Wife of the Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has sent him a legal notice, claiming maintenance and divorce!
Nawazuddin Siddiqui had recently travelled to his hometown to look after her ailing mother. Now the actor has received another blow as his wife has filed for a divorce. Aaliya Siddiqui has sent him a legal notice claiming maintenance and divorce.
Talking to BT she revealed how the lockdown gave her time for introspection after which she made the decision. She said, “Self-respect is extremely important in a marriage. Woh meri khatam ho chuki thi, I didn’t have that. I was made to feel like a nobody, I always felt alone. His brother Shamas was also an issue. I have gone back to my original name, Anjana Kishor Pandey. I don’t want to be reminded that I am using someone’s identity for my benefit.”
Adding that she is firm on her decision of not wanting the marriage anymore, she said that there are no chances of reconciliation. Aaliya is also hoping to get the sole custody of her two children.
Her lawyer informed BT, “We sent the legal notice to Nawazuddin on May 7, 2020, via email and WhatsApp, as we couldn’t send it through post due to the lockdown. Our client, Mrs Siddiqui, has also sent him the notice, but he hasn’t responded till date. The notice claims maintenance and divorce. I would not like to get into the contents of the notice, as the allegations are serious and sensitive to the Siddiqui family.”
Meanwhile, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is in his hometown with his family.
