Nawazuddin Siddiqui's wife Aaliya has sent the actor a legal notice demanding a divorce and maintenance from him over issues related to their married life.
In a recent interview, Aaliya's lawyer Abhay Sahay said that the legal notice was sent to Nawazuddin on May 7 through email and WhatsApp, but he is yet to respond, reported Hindustan Times. The couple got married in 2008.
"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," Aaliya's lawyer said in a video message shared with Zee News.
Aaliya told ABP News about the reason for divorce, “There is not one reason but several reasons behind my problems with Nawaz. And, all these reasons are very serious.”
“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,” she said.
Meanwhile, Nawazuddin and his family have been quarantined in his house in Budhana in Muzaffarnagar district.
"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 issued by the state government. We are #HomeQuarantined at our hometown Budhana. Please #StaySafe #StayHome," he tweeted on Monday.
