Aaliya Siddiqui, the estranged wife of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, has defended her new relationship and provided details about her “companion” in a recent interview. Aaliya gained attention after she posted a picture on Instagram with her new partner. She explained that her “companion” is an Italian man working in the IT sector in Dubai. She also emphasised that he has no connection to her broken marriage with Nawazuddin.
According to Aaliya, they met a year ago at a mutual friend’s party in Dubai. She described him as intelligent, simple, respectful, loving, and caring. He has been a significant emotional support for her over the past year. Aaliya also mentioned that he is learning Hindi and teaching her French and Italian and that he has expressed a desire to visit India in the near future.
In an exclusive interview with ETimes, Aaliya said, “No one can judge my character on the basis of how happy I feel. I filed for divorce two years ago, long before I met my companion (the man she shared a picture with on Instagram earlier this week), so he has nothing to do with my broken marriage has ended, but we talk for the sake of our kids. I want Nawaz to do well in life. Our divorce case is still on. I have struggled for 19 years. Had I been calculative about these things, I wouldn’t have shared about my (new) relationship on social media… I was mentally exhausted. I have finally moved on, and I am in a happy space.”
Regarding her previous accusations of harassment against Nawazuddin and his family during their separation, Aaliya had reached a settlement with him amid a property dispute after he filed a defamation suit against her. The Bombay High Court had previously encouraged them to resolve their differences amicably, considering the best interests of their minor children.
