Aaliya’s lawyer said in a video message to Zee News, “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. Mrs Siddiqui, our client, has also said the notice through 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.”
Nawazuddin and Aaliya have been married for over a decade and also have two kids together. While no response has been received from Nawaz’s side, Aaliya’s lawyer also said that legal action will be taken if the actor fails to respond within the next fifteen days.
Meanwhile, Nawazuddin is currently in his hometown in Uttar Pradesh’s Budhana. He was issued a pass to travel to Budhana from Mumbai amid lockdown restrictions. The family is currently under quarantine. They have been asked to quarantine themselves for 14 days by the administration.
On the work front, Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be next seen in ‘Ghoomketu’ which will have a digital release on ZEE5.
