Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is currently quarantining with his family in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar district, has been served with a legal notice claiming maintenance and divorce from his wife of 11 years, Aaliya.
“There are a lot of things that I don’t want to bring in the public domain as of now, but our problems started soon after we got married over a decade ago. Two months of lockdown gave me a lot of time to introspect”, Nawazuddin’s wife Aaliya revealed to Bombay Times.
According to Aaliya, Nawazuddin’s brother Shamas was one of the ‘problems’ in the marriage, and that she has now begun using her original name, Anjana Kishor Pandey. She has demanded sole custody of both their children, “I have raised them and I want their custody”, she told the leading daily.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Aaliya got married in 2009 and are parents to a daughter named Shora and son Yaani Siddiqui.
