The excerpts from the biography of Nawazuddin Siddiqui, An Ordinary Life, made some shocking revelations about his alleged affair with the Miss Lovely actress Niharika Singh. However, the actress is considering taking a legal action against the actor whom she believes to have defamed her and also spoke about their relationship in public without her approval.
“When that happens, I will let you know,” she said to a leading Indian daily.
Moreover, Niharika Singh states that the information about her in the biography is untrue. She said, “Nawaz and I had a brief relationship 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 my bedroom with candles, I can only laugh. He obviously wants to sell his book.”
However, the sources close to Siddiqui mentioned that Niharika Singh had been informed about the story prior. “To suggest that he had done it without her knowledge is incorrect on her part. He’d written the book when he was in New York about a year ago, and he had made it a point to inform her about it categorically,” said the source.
Adding further, Siddiqui was surprised to see Niharika’s foul attitude towards the revelations. The source said, “He found her statement funny. But when a few media people landed up at his place for his comment, he realised that she’d stretched it too far.”
Going back to the excerpt from Siddiqui’s biography, he uncovered his relationship with Niharika Singh and also mentioned that one of his lovers would receive an email from her on his behalf. In the biography he stated, “For the very first time I went to Niharika’s house… When she opened the door, revealing a glimpse of the house, I was speechless with amazement. A hundred, or so it seemed, little candles flickered beautifully. She wore soft faux fur, looking devastatingly gorgeous, her beauty illuminated even more in the candlelight.
And I, being the lusty village bumpkin that I am, scooped her up in my arms and headed straight for the bedroom. We made passionate love. And just like that, out of the blue, I began a relationship with Niharika Singh, a relationship which I did not know then would last for almost one and a half years…”
The confessions made by Siddiqui in the biography terrified Niharika Singh who released a statement saying, “He has chosen to fabricate stories and manipulate a fleeting relationship. None of what he has written has been with my knowledge, let alone my consent. It is this very aspect of Nawaz that caused me to end my relationship with him in the first place. I have always maintained that he’s a brilliant actor. However, I had hoped these acting skills would have remained confined only to the screen. Still, I wish him well.”
