Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family have been accused of cruelty and domestic abuse by his wife Aaliya

Aaliya has petitioned the Bombay High Court to get Nawazuddin’s FIR quashed.

The wife of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, has accused him and his family of treating her cruelly and physically abusing her. Following the filing of a FIR against her for breaking into his home after returning from Dubai, his wife, the actor Aaliya, claimed that Nawazuddin had exerted pressure on Mumbai’s Versova Police.

In the meantime, the Andheri court is also handling a domestic violence case, and notices have already been sent to everyone involved, including Nawazuddin. Police called Aaliya Siddiqui for the incident, and according to the FIR, she entered Nawazuddin’s home while he was away from Mumbai on a movie shoot. Aaliya’s attorney has asserted that the actor pressed for a quick filing of the case.

Aaliya has petitioned the Bombay High Court to have Mehrunisa Siddiqui, the mother of Nawazuddin, to withdraw the FIR that she had filed.

The separated wife has so far filed four complaints, including ones under sections 498A and 509 of the IPC for the mistreatment of women by her husband and his family. Aaliya had previously said that the pair had been living apart for more than four years and that the star would not meet their children despite her requests.

“I have not told anything to the kids, though they are upset and keep asking me ‘papa kahan hai?’, ‘kahan shoot kar rahe hai?’ I keep telling them that he is shooting in New York, US but then for how many years should I do that?” she said in an interview with TOI.

She had also mentioned that even being in Mumbai working at his office, Nawaz never visited their kids. “When I tell him to visit the kids, he is like I am busy, have people to meet. So I am forced to tell the kids that papa is busy with a shoot,” she stated. The couple has been in the headlines since 2020 after Aaliya made some revelations about their marriage. In 2020, the actor’s wife accused him of being an absent father, disrespecting her in public.
