The legal battle between Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his estranged wife, Aaliya Siddiqui has continued for some time. Recently, it was reported that Nawazuddin Siddiqui had filed a defamation suit in the Bombay High Court seeking Rs 100 crore damages from his former wife and brother, Shamsuddin Siddiqui. Aaliya also confirmed that divorce proceedings have begun, and the turmoil will soon end.
However, Aaliya's lawyer Rizwaan Siddiquee has stated the same. The statement has not been made public yet, but it is expected to shed some light on the current legal battle and the divorce proceedings. It is unclear whether the statement will reveal new information or reiterate the current state of affairs.
Talking to Etimes, Aaliya's lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee stated that Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his lawyers had sent him a draft of the settlement terms. He is now in the process of discussing the same with Aaliya.
He assured that from his end, he is trying to fully ensure that all disputes between the parties end once and for all and both the parties as parents concentrate on the well-being of their minor children and work towards securing their future. Rizwan also said they will urge the actor to withdraw the Rs 100 cr defamation suit as part of the settlement.
The lawyer added, “As far as the defamation suit filed by Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the High Court is concerned, I can only say that we have not been served any copy of the same as yet, but in any event, the suit was filed prior to the settlement proposed by Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and therefore the withdrawal of the same will automatically become an integral part of the settlement.”
According to reports in Etimes, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has filed a defamation suit in the Bombay High Court against his former wife, Aaliya and his brother Shamasuddin Siddiqui and has accused them of making defamatory and false statements against him. It is reported that the suit will likely be heard on March 30 by a single bench of Justice Riyaz Chagla.
