The Nawazuddin Siddiqui-Aaliya case is taking an ugly turn each day with the latest being the involvement of a media professional named Peeyush Pandey with whom a few media outlets insinuated that Aaliya was having an affair with and that was also one of the reasons for the separation. However, Peeyush refuted claims of any affair in an interview with the Bombay Times. Here’s what he said:

Man linked to Nawazuddins wife responds to allegations

I got to know about their divorce notice through the media. I am the scapegoat here. These link-up rumours are completely baseless and ridiculous! Why am I being dragged into this? I have nothing to do with this. People around them know about their feud and what is going on between them (estranged relationship). I want to stay away from it. Why is my name and reputation being tarnished? I am in a relationship with someone, and this sort of rumour is extremely distasteful. This puts me in a spot with my family and friends. Luckily, my better half is aware of the truth as she is also friends with Aaliya. I will consult my lawyer as to what needs to be done to safeguard my interests.

I met Aaliya through Nawaz. I have no professional engagement with him today but I have worked closely with Nawaz for almost three years in the past. I used to handle him as a talent manager. I was the one who took his film Manjhi — The Mountain Man to Dubai and released it there. He wanted to open an acting school in Dubai. I helped him with that as well. His brother Shamas wanted to release a short film in Cannes, I went with him to look into marketing, etc. I have always supported them. I respect Nawaz as an artiste till date. He is a great actor and has struggled a lot. Success stories like him are rare to find. But, the current situation is discomforting, and I don’t want to be associated with this.

We sincerely hope the two come out of this divorce with as much dignity as possible.
