Nawazuddin Siddiqui gets the supports of his Sacred Games co-star Kubra Sait on the #MeToo allegation made by the actor’s ex Niharika Singh.
Nawazuddin #MeToo Allegation
Former Miss India 2005 and actor Niharika Singh penned down her detailed #MeToo experience in the glamour industry. Journalist Sandhya Menon shared the Niharika written story in a series of tweets.
She shared the story of her ex-boyfriend Nawazuddin Siddiqui, with whom she started dating back in 2009 starred together in the film Miss Lovely in 2012. She recalled the incident with Nawaz while they were dating. (She mentioned Nawaz as Nowaz in her statement), she writes;
“One morning, when I was home and he had been shooting all night, Nowaz 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,”

Kubra Sait Stands for Nawaz
Nawazuddin Siddiqui is yet to share his side of the story on the allegation. However, his co-star of “Sacred Games” Kubra Sait came forward to support of Nawaz in #MeToo allegation.
Kubra said that the sour relationships should not be aligned with #MeToo moment, she tweeted on Saturday;
“A relationship gone sour, isn’t #MeToo. Someone needs to recognise the toxic difference before we go picking sides.
The actress further said;
I stand by #NawazuddinSiddiqui or #Nowaz as a man. 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,”
Last year the actor announced to released his memoir in which he mentioned the names of two women – Niharika Singh and Sunita Rajwar – with whom he had been involved with. The memoir was later withdrawn by the publisher and shelved after receiving backlashes from the women.
