Former Miss India Niharika Singh has alleged that Nawazuddin Siddiqui is exploiting and disrespecting a woman to sell his autobiography.
Niharika was responding to Nawaz’s claim that he had an affair with her.
Nawaz had said he shared a passionate relationship with his Miss Lovely co-star which is mentioned in his biography An Ordinary Life which is written by Rituparna Chatterjee.
Niharika has though admitted that she had an affair with Nawaz but says that the details given by him are laughable.
"Nawaz and I had a brief relationship in 2009 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," she said.
