Previous Actions By Aaliya against Siddiqui
On May 6, this year, Aaliya filed for divorce which was followed by the Raat Akeli Hai actor Siddiqui sending a legal notice to her. She was also accused by Siddiqui’s lawyer of maligning the actor’s name in media. At that time, she claimed that Nawazuddin has stopped paying her a monthly allowance to take care of their children to which Siddiqui’s lawyer replied that his client was paying the EMI and had attached screenshots of payment details with the claim.
Aaliya, later in July, further accused Siddiqui of infidelity. In an interview with Pinkvilla, she alleged that Nawaz used to have women over when she was expecting their first child. She further added that most of the news about infidelity used to come through Siddiqui’s brother Shamas, The Hindustan Times reported.
