The mug-slinging between Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his ex-wife Aaliya Siddiqui only seems to intensify with every passing day. Aaliya has had no qualms about opening a can of worms, pertaining to her turbulent marital life with the Sacred Games actor. In her last video, Aaliya accused him of throwing her out of their Mumbai house along with her kids. While Nawazuddin has so far maintained a stoic silence, he’s no longer letting things slide.
In a recent Instagram post, Siddiqui addressed the claims made by his estranged wife and padded them up with substantial proof. He revealed that his relationship with Aaliya had ended a long time ago and they are officially divorced. However, on the grounds of being parents of two kids, a mutual understanding was agreed upon at the time of the split.
Here’s What The Actor’s Post Read:
While We’re Yet To Hear Aaliya’s Side Of The Story To This Revelation, Here’s A Peek At Their Relationship Timeline
In a memoir, the Gangs of Wasseypur actor mentioned that he was in head-over-heels love with a woman named Anjali. There were explosive fights, but things eventually bounced back to normal. However, they parted ways and Nawaz married someone else. Unfortunately, things hit a rough patch yet again, and it ended up in a bitter divorce. As fate had it, his first love returned and they both decided to get married in 2011. Anjali reportedly changed her name to Aaliya during their nikaah ceremony. Roughly about 7 years later, in 2017, reports of potential trouble in their paradise began to emerge. In 2020, Aaliya filed for a divorce and didn’t want to work on giving her marriage a second shot anymore.
Fast forward to 2021, and she had a change of heart and withdrew her request for divorce. In a statement, she said, “I was down with COVID, and Nawaz not only took care of the children but also me. This was despite what I said about him. He kept our differences aside and looked after me. Whenever I have been under stress, he has always helped me. This pandemic was an eye-opener. I realized what matters the most is the well-being of your children and good health. Our children need us, and if their happiness lies in us being together, we can keep our disagreements aside. I have withdrawn the legal notice that I had filed. I don’t seek divorce anymore, and I want to give this marriage a chance.”
