Apart from making headlines for his acting chops in numerous films, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has always been in news for his love life. The actor, who got married to Aaliya almost a decade ago, is headed for divorce after his wife sent him a notice demanding divorce and manintence. The notice was sent to the actor on May 7, 2020, via email and WhatsApp and they couldn’t send it through post due to the lockdown. In her latest, Aaliya, who has gone back to her old name Anjali Kishor Pandey, stated that there are no chances of reconciliation between the two and wants the sole custody of their kids.
While being married to Aaliya, Nawaz was in news his romantic relationship with Former Miss India Niharika Singh. The actress had opened up during the #MeToo storm in India. She had accused her then ex-boyfriend and Miss Lovely co-star Nawazuddin Siddiqui of grabbing her and not letting go when she invited him over. However, the things changed later and they began to date. However, Niharika in her later statement revealed that she discovered actor’s one lie after another.
In her statement, Singh had said, “In the case of Nawaz and I, it is easy to see how power dynamics changed through the years and with that, also the narrative. Nawaz being an aspirational, sexually repressed Indian man whose toxic male entitlement grew with his success, is hardly surprising. What is interesting to note is that despite not identifying as a Hindu, he carries deep caste prejudices since he chose to protect the honor of his 'Brahmin' wife after their names came up in the CDR scam while on the other hand, he felt very comfortable painting me as a seductress wearing faux for in his book, who he could sexually exploit, for public imagination.”
She had also added, “In 2009, I signed a small indie film titled 'Miss Lovely' with an all new cast and crew. I was required on the set for not more than 15 days. An actor named Nawazuddin Siddiqui who liked to call himself 'Nowaz' was signed for one of the lead roles. One morning, when I was home and he had been shooting all night, Nowaz sent me a text saying he was near my building. I invited him over and asked him to come and have breakfast with me. When I opened the door, he grabbed me. I tried to push him away but he wouldn't let go. After a little coercion, I finally gave in. I wasn't sure what to make of this relationship. He told me it was his dream to have a Miss India or an actress wife, just like Paresh Rawal and Manoj Bajpayee.” (ALSO READ: Nawazuddin Siddiqui's Wife Aaliya Seeks Divorce, Wants Sole Custody Of Their Two Kids; 'Meri Self-Respect Khatam Ho Chuki Thi')
