The Bollywood fans got another shock yesterday, as the former Miss India, Niharika Singh accused one of the finest actors of our Bollywood industry, Nawazuddin Siddiqui under the ongoing #MeToo movement.

Niharika Singh took to twitter to share her experience with the Nawaz, who she dated for a while. Niharika Singh came into highlight last year when Nawazuddin courted controversy during the launch of his autobiography.

In her long hard-hitting post Niharika called out her ex-boyfriend Nawazuddin Siddiqui and T-series spearhead Bhushan Kumar. Talking about Nawazuddin Siddiqui she wrote :

“One morning, when I was home and he had been shooting all night, Nawaz sent me a text saying he was near my building. I invited him over and asked him to come and have breakfast with me. When I opened the door, he grabbed me. I tried to push him away but he wouldn’t let go. After a little coercion, I finally gave in. I wasn’t sure what to make of this relationship. He told me it was his dream to have a Miss India or an actress wife, just like Paresh Rawal and Manoj Bajpayee. I found his little confession funny but endearing.

She added :
“In the next couple of months, I began to discover one lie after another. Nawaz had engaged multiple women, giving each one a different story; one of them even called me from his phone and started yelling at me. I also found out about a woman he’d married in Haldwani, whose family had sued him for making dowry demands. I told him to clean up his mess, be honest with himself and everyone around him; also that I did not want to see him again.” 

In her post, Niharika also wrote how Nawazuddin Siddiqui told lies in his autobiography ‘An Ordinary Man’ and he had to withdrew it because she and another girl took legal actions against him for writing false stories about their relationship.

Here, read the full side of her story :

This #MeToo accusation has once again divided the internet into two parts, one supporting the actor and the other one supporting Niharika Singh. While many are slamming the actor, his co-star Kubra Sait, who played his love interest ‘Kukoo’ in Sacred Games, has come out in support of him.

Taking a stand for Nawazuddin, she explained how a relationship gone wrong can’t be categorized under the ‘#MeToo’ and there should be a thick line drawn between failed relationship and sexual harassment.

Here, have a look at her tweet :

The tweet read:
A relationship gone sour, isn’t #MeToo someone needs to recognise the toxic difference before we go picking sides.
I stand by #NawazuddinSiddiqui or #Nowaz as a man.

The tweet read:
I stand by the fact that although Niharika Singh may have had a tough time in the industry, categorising her once personal relationship as a #MeToo statement is incorrectly placed. We as humans are flawed. That isn’t gender specific.”

Soon, twitterati started trolling and slamming Kubra as well. Tired of all the trolling she tweeted :

The tweet read:
“Its interesting how when one doesn’t agree with a discussion or a point of view – it steamrolls into an argument.”

Meanwhile, Nawazuddin is yet to open up about the issue. We really wonder what he has to say about this.
