Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife Aaliya Siddiqui has said that she wants to give their marriage a second chance and become a “happy family once again”. She had filed for divorce from the actor in May 2020.
Aaliya told indianexpress.com, “I had tested COVID-19 positive a few weeks ago, and couldn’t be with my children. During this time, I saw a different side of Nawazuddin, that of a caring father and husband. While I couldn’t be with our children, he took care of them and did everything for them. He looked after them so well. He would also check on how I am doing as I was unwell. He has really impressed me and proved that he is such a good father to our children. The kids also love him, so I want us to be a happy family once again.”
Aaliya, who has now tested negative for the coronavirus recently, added, “He (Nawazuddin) took such good care of us all through the lockdown. Maybe he never came across something like this in his life, so he never got the opportunity to take responsibility. But, now things are different, he is supportive and caring, and loving towards us. He is so busy with work, and yet he is making time for us. So, we have decided to keep all our differences aside and are looking forward to a beautiful future together for the sake of our children.”
After Aaliya speaking up about getting back together with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the actor too confirmed the same, saying that he will always support her no matter what. The Manto actor told Bombay Times on Saturday, “I prefer not to talk about my personal life, and I have never spoken ill of anyone. I don’t let negativity and hatred get to me. She is still the mother of my children, and we have shared a decade of our life together. I will always support her no matter what.”
The Manto actor also spoke up about wanting to be a “good father”, he said, “It is my responsibility to provide for them. Aaliya and I are not on the same page, we may not agree with each other, but our children have always been my priority. They should not suffer because of us. Relationships have their ups and downs, but that shouldn’t affect the children. I want to be a good father.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui and wife Aalia Siddiqui have two children, an eleven-year-old daughter and a six-year-old son.
