Nawazuddin Siddiqui has sent a legal notice to estranged wife, Aaliya. The actor's notice to his estranged wife alleges "engaging in fraud, willful and planned defamation" and "slander of character", as per a report in Times of India.
The notice adds that the actor had replied to Aaliya's divorce notice on May 19, within 15 days.
The Gangs of Wasseypur actor's wife had reportedly complained in a recent interview that she is unable to pay her children's school fees as Nawazuddin has stopped paying her the monthly allowance. The actor's lawyer has rejected such claims.
"EMI is still being paid by my client. Other children related expenses too. Divorce notice was replied to but again, she has stated the contrary in order to defame through this well-thought slander campaign," the Sacred Games star's lawyer Adnan Shaikh told the publication.
Furthermore, it has been stated that the actor in his notice has asked his wife not to make defamatory comments against him and also issue a written clarification for whatever she recently said.
