Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s look as the controversial writer Sadat Hassan Manto in Nandita Das’s recent short film is currently creating a lot of buzz. However, recently reports of his fallout with wife Anjali Siddiqui started doing the rounds and seems like an article by a leading magazine did not go well with the actor. According to a leading daily, Nawazuddin has sent out a legal notice to a leading magazine over an article posted by them on March 8, 2017. In the article, the actor is shown with a “mystery” woman, with the write-up implying that he is dating her.
In the notice, the actor is believed to have written that the article has caused “unwarranted and uncalled for mental torture, trauma and inconvenience” to him. Siddiqui’s legal team has given seven days to the magazine to apologize and release a clarification on the same. The Manjhi actor has also denied rumours about trouble in his marital paradise.
At a recent event, the actor was asked his opinion on the ongoing nepotism debate. Responding to it, Nawazuddin said, “I don’t think nepotism exists in Bollywood otherwise I could not have been in this position today. Good work and talent may take the time to get recognized but always earns respect.”
On the work front, Nawazuddin Siddiqui will next be seen playing the role of a contract killer in his upcoming Babumoshai Bandukbaaz. The film is directed by Kushan Nandy, the movie stars Bidita Bag, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Roopa Ganguly, Tota Roy Chowdhury and Biswajit Chakraborty in pivotal roles.
