Aaliya Siddiqui wants sole custody for kids
In an interview with Times of India, Nawaz’s wife Aaliya said, “There are a lot of things that I don’t want to bring in the public domain as of now, but our problems started soon after we got married over a decade ago. Two months of lockdown gave me a lot of time to introspect. Self-respect is extremely important in a marriage. Woh meri khatam ho chuki thi (that didn’t exist for me), I didn’t have that. I was made to feel like a nobody, I always felt Alone. His brother Shamas was also an issue. I have gone back to my original name, Anjana Kishor Pandey. I don’t want to be reminded that I am using someone’s identity for my benefit.”
She continued, “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.” Speaking about wanting sole custody of her kids, she said, “I have raised them and I want their custody.”
Nawazuddin and Aaliya have been married for over a decade and also have two kids together.
