Aaliya’s lawyer has sent a legal notice to Nawazuddin Siddiqui via email and Whatsapp on May 7 but his response is awaited.

After being married for 10 years with two kids, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife Aaliya has sent him a legal notice seeking divorce and maintenance. As the news came out yesterday, the Bollywood actor’s brother, Shamas Siddiqui has now opened up to the development and said that he knew nothing about it.

Shamas said that he got to know of this only via news.

Meanwhile, Aaliya told Zee News that there were problems in their marriage and she alleged “serious ones”. 

Aaliya’s lawyer has sent a legal notice to Nawazuddin Siddiqui via email and Whatsapp on May 7 but his response is awaited.

“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 sent 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,” Aaliya’s lawyer said in a video message shared with Zee News.
