Nawazuddin Siddiqui is praised by all for his acting skill and intense roles. At the same time, the Bollywood actor has always been quite outspoken about his views. The actor has never minced his words when asked for opinions, and has often made headlines after getting into controversies.
Though Nawaz is not a star like the Khans, he has worked from the scratch and reached where he is today all by himself. Nawaz has just published his biography which details everything that he has been through to reach where he is today. In his biography, Nawaz also claimed that he had a relationship with his co-star in ‘Miss Lovely’ Niharika Singh.
Nawaz played his first lead role as Sonu Duggal in Miss Lovely, which premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, a role Siddiqui describes as his “most real performance so far”.
In his biography, Nawaz has revealed the intimate relationship he shared with Niharika:
I invited her over for a home-cooked meal, a mutton dish which was my specialty. She politely agreed and came over. The dish I had made for her turned out to be absolutely terrible. But she was too well mannered to say so. Not only did she eat everything that was on her plate, but she praised it as well.
Now you come to my house, Nawaz. I will cook mutton for you,’ she said warmly. 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 to 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 year.
The shocking revelation has made Niharika really angry. The actress lashed out at Nawaz and said that he is making false claims just to sell his book. Here’s what she said:
“Nawaz and I had a brief relationship 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.”
“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. 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 these acting skills would have remain confined only to the screen.”
