In an interview with TOI, Aaliya spoke that she raised the kids and expects their sole custody. She also mentioned the problem was Nawaz’s brother Shamas. Aaliya has also gone back to her original name Anjana Kishor Pandey. She said, “There are a lot of things that I don’t want to bring in the public domain as of now, but our problems started soon after we got married over a decade ago. Two months of lockdown gave me a lot of time to introspect. Self-respect is extremely important in a marriage. Woh meri khatam ho chuki thi (that didn’t exist for me), I didn’t have that. I was made to feel like a nobody, I always felt alone. His brother Shamas was also an issue. I have gone back to my original name, Anjana Kishor Pandey. I don’t want to be reminded that I am using someone’s identity for my benefit.” Also Read - #Ghoomketu Trends on Social Media After Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Film Releases on OTT Platform

There are no chances of reconciliation.” About the custody of their children, she said, “I have raised them and I want their custody”.

In another interview, Aaliya’s lawyer revealed that she has suffered a lot alone in Mumbai. The TOI quoted her lawyer saying, “She has suffered a lot. She is managing the kids all alone, she is in Mumbai and it’s very difficult for a single mother, as of now taking care of kids, single-handedly. When a father is there he acts like a pillar.” Further speaking about Aaliya’s decision to seek divorce amid lockdown, he said, “Things have been going on since quite some time. I mean in this lockdown, there’s no such timing.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Aaliya Siddiqui have a daughter, Shora Siddiqui, and a son Yaani Siddiqui who was born on the actor’s 41st birthday.
