It looks like 2020 is not just an awful year for civilization on the whole but especially for Nawazuddin Siddiqui. His life and reputation have come under a heavy cloud when his wife Aaliya not only announced a divorce but also came forward with one morbid detail after another regarding his behavior towards her and their children.
All through the verbal attack Nawazuddin, hidden away from public glare in his native village, kept quiet. He told a close friend he hoped the crisis would blow over in a few weeks.
Even as the divorce drama continues to unfold there comes the shocking revelation from Nawazuddin’s niece. She alleges that Nawazuddin’s brother sexually abused her when she was 9.
These are serious issues and highly damaging allegations. Instead of addressing them headlong, Nawaz has chosen to hide from the harsh accusations.
Analysts in the film industry say more than his wife’s murky revelations it is the allegation of sexual misconduct against his brother that will harm Nawaz’s career.
“Of late he has been really lying low. The only release he had was the long-delayed Ghoomketu, Nawazuddin has no other film on hand as far as we know,” a source in the know informs.
It is sad to see such a celebrated talent trapped in such a murky situation.
