Controversies aren't really ending for Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Though he hasn't reacted to his wife's allegations yet, the actor did speak about his niece accusing his younger brother of sexual misconduct. But the reply he had was 'no comments'.

In her recent interaction with Pinkvilla, his niece has elaborated on how the actor's family initially refused to believe her claims simply 'cos her mother was a Hindu. "My mother is Punjabi and she left us after facing domestic violence at the hands of my family members. She couldn't take me along with her. So whenever I told my family about Minaz chachu, they would tell me, "Your mother was Hindu, we don't trust you'. This happens a lot in our family. I was not allowed to study after a particular point because they feel girls shouldn't be educated. I ran away and got married against my family's wishes. They filed a kidnapping case against my husband and my in-laws," she said.
