"Now things have escalated beyond repair.”
Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife Aaliya Siddiqui has filed for divorce stating there are “several reasons” behind the breakdown of their marriage.
Speaking to Zee News, Aaliya’s lawyer revealed that a notice was sent to Nawazuddin, however, they have not received a response. The lawyer explained:
“Yes, it is to confirm that we have sent a legal notice to Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The notice was sent on behalf of Mrs Aaliya Siddiqui on May 7, 2020.
“Due to unprecedented Covid-19 times, the notice could not be sent through speed post. It has been sent through email as well as WhatsApp.
“However, Mr Siddiqui has not responded till date. I think he is just keeping quiet regarding the notice and ignoring it.
“The notice has been sent claiming maintenance and divorce. I would not like to get into the details of the notice regarding what are the contents and what are the allegations.
“But let me tell you that the allegations are quite serious and those are very sensitive to Mr Siddiqui as well as his family members.”
The couple tied the knot in 2010 and share two children. However, in 2017, it was alleged that the couple’s marriage was suffering.
Despite several reports, Aaliya and Nawazuddin refuted divorce speculations during that time.
Speaking to ABP News, Aaliya explained the reason behind her choice for divorce. She said:
“There is not one but several reasons behind my problems with Nawaz. And all these reasons are very serious.”
She continued to mention that two months ago, she changed her name back to Anjana Anand Kishore Pandey and is also known as Anjali.
She further added:
“The problems between Nawaz and me have been going on since 2010, after one year of our marriage.
“I have been handling everything but now things have escalated beyond repair.”
Recently, Nawazuddin took to Twitter to reveal that he has travelled to his hometown, Budhana due to family reasons. He tweeted:
“Due to the recent loss of my younger sister, my mother, who is 71 years old got an anxiety attack twice.
“We have followed all the guidelines given by the State Government. We are #HomeQuarantined at our hometown Budhana. Please #StaySafe #StayHome.”
As of now, it appears Nawazuddin Siddiqui has decided not to respond to the divorce notice. We wait to find out more.
