Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Niece Claims His Brother Sexually Harassed Her
The Bollywood actor’s niece Sasha says she had informed Nawazuddin Siddiqui about the torture but he refused to believe her.
Hindi-film star Nawazuddin Siddiqui has been in the news recently for his messy personal life. First, his wife Aaliya Siddiqui filed for divorce and revealed that the actor’s family was torturing her, and now his niece Sasha Siddiqui has filed a sexual harassment complaint against his brother.
According to Times of India, Sasha filed a complaint at a Delhi Police Station against Minazuddin Siddiqui for allegedly sexually harassing her since the age of nine.
“I have filed a complaint about sexual harassment by my uncle when I was nine years old. My parents were divorced when I was two years old, so I had a step mother. I was tortured a lot. As a child, I didn’t understand thinking it was my uncle, but when I grew up I realized it was a different kind of touch. There was violence too,” she mentioned.
In another interview with Pinkvilla, Sasha mentioned that she had informed the Sacred Games’ actor about the harassment but he had refused to believe her.
“When I told bade papa [Nawaz] about the molestation, I was very young back then. My parents had stopped me from going to school. When I told bade papa about it, he asked me, “what you want to do now?” I told him that I’m mentally and physically being tortured. But, bade papa reacted and asked me about the film I was watching [and said] that was prompting me to use such dialogues. He further refused to trust me and told me that nothing like this can happen. He told me “He is my brother. He cannot do such things.” Furthermore, he told me that maybe I was the wrong person here,” said Sasha.
On the other hand, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has refused to give any comments on the matter and is currently in Budhana with his 71-year-old mother.
