Earlier, Aaliya spoke about the allegations on her husband in an interview with PinkVilla in which she mentioned that when she was pregnant with her first child, Nawaz used to have women over his residence. In the interview, she was qouted saying, “When I was pregnant, I had to drive all by myself for check-ups. My doctor used to tell me that I’m mad and I’m the first lady who’s come alone for delivery. My labour pain started and Nawaz and his parents were there. But when I was in pain, my husband is not with me. He was talking to his girlfriend on calls. I knew everything because there used to be itemised statement of phone bills.”
