Nawazuddin Siddiqui was recently summoned for investigations by the Thane city police related to Thane CDR case. Reportedly, he was spying on his wife through private detectives and also acquired her call detail records.However, in his latest Instagram post, he called all such rumours as "random allegations". The actor who was at her daughter's science exhibition in the school was questioned by the media for the same. He then took to his social media accounts to rubbish all such allegations.Sharing the pictures from the exhibition, he said, "Last evening, I was helping my daughter to prepare her school project Hydroelectric Power Generator & went to her school this morning for Project Exhibition. To my surprise, the media had questions about some random allegations on me #Disgust".The actor has reportedly failed to appear before the police for the investigations.
Known for his off-beat films and outstanding acting prowess, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one of the most sought-after actors of the Hindi film industry. The story of his struggle has inspired millions across the country. Having worked with the biggest superstars including Amitabh Bachchan and the Khans, Nawaz even went on to state that he does not want to think about the prominence of big stars like Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan as he considers them as colleagues when he is performing. Well, apart from his acting skills, the actor is also seen making it to the tabloids frequently, sometimes for his controversies and at times for other reasons. Here's taking a look at the times Nawazuddin made headlines:
Nawazuddin Siddiqui's book, 'An Ordinary Life: A Memoir', was under the spotlight even before it could reach bookshelves. First, his 'Miss Lovely' co-star Niharika Singh lashed out at him, after he documented their affair without her consent. Later, his first girlfriend Sunita Rajwar, took to Facebook to pen a note on how Nawaz's book was a bunch of “extraordinary lies”.A police case was also filed against the actor. After a volley of criticisms, the actor decided to withdraw the book. Apologising for hurting sentiments, he announced on Twitter, “I m apologising 2 every1 who's sentiments r hurt bcz of d chaos around my memoir #AnOrdinaryLife. I hereby regret & decide 2 withdraw my book.
Former beauty queen Niharika Singh had to share a lip lock with Nawazuddin Siddiqui in her film 'Miss Lovely', and that became the talk of the town then. Nawaz was apparently really nervous about kissing the beauty, and according to reports, the latter even handed him a breath freshener before they came close.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui allegedly had an affair with Sunita Rajwar before becoming romantically involved with Niharika Singh. Both of them were enrolled in National School of Drama. The actor, in his memoir, had said that he was in a relationship with Sunita and that one day she just returned from her parents' home and called off their relationship. He claimed that he was devastated and even had suicidal thoughts. However, Sunita claimed all this to be a "lie". She reportedly sent him a legal notice and asked for a compensation of Rs 2 crore for allegedly attempting to damage her image.
It’s a known fact that the Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ was initially supposed to have Chitrangada Singh cast opposite the actor. However, it was reported that Chitrangada left the film midway citing discomfort shooting intimate scenes with her co-star Nawazuddin. When the actress was asked to give a retake on the intimate scene with Nawaz, she allegedly refused to do it and barged out of the sets. Nawaz, however, supported the filmmaker and called Kushan a decent man and that he was incapable of such crass behaviour.
Ever since the talks of the biopic on Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb Thackeray surfaced, rumours were rife that Nawazuddin Siddiqui is being considered for the coveted role. However, following the whole controversy surrounding his book, gossip mills were abuzz about a possible ousting of Siddiqui from the proposed film in talks. According to reports, Shiv Sena, who was considering Nawazuddin for the role of Bal Thackeray in his upcoming biopic, had second thoughts about the actor. Contrary to the reports, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut clarified stating that "Nawaz (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) was the only choice". Directed by Abhijit Panse, the film will be shot in Hindi, Marathi and dubbed in English. It is slated for release on January 23, 2019.
