Sunita Rajwar, the woman who is described as Nawazuddin Siddiqui's ‘first love’ has sent a legal notice to him for defaming her and ruining her image in front of her in-laws. In his memoir, the actor revealed intimate details of his relationship with her, indicating that they might have been in a close physical relationship. Even though he has now decided to withdraw the biography, Nawazuddin continues to face backlash from the ex’s he has spoken about in the book.
One of them was Sunita Rajwar, who is a television actress and a former classmate of Nawazuddin at National Institute of Film and Drama. The TV personality, in a Facebook post, recently slammed the actor for giving wrong information about why they broke up and now, has sent him a legal notice too.
Sunita has demanded a compensation of Rs 2 crore against an alleged attempt to destroy her image. The actress has also claimed to have not spoken to Nawaz since the last 16 years. She said, “I am taking legal action because the damage is already done and it’s irreversible.”
The actress also claimed that Nawaz used their relationship as a publicity stunt. As per the notice, Sunita was wrongly portrayed as someone ‘who drove Nawaz to think of committing suicide.’ It also claims that his mention that she dumped him because he was not successful is “a figment of his imagination”.
The book has become a “source of great mental agony” as it even hampered her relationship with those who are close to her. She adds, “The withdrawal of the memoir turned out to be another gimmick as the book is still in circulation.”
Sunita claims she wants an unconditional apology from Nawaz. The notice has also been given to co-author Rituparna Chatterjee and the publishers of the book. It states that Sunita would like to use the money for charity purpose.
