Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife Aaliya, earlier this month, sent him a legal notice seeking divorce. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, the news came as a shock to the actor.
Nawazuddin is currently staying in Budhana, Uttar Pradesh, with his family members after his younger sister passed away a few months ago. The actor’s 71-year-old mother is not doing well and has suffered from several anxiety attacks, since the passing of her daughter. On the other hand, Aaliya, with their children, has been staying with her family in Jabalpur during the lockdown.

According to reports, the two had been facing problems in the marriage, but the actor hoped to win back Aaliya’s trust, and hence the demand for a divorce came as a shock to him. The news is currently being kept from Nawazuddin’s mother, given her weak state of health. A source told Bollywood Hungama, “More than himself, Nawaz is worried about his mother. The news of his impending divorce is being kept a secret from Nawaz’s mother for now. But for how long? There is no Eid celebrations in Nawaz’s household this year. There is nothing to celebrate.”
Aaliya Sent Legal Notice On May 7
After consulting with her family and with their support Aaliya decided to send Nawazuddin a legal notice via email and WhatsApp on May 7, but the actor is yet to respond. “I think he is just keeping quiet regarding the notice and ignoring it. The notice has been sent claiming maintenance and divorce. 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,” the lawyer was quoted as saying by Pinkvilla.
