Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his estranged wife, Aaliya, have been in the news lately due to their separation and ongoing legal battle. The court had recently ordered Aaliya and their two children to return to Dubai so that the kids could resume school. Meanwhile, Aaliya's first film as a producer, "Holy Cow," was released in theatres in August 2022 and has now been released on an OTT platform. Nawazuddin even has a cameo in the film.
In a recent interview with Etimes, Aaliya spoke about working with her estranged husband in the film. She stated she had no qualms about working with Nawazuddin, as she did not want her career to suffer. Aaliya believes that personal life should not affect professional life, and if Nawazuddin fits a particular role as an actor, she wouldn't mind approaching or working with him.
Aaliya said, "On a personal level, Nawaz and I are very far from each other, but you should never let your professional life get affected by your personal life. So, if, as an actor he fits a part, I wouldn't mind approaching him or working with him. While a lot is happening in my personal life, I'm making sure that work stays on track."
Although a lot is happening in her personal life, Aaliya is making sure that her work stays on track. She further added that Nawazuddin's performance had lifted the film above its potential. Although it is a small film that didn't get good backing, the OTT platform has given it a good reach. Aaliya is pleased to have an excellent platform to showcase her work.
On the work front, Nawaz's several of his complete projects, including Sudhir Mishra's Afwah, Sai Kabir's Tiku Weds Sheru, Navaniat Singh's Noorani Chehra and Kushan Nandy's Jogira Sa Ra are on hold as Nawaz is unable to promote them.
