Controversy with his wife named “Aaliya”
Aaliya is the wife of Nawazuddin Siddiqui. They have a daughter named Shora and a son named Yaani.
Aaliya reveals Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s controversial 2017 autobiography. The title of the autobiography is “AN ORDINARY LIFE” and that was withdrawn.
Aaliya Siddiqui decided to put an end to her 10-year long marriage with Nawazuddin Siddiqui and sent the actor a legal notice despite the lockdown. Seeking divorce and the custody of her kids. With Nawaz being absent from home most times, Aaliya sought help from her niece from Jabalpur. “I have been managing things alone for years. My niece stays with me while he used to visit us but it was never like a proper husband, who returns home from the shoot. When I have stepped out, my niece is with the kids and vice-versa. We have never left the kids with a maid. It has been nearly 4-5 years like this.”
Nawaz once insulted her in front of actor “Manoj Bajpayee”
Aaliya, who has changed her name to Anjana Kishore Pandey has said
“A few celebrities have visited my house like Manoj Bajpayee. At that time also I was being humiliated. I was cooking for Nawaz and tried to strike a conversation and he was like ‘tumko baat karna nahi aata, tum logon ke samne baat mat kiya karo. (Meaning:you don’t know how to talk, please don’t speak in front of people) – these were his words.” She tweeted:
To begin with let me clarify that I am not into "ANY RELATIONSHIP" with any MAN; and any media report which make such claims, are absolutely false.
It appears that some section of the media have manipulated with my photograph to make such ridiculous claims to divert attention.

In her latest interview with Times of India, Aaliya has alleged that Nawaz was neither a good father nor a good husband. She has accused the actor of disrespecting her in front of others. She was having difficulty accepting her as a wife in front of the media.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui thought he was doing a great thing by revealing these intimate details in his autobiography, Aaliya told Times of India in an interview,
“When a person tries to be smart toh Woh Ulta pad jata hai (being cunning often backfires). If you are truthful then maybe the world would accept you. You wrote about your girlfriend and affairs, I told him not to write about someone’s personal life and we have also fought over it but he believes that at times, such things make you ‘Mahan’ (great). They don’t make you ‘Mahan’ but your character is revealed.”

Aaliya Siddiqui added,
“She is a girl working in the industry, how can you ruin someone’s image with whom you’ve been in a relationship? I have seen his world and have decided to stand for myself. Why should I save his respect when he doesn’t respect anyone. How long will a person suffer? It has been 10 years. What you see is not always the truth, to know him you have to spend time with him, which I have done.”
Aaliya is now awaiting his response after she sent him a legal notice seeking maintenance and sole custody of their children, owing to discord in their marriage earlier this month. The notice was sent to him through both WhatsApp and email states a report by Hindustan Times.
