Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui finally broke his silence and responded to the allegations brought against him by his ex-wife, Aaliya Siddiqui. She had accused him of using his authority to take custody of her children and of raping her.
Recently, she shared a video from outside her bungalow stating that she was not allowed to enter his house. Nawazuddin wrote a long post on his Social Media handle with the caption: “This is not an allegation, but expressing my emotions.” He wrote: “I am termed as a bad guy everywhere because of my silence… The reason I have kept quiet is because all this tamasha will somewhere be read by small children. Social Media Platforms, Press & a bunch of people are really enjoying my character assassination on the basis of one-sided & manipulated videos.”
Nawazuddin added a few points when referring to his relationship with his former wife.
He wrote further: “There are few points I would like to express- 1. First of all me and Aaliya do not stay together since several years. We are already divorced, but we definitely had an understanding only for our kids.
2. Does anyone know why my kids are in India and not attending school for 45 days, wherein the school is sending me letters every day that it’s been too long an absence? My kids have been made a hostage for the past 45 days & are missing their schooling in Dubai.
3. She had abandoned the kids in Dubai for the last 4 months before calling them here on pretext of demanding money. On an average, she is been paid approx 10 Lakhs per month for past 2 years and 5–7 lakhs per month before moving to Dubai with my children, excluding the school fees, medical, travel, and other leisure activities. I have also financed her 3 films, costing me crores of rupees, just to help her set up her income stream, since she is the mother of my kids.” He continued. While explaining her allegations of not being allowed to enter the house, he added: “Whenever my children came to India during their vacation, they used to stay with their grandmother only. How could anyone throw them out of the house? I myself was not in the house during that time. Why didn’t she make a video of being thrown out, whereas she makes video of every random thing. She has dragged the kids in this drama, and she is doing all this to simply blackmail me, malign my reputation. Her intent to spoil my career and fulfil her illegitimate demands.”
He finished by saying… “Last but not the least – Any parent on this planet will never want their kids to miss out on their studies or hamper their future, they will always try to give their best of the best possible things. Whatever I am earning today is all for both my kids, and no person can change this. I love Shora & Yani and I will go to any extent to secure their well-being and their future. I have won all the cases so far and will continue to place my faith in the judiciary. Love is not to hold one back, but to let one fly in the right direction.”
