Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Aaliya got married in 2009 and they share two children with each other, Shora and Yaani. Nawazuddin ’s first marriage with Anjali Siddiqui failed and this was his second one. Aaliya has recently filed a divorce via WhatsApp and email after the couple had been living separately for the last 4 years. The notice for the divorce was sent on May 7, 2020. She claimed that people believed the couple were leading a content life together but he used to live at his Yari road office and visited the houses frequently.
Aaliya expressed her troubles to the media about the relationship is toxic and abusive. Moreover, she stated that Nawazuddin lacked the qualities of a good father. “He used to be absent during most of the events in the building and I had to answer to everyone. He never performed the duties of a father properly. He had time but he never spent it with me and our kids. I used to get mentally disturbed seeing his rude behaviour towards me and children,” she told.
She expressed huge discomfort from his younger brother, Shamas Nawab Siddiqui and the family. She had encountered both emotional and physical abuse which drained her self-respect. In addition, she also mentioned that his brother spied on her and monitored all her activities.
“He had never raised his hands on me, but the shouting and arguments had become unbearable. You could say though that only that was left. Yes, but his family has mentally and physically tortured me a lot. His brother had even hit me. His mother and brothers and sisters-in-law used to stay with us only in Mumbai. So, I’ve been bearing a lot for too many years. His first wife had also left him for this reason alone,” she said.
Aaliya also demanded full custody of the children backing up by saying that she took care of them alone and there was barely any support from Nawazuddin’s side. She also confirmed that there are no chances of them getting back together. “I want to go with the flow. I haven’t thought much about the future, but I don’t want this marriage anymore. There are no chances of reconciliation. I have raised them and I want their custody.”
