resolved their issues soon thereafter.
