New Delhi:

Almost a year after sending actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui a divorce notice, his ex-wife Aaliya seems to have changed her mind. The trigger is the coronavirus, which Aaliya contracted – speaking to The Times Of India, she said seeing Nawazuddin looking after the couple’s children was a turning point. Last May, Aaliya Siddiqui sent the actor a divorce notice via WhatsApp and email, alleging that their marriage had been in trouble for a decade; Aaliya also accused Nawazuddin’s brother, Shamas, of violence. Now, Aaliya Siddiqui has withdrawn the divorce notice and has announced her intention to reconcile with 46-year-old Nawazuddin.

Speaking to The Times Of India, Aaliya Siddiqui said, “I was down with COVID, and Nawaz not only took care of the children, but also of me. It was despite what I said about him. He kept our differences aside and looked after me. Whenever I have been stressed, he has always helped me. This pandemic opened my eyes. I realized that what matters most is the well-being of your children and good health. Our children need us, and if their happiness lies in us being together, we can keep our disagreements aside. I have withdrawn the legal notice that I had filed. I am no longer asking for divorce and I want to give this marriage a chance. “

Despite the annulment of the divorce, the road to reconciliation could be long for the couple who still do not live together. Speaking to The Times Of India, Nawazuddin Siddiqui said his children, Yaani and Shora, were his priority. “She is still the mother of my children and we have shared a decade of our life together. I will always support her no matter what. Mera farz banta hai ke main unka khayal rakhu. Aaliya and I are not on the same page, we may not agree, but our children have always been my priority. They shouldn’t suffer because of us, ”he said.

Aaliya Siddiqui made headlines last year after sending Nawazuddin a divorce notice while in his hometown of Budhana in Uttar Pradesh. “I won’t be able to talk about the issues right away, but yes, we’ve had issues for ten years,” she told Indian Express – the couple married in 2009. Aaliya then joined Twitter to dispel rumors of an affair. “To begin with, let me make it clear that I am in ‘NO RELATIONSHIP’ with any MAN; and any media report that makes such claims is absolutely false,” she tweeted.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, known for his critically acclaimed work in the Wasseypur Gangs movies and the Sacred games web-series, was last seen in version 2020 Serious men. He is currently working on two projects – No Man’s Land and Jogira Sara Ra Ra.
