"I will not let my innocent children go into those heartless hands."
In a video, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s estranged wife Aaliya Siddiqui accused him of raping her.
It is reported that Aaliya has lodged a case against the actor for allegedly forcing himself onto her.
She published a video on her Instagram, calling the actor “badtameez” (ill-mannered).
She went on to accuse him and his family of demanding custody of their children, Shora and Yaani.
Aaliya accused the star of “misusing” his influence and that he didn’t understand how to raise children.
She tearfully added: “You can buy as many people as you want with your money but you cannot take my children.
“Where will you keep them? Will they stay with you?
“They don’t even know what a father is.”
In the caption, Aaliya wrote: “A great actor, who tries to be a great human being often!
“A heartless mother who calls my innocent child illegitimate and this man keeps quiet.
“A rape complaint (with proof) was filed at Versova police station yesterday.
“Whatever happens, I will not let my innocent children go into those heartless hands.”
For more than ten years, Nawazuddin and Aaliya’s relationship has been rocky.
Once Aaliya filed for divorce in 2020, the pair gained media attention. Then in 2021, after having a change of heart, she annulled the separation.
The Bollywood actor and his family had already been the targets of some severe accusations made by her lawyer.
Rizwan Siddiquee, Aaliya’s legal counsel, accused Nawazuddin and his family of not giving her access to food or restrooms.
It is not the first time that Nawazuddin has faced shocking accusations.
His brother Shamaas Nawab Siddiqui accused him of “buying” his housekeeper’s justification after she offered an apology to the actor for a video she had uploaded.
Sapna Robin Masih, Nawazuddin’s housekeeper, claimed in a video that the actor had “abandoned” her in Dubai.
But, in a subsequent video, she claimed that the former assertion was untrue and that she had made it under duress.
In response to the events, Shamaas posted an article on Twitter about Sapna’s statement modification.
He tweeted: “This is scripted.
“How many people will you buy? Your bank balance might get exhausted.
“Now your work is also messed up and Rs 150 crore of the film industry has been stuck due to stalled films.
“That’s right – only those who sell junk, middlemen will take him to hell.”
