Bollywood star Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s former wife Aaliya Siddiqui has accused him of raping her.
Aaliya reportedly filed a lawsuit against the actor for allegedly forcing himself on her, according to Indian media.
She posted a video to Instagram, referring to the actor as “badtameez” (ill-mannered). She continued by claiming that he and his family were fighting for custody of Shora and Yaani.
Aaliya accused the star of misusing his influence and that he didn’t understand how to raise kids.
She also stated, while sobbing, “You can spend your money to buy as many people as you like, but you cannot take my kids. How will you keep them? Will they stay by your side? Even the definition of a father escapes them.”
Aaliya, formerly Anjali Kishore Panday, and the Gangs of Wasseypur star have had a tumultuous relationship for more than ten years. The pair gained media attention after Aaliyah filed for divorce in 2020. Then in 2021, after having a change of heart, she annulled the separation.
The Bollywood star and his family had already been the targets of some severe accusations made by her attorney.
Legal counsel for Aaliya, Rizwan Siddiquee, accused Nawazuddin and his family of not giving the latter access to food or restrooms
