Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s recently released memoir has created quite a stir on the internet. The actor made shocking revelations on his love life, speaking openly about some very intimate moments from his past relationships. He not only discussed his past with his wife, but also brought into the limelight his past affairs, one of them being his relationship with Miss Lovely co-star Niharika Singh.
Nawazuddin spoke in length about her in his book, first opening up on how they met and got attracted on the film sets. He then went on to reveal intimate details of their ‘passionate’ affair, calling himself a ‘lusty village bumpkin, amazed by her beauty’. If that wasn’t enough, the actor went on to speak of how he two timed the actress with a Jewish girl he was in a relationship with before Niharika, and how Niharika stalked his email to eventually get rid of her. The relationship that according to the actor lasted for more than a year, eventually ended because he claimed to be ‘a selfish lover, who cared only for himself.’
While we have still been trying to digest everything that Nawazuddin spoke about in his memoir, Niharika has finally decided to break her silence, trashing the actor for his revelations. In an exclusive statement to Bollywoodlife.com, she said, “Nawaz and I had a brief relationship during the making of Miss Lovely that lasted less than a few months in 2009. So today when he paints me as a woman in fur enticing him into her bedroom with candles, or desperately calling him and mailing other women on his behalf, I can only laugh. He obviously wants to sell his book and it would appear that he is willing to exploit and disrespect a woman just to do so. He has chosen to fabricate stories and manipulate a fleeting relationship. None of what he has written has been with my knowledge, let alone my consent. It is this very aspect of Nawaz that caused me to end my relationship with him in the first place. I have always maintained that he’s a brilliant actor. However, I had hoped these acting skills would have remain confined only to the screen. Still, I wish him well. This is all I have to say.”
A source went on to reveal, “She is shocked with the details that Nawaz has let out in the book. Ever since the excerpts are out, Niharika is flooded with calls. When she read about the revelations he has made, she got a little upset. She felt that Nawaz kept her in the dark. Niharika was even contemplating on suing Siddiqui. But first decided to speak to Nawaz.”
Shocking right? Who ever thought Nawazuddin would ever find himself in a controversy surrounding his love life!
