Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's wife files for divorce

Bollywood leading actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife Aaliya has filed for divorce. She has also sent him a notice seeking maintenance and has made some ‘serious allegations’ against him.

In a recent interview, Aaliya’s lawyer Abhay Sahay said that the legal notice was sent to Nawazuddin on May 7 through email and WhatsApp, but he is yet to respond. The couple got married in 2008. In 2017, it was reported that their marriage had hit a rough patch, but the couple had refuted divorce rumours back then.

“I would not like to get into the details of the notice regarding what are the contents and what are the allegations, but let me tell you that the allegations are quite serious and those are very sensitive to Mr Siddiqui as well as his family members,” Aaliya’s lawyer said in a video message shared with Zee News.

“The problems between Nawaz and me have been going on since 2010, after one year of our marriage. I have been handling everything but now things have escalated beyond repair,” she said.

Meanwhile, Siddiqui and his family have been quarantined in his house in Budhana in Muzaffarnagar district.
