There is one such celeb from the Bollywood land who has successfully managed to stay away from the media glare as and when his personal life is talked about. He has hit the headlines in the past for his superb performances on screen, but this time it’s all about his personal life. We are talking about none other than, the very famous and talent infused actor of the tinsel town, Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
The credit of his stealing the show these days goes to his biography An Ordinary Life, which he has penned down with Rituparna Chatterjee, who happens to be one of the prominent authors.
There are a number of explosions that his memoir has made already, and one amongst them is his revelation regarding an affair with Miss Lovely (2014) co-star, Niharika Singh. Here’s an excerpt from his book:
“For the very first time I went to Niharika’s house... I rang the doorbell, slightly nervous. When she opened the door, revealing a glimpse of the house, I was speechless with amazement. A hundred, or so it seemed, little candles flickered beautifully. She wore soft faux fur, looking devastatingly gorgeous, her beauty illuminated even more in the candlelight. And I, being the lusty village bumpkin that I am, scooped her up in my arms and headed straight for the bedroom. We made passionate love. And just like that, out of the blue, I began a relationship with Niharika Singh, a relationship which I did not know then would last for almost one and a half years.”

But this wild and publicising of their relationship is not going well with Niharika. She is very much upset about their relationship being exhibited like this. Here’s what she has to on this:
“Nawaz and I had a brief relationship in 2009 during the making of Miss Lovely, that lasted less than a few months. So today when he paints me as a woman in fur enticing him into her bedroom with candles, or desperately calling him and mailing other women on his behalf, I can only laugh.”
According to Niharika, it is a cheap publicity that he is doing for promoting his book. Not just that, she even accuses him of lying. She said:
“He obviously wants to sell his book and it would appear that he is willing to exploit and disrespect a woman just to do so. He has chosen to fabricate stories and manipulate a fleeting relationship.”
Also, she even went on to say that she wasn’t even informed before putting her life in the biography. Here’s what she revealed in an interview:
“None of what he has written has been with my knowledge, let alone my consent. It is this very aspect of Nawaz that caused me to end my relationship with him in the first place. I have always maintained that he’s a brilliant actor. However, I had hoped that these acting skills would be confined only to the screen. Still, I wish him well. This is all I have to say.”
In an interview with SpotboyE, Niharika revealed that she was unaware of his married status:
"I found out only after I was with him that he had a wife in the village whom he never spoke about. With Nawaz, it's difficult to tell who he's with because he would rarely give me a straight answer."
A source close to Niharika was quoted as saying:
“She is shocked with the details that Nawaz has let out in the book. Ever since the excerpts are out, Niharika is flooded with calls. When she read about the revelations he has made, she got a little upset. She felt that Nawaz kept her in the dark. Niharika was even contemplating on suing Siddiqui. But first decided to speak to Nawaz.”
Well, now this is taking some other turn so to say. What’s the truth and what’s not is best known to them only. For more updates on Bollywood and television celebs, stay tuned with us right here!
