This year has been a great one for actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. He had three digital releases – Ghoomketu, Raat Akeli Hai and Serious Men of which the last-mentioned worked incredibly well in his favour. While the work front was going incredibly well, he had to face several low points in personal life. On the family front, his wife Aaliya Siddiqui filed for divorce and his niece called him out for turning a blind eye towards her sexual abuse by his younger brother.
When the actor was asked by Pinkvilla about his family dispute, the actor with much hesitance said, “I genuinely can’t speak about my personal issues here. But yes, I hope that I fulfill all my responsibilities towards my kids, in every way possible. Main apne beti ko pyaar bohut karta hoon. But baki personal life ke baare mein main kuch nahi kehna chahta.” (I love my daughter a lot. But I don’t want to talk about my personal life.)
Further, when the actor was asked about his niece Sasha Siddiqui’s allegation of him turning a blind eye towards her sexual abuse by his brother, he refused to comment.
Earlier this year, Nawaz’s wife took the legal route and filed for divorce. Their legal battle turned into an ugly public spat where both sides have accused each other of serious issues. Meanwhile, his niece Sasha came out and accused Nawaz’s younger brother Minazuddin Siddiqui of sexually abusing her for years. Nawaz has disregarded her claims as filmy.
