Speaking to Republic TV, lawyers of Aaliya, Abhay Sahai and Mohit Mudgal spoke about the legal notice seeking divorce that has been sent to Siddiqui:

"Due to unprecedented COVID-19 times, the notice could not be sent through speed post. It has been sent through email as well as WhatsApp. Mrs Siddiqui, our client, has also sent the notice through WhatsApp. However, Mr Siddiqui has not responded till date."

They added, "I think he is just keeping quiet regarding the notice and ignoring it. The notice has been sent claiming maintenance and divorce. I would not like to get into the details of the notice regarding what are the contents and what are the allegations, but let me tell you that the allegations are quite serious and those are very sensitive to Mr Siddiqui as well as his family members."

On another note, Nawazuddin seems to be going through a tough time in his personal life. Recently, he had taken to his Twitter handle where he had shared the tragic news of the demise of his younger sister. He further wrote in his tweet that the loss of his sister had led to his mother, who is 71 years old, to suffer from anxiety attacks twice. The actor also shared that he had to travel to Budhana during the lockdown for the same reason. 

On the work front, Nawazuddin was last seen in Housefull 4. His upcoming film, Ghoomketu is set to release on May 22nd on digital platforms. Ghoomketu is a comedy-drama film and the trailer of the film has left his fans intrigued to watch the movie.
